[Plugin: WP Super Cache] Cache Working On A Per User Basis?

  • I was testing my site in multiple browsers and noticed the query count and timing I have in the footer. On the same page in one browser (as an anonymous user) it stays the same if I refresh the page. But if I open a different browser and go to that same page it creates a new cache file which is then served to that user over and over again upon refresh. Shouldn’t all users see the same cached page?

    Note I’m using half-on mode because of an mfunc command. I tried disabling that code, removed the mfunc etc and my results were the same as mentioned above.

    Am I missing a setting?

  • I noticed something else…

    On another site (which I know is using super cache. I did a view source and see this as the last line: “<!– Dynamic Page Served (once) in 1.529 seconds –>”.

    Note the “(once)” part?

    On my site, I see this as the last line of the source:
    <!– Dynamic page generated in 0.854 seconds. –>

    I’m guessing that “(once)” tag has something to do with this?

    The previous post appears to be version based after further research.

    Another thing to note:
    When I load a page in firefox (lets say) I can see the cache file being created: “wp-cache-eab2666771bac18604d50f5419c0c7cb.html”. Refreshing the page serves that file correctly.

    But then loading the same page up in IE creates another new file:
    “wp-cache-f3eb4a12ce2832564c134d19c3909cc0.html”.
    Refreshing the page in IE again serves that file correctly.

    After doing that refreshing the Firefox page still serves wp-cache-eab2666771bac18604d50f5419c0c7cb.html until garbage collection comes around or cache is manually cleared.

    So confused…

    You’re probably logged in as a different user (or not) in each browser. That’s why you’re seeing this.

    I am not logged in as any user when testing this.
    I also tested it from another computer (but on the same network) and had the same issue as described above.

    Any other ideas?

    Note, this appeared to be because of a server configuration issue. I moved it to a different server and everything started working fine. (its now on a linux box). The previous box was a dev environment hosted under windows with apache 2.x and php 5. I was also running the site off of a port: 8085 (since I have other sites on that box). Any of these things might have played a role, but I never narrowed it down.

    Hopefully this will lead someone else with the same issue down the right path…
