    When using multi-site W3TC cannot automatically update your .htaccess file for numerous reasons, so the errors are there so you can update your .htaccess file manually.

    And when It’s edited manually? Will it still be enabled? I’ve added it manually, and it still says that error message. And do you know a solution for the ‘fancy permalinks’?

    You’ll probably need to submit a bug submission form from the support tab of the plugin.
