  • Resolved kevmartin



    We have installed this plugin and seem to have got everythign workign fine (at last). Except for one thing.

    We are using CDN self hosted, and the plugin continually seems to create infinite recursive directorys in the CDN sub-domain, each time we update, it adds a new subfolder. Our subdomain is And we have the FTP path set as: /public_html/static

    We end up with folders at: /public_html/static/static/static/static/static/static/

    … and so on

    It is a CPanel server. Current version of the W3 Cache plugin.

    Can anyone suggest what may be the issue please?

    I believe a bug submission form was submitted about this at one point and the issue could not be duplicated.



    Same here. I think the problem is that for testing purposes we set up a subdomain for CDN which pointed to a folder inside the WP installation.



    See this thread and this thread.

    This solution worked for me:

    On W3TC CDN configuration page, I removed favicon.ico from the custom file list and added the original (non-CDN) location of the favicon(s) to the rejected file list.

    I am still able to serve the favicons from the CDN by uploading them to the corresponding location in the CDN folder and designating this location in my theme.

    This is working for me on a 2-site multisite and a single site installation, all using self-hosted CDN.

    Hope it works for you too!
