Support » Fixing WordPress » No Cache Plugins working with wordpress

  • I have three websites on my hostgator shared server (sprybag.com, purplepinkstore.com, yagneshplastics.com).
    A few weeks ago everything was working fine. But yesterday when I checked my website speed on gtmetrix and pingdom, i get the “Leverage Browser Caching” error. I have Wp rocket and wp total cache installed on the websites, but none of them are able to create cache.
    I am working with wordpress since quite a few years and have never faced this issue before.
    I cannot contact wp rocket support because My licence has expired. Total Cache support is literally dead. So no help there.
    Any one has any suggestions?

    PS- Here’s my htaccess file content

  • If you have the same problem on all three of your websites, and you haven’t done any changes before that happened, I’d say it is the time to talk to Hostgator support.

    Did talk to hostgator support a couple times. They say they are looking for the solution and in the end request me to hire a developer to look into the matter.
    Yesterday I asked to be connected to a higher level support and he told me some sort of caching has been forced on my server due to “increase memory usage”. I requested for further details..
    Maybe hostgator forced caching is causing this issue..

    Well, that could be it then. In any case, consider moving to some serious hosting company, Hostgator is… I mean I wouldn’t keep my websites there even if they were paying me for that. 🙂 Do some reading/research at http://www.webhostingtalk.com
