Support » Plugin: Fast Velocity Minify » Files doesn’t purge on 3.2.5

  • Resolved Combar Digital


    After updating to 3.2.5 CSS and JS files doesn’t purge when click “Clear Everything” on admin bar.
    I tried on 3 sites (WP 5.9) from 3 different servers: Apache, Nginx and LiteSpeed (all 3 are linux with php 7.4.27) without any other cache plugins or CDN and all three failed to purge.
    Tried with “Purge Minified CSS/JS files instantly” option activated and without it, also all failed.
    I checked the cache folders, all of them writable (755), in addition, if I delete the minified files manually via FTP they are re-created but without any changes from the previous version.
    Purge does happens when I deactivated and then activate the plugin again.

    I would appreciate your assistance.
    Thank you for your help.

    When you clear everything, even if the files were not purged physically, the new cache file names should still change (view html source) so cache should be busted and redone from scratch again.

    Can you please confirm that the file names are changing after purging, and that the problem is that the old ones are just not being deleted?

    Or are you for example, editing a css or js file and FVM is not updating the code when you purge, but is it still regenerating the new named cache files?

    Deactivating and Activating deletes the database table, and recreates it. It also calls the cache purge to clear the cache files, but it’s the same exact function.

    Maybe the purge everything option is no longer purging the database table… I need to look into it and get back to you later.

    Hi, Thanks for your response.

    I did the test you requested, and I can say that the files are indeed deleted and regenerated with new names, without updating the changes I made to CSS files.
    When deactivating and activating the plugin, the files are regenerated with new names and updated content.

    I noticed another thing, which I do not know if it is a normal operation of the plugin:
    After deactivating and activating the plugin the files are created with names starting with 0-css and after trying to “clear everything” the names change and start with {10 digit number}-css.
    I do not know if this is indeed a bug but I am writing this just in case.

    Awaiting your check, and thanks again for your help.
