    ok well after a bunch of hours i figured out how to fix it. Somehow it put a dp.php in the /wp-config/ folder and when the program upgraded and wasn't activated it took the site down. Delete the 3 files it creates in there and the site came back up.

    Now ive got an issue where it wont install htaccess. I have /wp-config as 777 and the directory it installs under it 777. I am still getting the error. Is there anyway to create the .htaccess file with the settings it needs?

    I should of checked this post before upgrading. It did the same thing to my site too. Were you able to re-install the plugin? I've since completely deleted it until I read some positive feedback on it.

    I messaged the programmer and hes going to start following this forum. Honestly i think when this plugin gets ironed out it will be the best caching one out there. Mem cache is fantastic.

    Yes i did reinstall it fine, but then we had a issue where the .htaccess file wouldn't be writable in its /wp-config/w3 (somthing)/. Now im in the process of moving my virtual server to a different infrastructure so honestly i haven't put a lot of time into figuring out the next step to the puzzle. However I believe this could replace using DB Cache and Hyper Cache combined.

    Its ability to combine/minify/or any inbetween is great for themes like thesis where minifying the core thesis CSS files crash the theme.

    I'll keep this thread posted once i get the plugin online.

    With each release I add more error checks and notifications to make various cases easier to deal with. Being a pre-release everyone's feedback is important and valued. Unfortunately with so many hosting scenarios out there it's difficult to find everything myself. :)
