Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » [Plugin: W3 Total Cache] VPS with LiteSpeed and cPanel having W3TC activation errors

    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.

  • Also, when I need to install a plugin I have to provide my FTP information. I got around this by adding my FTP info to my wp-config.php, but could this have anything to do with my W3TC problem?

    In the W3TC compatibility check I see that W3TC is looking to write to /.htaccess
    shouldn’t it be directed to:
    /home/andrew6/public_html/.htaccess

    W3TC compatibility text:
    /.htaccess: Not write-able
    /home/andrewm6/public_html/wp-content: OK
    /home/andrewm6/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2012/03: OK

    Are you sure that PHP is able to write files? Users and groups are ok?

    Thanks for the reply Frederick,
    Turns out that W3TC was trying to write to the root of the server, not the root of the cPanel user account, which would be /home/andrew6/public_html/

    PHC: http://www.phcorner.net/ also hosted @ vps.net, any tips on htaccess cache to implement?
