[Plugin: WP Super Cache] Mode rewrite rule cannot be updated (6 posts)

    I'm using Super cache and having this message :

    Mod Rewrite rules cannot be updated!

    You must have BEGIN and END markers in /.htaccess for the auto update to work. They look like this and surround the main WordPress mod_rewrite rules:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Refresh this page when you have updated your .htaccess file.

    So I have updated my .htacces file and refresh the page, (and relaunch the browser as weel) and I stillhave this message. Is it a problem and how to solve it?

    thanj you for your answers!

    That's odd. Are you sure you updated the right .htaccess file?

    OK, I found out the trick. I have inserted the lines at the bottom of the files, and it did not work. I've tried at the top of the file and... it's ok!

    Well, I did not find the trick and it is not resolved. Anyone has a clue?

    I've updated the .htaccess root file, the .htaccess in the site directory, I don't know what to update now...

    I was going in circles with this issue same as you (.htaccess had begin and end, just like it was supposed to) and finally realized it was a really ridiculous error.

    At some point after downloading/editing/uploading the file, ".htaccess" lost the dot. e.g. I was looking at "htaccess" on the server, thinking it was fine.

    Renamed to add the dot in front ==> victory.

    Figured this might help some confused person coming across this is the future.
