    Hello !

    I have just installed the plugin on a Multi-Site enabled installation. There was 4 codes mentioned on w3Toal cache plugin page to be copied into .htaccess file. I have copied the 3 codes

    The fourth code is showing like this :

    The required directives for fancy permalinks could not be detected, please confirm they are available:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ $1/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    I have checked my .htaccess file and can see this default code for multi-site installation :

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    I think I would get problems if I copy this and remove the default one. Can you please help me to resolve the issue?

    WordPress version : 3.1.1
    Multi-Site enabled ? Yes
    Buddypress enabled ? No , But will install in future

    Thanks !

    You should use the code that works for your installation, just pay attention to the directives noted specifically for your W3TC settings.

    No, there's no reason to at this point.
