Support » Plugins » W3 Total Cache Refuses To Cache

  • Resolved Nic Windley


    I’m having trouble getting any pages on to cache.

    When I run Firebug I see the headers always output as;

    Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate, max-age=0, private, no-cache, no-store, proxy-revalidate, no-transform
    Pragma: no-cache, no-cache

    I’ve checked the settings in W3 Total Cache and the htaccess file and everything looks correct and I’ve compared it to another similar site I have used W3 Total Cache on.

    I’ve disabled all plugins and seem to get the same result which is very strange indeed.

    Any idea what is stopping pages cache and how I can fix this ?

    p.s. I use the WordPress Mobile pack on this site also.
