Support » Plugins » [Plugin: WP Super Cache] WP-Super-Cache DOES NOT work with 2.7!

  • I am writing this to give everyone a heads up. WP-SUPER-CACHE does NOT, I repeat, DOES NOT WORK with verson 2.7. Sometime during the development stages of 2.7. WP-Super-Cache stopped functioning. I notified the author, and he WANTED ME to “Debug” the bloody thing. Which is impossible, because for starters, I know zero about debugging or programming, not to mention, I am on shared hosting and have no access to Apache logs. My Blog is on’s servers, which piggy back on The Planet’s servers.

    It just will not cache pages, like it was doing. It will install, but if you turn it on, it does not cache at all. it changes your .htaccess like it is supposed to, But no cache at all. I even tried turning off compression the numbers stay at zero.

    Just letting everyone know, before the heartache begins.

    Pat the personal attacks are very immature and if they continue you will be blocked. Also being polite will always get you more answers.

    It’s not in “the market”. It’s free software. Donncha spends a lot of time making this free software, and took time off from his day yesterday to debug it with me. You don’t have a right to the software, or to free support. I’d recommend being much more polite in the future if you want assistance.
    He doesn’t provide a service. That absolutely incorrect. He wrote a plugin and allows others to use it for free. He doesn’t owe and free support, so you should appreciate that he provides it at all, rather than demanding it on your terms.

    I have to agree with hallsofmontezuma.

    If anyone is unsatisfied with this plugin or with Donncha’s help (which, I think is hardly possible) then he or she has the freedom to uninstall WP-Super-Cache.

    Good idea Erunafailaro, or for that matter WordPress, and any other free software. WordPress doesn’t offer free support either. Why don’t you try contacting a WordPress core developer and see if they will help you out when you have a problem?
    WordPress has had more than its fair share of times when things didn’t work well. Go ahead and tell Matt that he needs to be a “serious programmer and a real man”, and offer free support for you when you can’t get something working on his free software.

    *Waving White Flag!*

    Okay, I checked that list. and so far everything checks out. I installed, again. Checked the permissions and settings.

    I turned the ol’ Girl on and this is what I got:


    * 0 cached pages
    * 0 expired pages


    * 2 cached pages
    * 0 expired pages.

    She cached two pages and then quit. I’ve checked again.. and she only did two pages. is there something that I’m missing here?

    I love the Plug-in, I just wanna get it to work. 🙂

    I think I may found a bug… Wow!

    Okay, looking in the / public_html / wp-content / cache / directory… I’m seeing the files.. so, Super and normal cache is working.

    But the number reporting dept is not. It’s showing the number of super cached files, but the normal one’s ain’t being counted. They’re working, but the problem is that the Plug-in ain’t displaying the number of files cached. (Normal cache, not super, super is working, I’m not sure about the expiring part.

    The reason I thought the plug in was broken, is because the numbers we’re not displaying like they were.

    I knew it had to be something. I’ll let you know if the number of the expired cache are working or not. But your normal cache number reporting system ain’t working… at least on this server.

    Don’t ask me man, I just report what I see. 🙂


    Okay, this Plug-in is making me look REEEEEEALY Stupid man.

    The Cache section is working…. Just not like it was before.

    I think it might have something to do with you adding that temp directory or file feature in the last major release.

    It’s counting it, just not nearly as fast as before. AND, the super starts counting before the normal cache does. Didn’t do this BEFORE.

    All the yelling and acting a darned fool for no reason at all. I will be sending an apology via twitter as well.

    Stopped working for me too after upgrade from 2.6.5 to 2.7-RC1-10073
    No pages are getting cached or served cached

    Working fine here on 2.7 RC1 @my blog

    and thank goodness that you are apologizing. Donncha is a great guy and like others said, it’s free and he spends all day and night to give us this wonderful plug-in and here we are complaining! 🙂

    Back to topic, err yeah it’s working fine here (but I’m still 0.8.4 though, not the latest one, which is 0.8.6)

    pinkflozd – checked the trouble shooting section of the readme and verified it’s none of those issues?

    i have wp 2.7 rc1 on our company blog with the wp super cache 0.8.6 working fine as well.

    <!-- Dynamic Page Served (once) in 0.110 seconds -->
    <!-- Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2008-12-08 17:56:05 -->

    btw, if you are using nginx rather than apache, this article at slicehost has a nginx conf section

    yes i tried all possible tricks…tried also completely deleting it and deleting all entries … then reinstalled all files get created, define( ‘WP_CACHE’, true ); is there … the trick is that i use lighttpd, but it worked flawlessly since wp 2.5 -> 2.6.5 … did you changed the rewrite rules?

    by the way thanks for this magnificent server saver

    Edit: Tried with apache … doesn’t work either

    Works fine on my site.
    WordPress 2.7-RC1-10119
    PHP 5.2.6
    Hybrid Theme – Old School child theme
    MySQL 5.0.67
    Only other plugin is Akismet.

    I have used this on a few different sites – any (rare) problems have been plugin-related. I was trying to break the (test) site at the time so I knew it was my fault.

    dooncha – love your work. Thanks!

    pinkflozd – can you email me at donncha @ and send me login details for your server? Maybe I can debug it and figure out why it’s messed up.

    Paleo – I had the same problem. I disabled all my plug-ins, then re-enabled them after upgrading. Enabling the cache isn’t enough; you also need to turn it on in the configuration page under the settings menu. The new layout threw me and it took a while to find.
