  • We have encountered an issue with multisite and this plugin’s cache.

    Generally, our plugin directories are not writable, and whilst we can set 777 on a plugin/cache folder, we’d prefer not to.

    For a multi-site installation, what are the implications of sharing this cache across multiple sites THAT MUST *NOT* BE CONNECTED OR SHARE DATA IN ANY WAY ?

    What if 2 sites share the same image name?

    Solution would perhaps be to put the cache in the blogs.dir/[blogid]/files directory some place? That way cache’s would always be separate for each site in a WP multisite setup.

    Please advise!

    Yes that might be a solution.
    Anyway i’m still developing some new features and bug fixes, so for the moment i’ll take note of that. Thanx.

    We note version 1.9.9 has just been released.

    From the Changelog, seems this suggestion here did not get included yet?

    Please advise!

    No it’s not included nor developed yet.
    Anyway, you don’t have to necessarily set 0777 on the cache folder. If you’re concerned about security, you have to make sure that at least the WordPress user can write on that folder to generate the thumbnails.

    Each sub-blog has its own instane of the SRP plugin, so each blog has its own cache folder. No matter if two blogs share the same image. That would be rendered and processed to generate a copy in the relative cache folder.
