Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » Page Cache URL rewriting is not working

    hi, I just update to Versión 0.9.2 of W3 Total Cache and get this error in the dashboard.

    It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.

    I had no error before the update, can someone please help in how to fix it ?

    Thanks.

  • Maybe this will help.
    I see that it has helped some people.
    Going to try it myself and will let you know.

    How to install W3TC

    That link has not helped.

    This seems to have helped.
    I deleted my .htaccess file, created a new empty one.
    Set it to 777 and auto-added all necessary code.
    Also need to add the code here
    Now all I have left is this

    Haven’t figured out how to make this work since everything looks to be set right. I am a bit concerned though, since I think that once I set permissions for .htaccess back to 644 I’m going to probably start seeing the same error messages.

    Hoping someone has a solution.

    Thank you all for your hard work.

    Yup. Looks like as soon as I attempted to deploy I began to see the same errors.

    It appears Minify URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.

    Sorry for so many posts, I am working on this and really wanting to be helpful.

    Thanks

    Alright looks like so far the only way to make things work has been to:

    Set page cache under general to basic and not enhanced but it does make everything load much faster than when it was set to enhanced (backend)

    And finally, had to disable URL structure rewriting so now it sets GET variables.

    Had to purge the cache, seems like front end is loading very very slowly now but backend is much faster than under enhanced.

    Seems to work, will look for further updates from you guys.

    Thanks

    Thank you for your input.
    Disabling “Rewrite URL structure” gets rid of the error warning, but scrambles the theme…

    same problem here with this latest 0.9.2 version.
    I tried in all ways, make a clean new install, reset .htaccess file, checking permissions, reset plugin settings (i keep them to all default values), empty all caches…

    but when i deploy settings the web site seems scrambled like not applying css!

    I have noticed that this happens just if im not logged as administrator, if i visit the website logged as administrator both preview and deploy settings all working fine.

    I have the same error messages:

    It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.

    It appears Minify URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.

    by now i keep the plugin disabled until a fix is done!

    After updating to 0.9.2 I noticed that /w3tc-[domain]/min/.htaccess and /w3tc-[domain]/pgcache/.htaccess contained the rules of both the old and the new version. The rewrite rules of the new version are simply appended to the old rules.

    After fixing that I still got 500 errors when I tried to open any of the w3 total cache setting pages. To fix this problem I had to delete the settings file w3-total-cache-config-[domain].php

    To mimic the situation of a clean install I also removed the W3TC info from the root .htaccess file.

    After that W3TC was running in basic mode.

    The 500 errors reoccurred when I tried to modify the root .htaccess file to add rules for disk caching. The only way to solve that problem was by commenting out the last rewrite rule of the W3TC Page Cache core:

    # RewriteRule .* "/wp-content/w3tc-%{ENV:W3TC_DOMAIN}/pgcache/%{REQUEST_URI}/_index%{ENV:W3TC_UA}%{ENV:W3TC_REF}%{ENV:W3TC_SSL}.html%{ENV:W3TC_ENC}" [L]

    That disables the page cache, so it is not a real solution.

    It seems this version has some serious bugs, which is a pity because there are some really nice new features in this version.

    Just piping up to say: same problem here. I’m using a Genesis child theme as well… not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    I disabled “rewrite URL structure” under the ‘Minify’, and that killed the error. I’m not sure how much this will impact the caching, but as a temporary fix – until the plugin is fixed – it seems to be working.

    Update: I have had to turn off minify completely, as it was keeping the site templates from working – the site would come up as it would basically without a stylesheet.

    I got rid of W3 Total Cache altogether and got “Quick Cache” instead. My host said my site is running MUCH faster now.

    Just upgraded to 0.9.2 and got NO THEME CSS on both sites. Under General Settings – Minify – Minify Mode, I switched to manual and it fixed it for me. Will be watching for a permanent fix.

    I’ve found a way to stop the error. First, go to Minify page settings. Then uncheck the “Rewrite URL structure” box. I don’t know whether it fix or not but the error stop showing.

    Heres a quick fix for all in the same boat.

    In General Settings.
    – Page Cache (Disk Basic)
    – Minify (Manual)

    That will fix the problem mentioned in the first and second post of this thread.

    Another bug is the lightbox windows for some settings (try wizard in minify settings), those don’t have a background and become useless, so wait for an update that fix the bug.

    Well … That gets rid of the error but doesn’t explain WHY we get the error 😉
