I'm using a VPS from vps.net with LiteSpeed and cPanel.
On a clean WordPress install I immediately install W3TC.
Upon activation I get the error that /wp-content needs to be chmod 777, so I do that.
Next error is to add define('WP_CACHE', true); to config.php, so I do that.
Now the plugin is activated but I get an error that .htaccess needs to be chmod 777, I do that, but W3TC never writes to it, even after clicking auto-install. So I manually copy and past the code into .htaccess and the error still comes up that the code is missing.
I can not deploy. After clicking deploy the message 'Preview mode is active:' still exists with the option to deploy.
I've created 3 different cPanel accounts with clean WordPress installs and W3TC always gives me the same errors.
Any tips would be helpful.
