    Hi – since i upgrade to 5.0.8 – i’m getting a lot of white screens due to the following error ..

    PHP Fatal error: Uncaught RuntimeException: Failed to write cache file “/nas/content/live/linwoods/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/zip-recipes/cache/61/6173092293ea6936ce08e4fd7b1ce1f02b09c1430c4be828a56c59d4da0a7a27.php

    .. on WP Engine.

    I’ve been onto WPE support and they’re going to look into it but they’ve asked me to contact you in the mean time as they reckon there’s something wrong with the way you’re writing these .php files to this new cache location (change from 5.0.6 -> 5.0.7) – would you be able to take a look?

    In 5.0.6 – the cache was wrote to /wp-content/plugins/zip-recipes/views/cache/ but in 5.0.7 the cache is wrote to /wp-content/uploads/zip-recipes/cache/ and somehow what’s happening is that the .php files that are wrote to this new destination have their .php extension stripped off them? Not sure if this is by WPE or is it something that’s happening within the plugin as a conditional or something?

    In the mean time – i’ve downgraded to 5.0.6 (cache writing to /wp-content/plugins/zip-recipes/views/cache/) and all seems to be working again on WPE – but i’d really appreciate it if you could have a quick look into this – just to rule out anything on your end?

    I have taken over development of this plugin since a few weeks, and I’ve been trying to rectify some things I’m not happy with in the previous version. I guess this was an unintended side effect.

    The intention was to stop writing cache files to a folder within the plugin itself, which I don’t really like. The new location is the uploads folder. Possibly in your setup it’s not allowed to write php files to the uploads folder.

    I have decided to drop this caching part of the twig files. Can you try to comment out the following line in _inc/class.ziprecipes.util.php, on line 125:

    if ($cacheDir) $twig_settings['cache'] = $cacheDir;
    by adding two slashes in front if it like this?
    //if ($cacheDir) $twig_settings['cache'] = $cacheDir;

    This will stop the plugin from using the cache folder.

    I will also update the plugin with this addition by the end of the day.

    Let me know if this helps!
