  • Resolved WraithKenny


    Line 255 of wp-cache.php checks against permissions 0755, but on my shared hosting, the hosts recommendation is to set to 0700 (my apache/php user is my ftp user so no group or world permissions are necessary.)

    Can that check be changed to something more permissive of stricter settings? I’m hoping to conform to the host’s recommendation but I can’t convert the file permissions until that scary message won’t cause all kinds of support calls 😉

    Thanks, you’re plugin is a five star!

    The development version of the plugin checks the last 2 permission numbers rather than the whole lot so this shouldn’t happen if you try that. (Test it first, there’s a lot of new code)

    I’ve tested the Development version and the new code recognized my setting as strict enough (thanks!)… Except under “Directly Cached Files” which probably needs the newly updated code snippet 🙂

    Also, I like having the menu item under the Network Admin -> Settings section, which implies that the settings are Network Wide. Having two more links on each site (under both Tools and Settings) is a bit redundant in MultiSite though (and slightly confusing), since the settings are global… Unless you are adding individual site configuration for the next build?

    (I’ve also never noticed that clicking the Headings on the Advanced tab hides the text (must be new). Perhaps consider the WordPress style treatment for collapsible sections (widgets) and load with them closed… or Accordion maybe. Just a thought.)

    I fixed the “directly cached” warning. I think I left links to each page in the sidebar because of existing links to the Options page. The chunks of code that print those links have to be updated.
