I have W3 Total Cache installed in a WordPress network, and I have just activated the plugin on the first network website.
When I try to turn page caching on, I receive the following errors:
The page cache rules could not be modified. Please run chmod 777 /…/wp-content/w3tc-siteurl/pgcache to resolve this issue.
It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.
Disk enhanced page caching is not active. To enable it, add the following rules into the server configuration file (/…/wp-content/w3tc-siteurl/pgcache/.htaccess) of the site . This can be done automatically, by clicking here: .
- I have chmod /wp-content/w3tc-siteurl/pgcache to 777.
- .htaccess exists in the web root, and has permissions of 777
- the rules mentioned in the 3rd error already exist in that particular .htaccess file
- The topic ‘The page cache rules could not be modified. Please run chmod 777’ is closed to new replies.
