Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » [Plugin: W3 Total Cache] Disk (enhanced) Page Caching rebuilding cache on every page visit

  • Resolved KZeni


    Everything appears to be working except for the fact that every page view regenerates the cache files. There aren’t any errors to report, both the gzip & html files are successfully created in the pgcache folder, minify & other features work, and using disk (basic) page caching actually does work (but I’d still like to use enhanced if at all possible).

    Things I’ve tried w/o success:
    – Disabled every plugin on the site.
    – Disabled gzip.
    – Disabled every w3tc feature other than page caching.
    – Disabled XCache (using “php_value xcache.cacher 0” in my .htaccess)
    – Enabling CDN (though I didn’t see this through to set this up “properly” [ie. using a subdomain]).
    – Visited pages with cookies disabled
    – Visited pages with different browsers
    – and more.

    I’ve run out of ideas at the moment, and I hope there’s a way to get it to work properly.

    I removed the URL from the debug info since it’s a development site at the moment. It doesn’t matter which page you visit since this issue is site-wide, and the timestamp is different on every page view.

    I contacted my hosting provider (Rackspace Cloud Sites), and they show that the pages are indeed pulling from the cache files. However, they weren’t able to determine why the cache files are being recreated for every page view.

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Will have to reply to your email to help directly.

    Is this an issue inherent with RS Cloud Sites? We’re experiencing the same thing on our site.

    same here, plugin re-create cache file too often than ‘3600’ (Garbage collection interval:) sometime 5 sometime 2 minute and homepage never been cache even i enable ‘Cache home page’

    i use disk (enhanced) and found some people say in other thread that after upgrade plugin to new version, disk (enhanced) wont cache properly and they change to disk basic so everything work same before…. is it bug?

    Plugin Author Frederick Townes


    That’s odd. Can someone having this issue please submit a bug submission form from the support tab of the plugin?

    We already removed the plugin.

    Hi Frederick,

    I replied to the email that you sent me in regards to taking a closer look at the problem. Just want to make sure you didn’t miss it 🙂

    I was hoping updating to WordPress 3.2.1 (from 3.1.x) would do something magic & it would start working… nope :-/

    Hey, did you find a solution to that? Same problem here, no disk enhanced caching

    Any solution to this yet? Exact same issue is being discussed here. Has anyone received any help from Frederick from submitting a bug report?
