Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » Huge File Use in Cache Folder

  • Resolved webgeeze


    I tried using this and yes, it gave me a better score in GT Metrix alongside W3 Total Cache BUT it also caused me a major headache. My client site white screened and upon further investigation, i realised it was a quota issue.

    Looking into it, over 3 days, this plugin generated 1.5GB worth of automptimize cache files in public_html/wp-content/cache/autoptimize folder which pushed the client hosting account over quota and caused white screen.

    I checked the plugin and can’t see any kind of automation to purge the cache files. They just keep on building ….

    What’s the score with this? Am I missing something here, as this plugin seems to self destruct with an ever increasing pile of files being pushes into the cache folder.

    any tips welcome

    Hi Justin;
    As per the FAQ (which has more info on what is happening & why there’s no auto-purge) disable “also aggregate inline JS” (and optionally “also aggregate inline CSS”, although that rarely causes issues) and all should be fine.

    Hope this clarifies,

    Thanks Frank!

    Super quick response and my bad for NOT reading the manual 😉
