Support » Plugins » wp-cache – not your typical blank page – “whooami” help please!

  • Ok…I’ve been through the forums and developer’s site for the instructions. Here’s what I have so far.

    1. I have the install in place and have activated the plug-in with all settings set to default
    2. I have the symbolic link between the two files. advanced-cache.php and wp-cache-phase1.php
    3. I see the “cache” directory
    4. When I surf the site to cache some pages, everything is fine and fast but when I clear my local cache and try to surf the site, it comes up with blank pages.
    5. I check the cache directory and do see cache pages written to it. However, the html pages that are written to it have a base url of my main account of a shared hosting. For example:….

    I set up a directory redirect so that everything going to would get redirect to but that didn’t work either. Still…blank pages.

    Is there a way that I can explicitly set the base URL that is written to the cache files, so that instead of it’d have a base URL of http://subaccount ?
    can I edit any of the wp-cache files to change that setting?

    I appreciate the topic title, really i do 🙂 but, unfortunately, I can’t help you. 🙁

    I don’t know any more about that plugin than what I’ve read on these forums, on the author’s site, and in the readmes he included in the zipfile. IN fact, you probably know more than me. 🙂

    I would think that the plugin would be intuitive enough to use your blog settings to create all the cached files.

    The changes you have made, are you redirecting server side, or have you actually gone in and changed the 2 uri values in your admin area?

    Lovely of you to respond! I saw your suggestions and patience with some other people so I was hoping to hook your eyes to my plight. 😉

    I’ve set up the redirect on the server side.

    You see, you do know more than I do. I don’t how I should set up the URI values. Got some suggestions for me to try out?





    oke. so what you have done thus far is this then ..

    you have a blog thats actually located at

    and you are redirecting using your .htaccess to a subdomin?

    like ??

    Not quite. I have a shared hosting account on bluehost. With one account, I can host up to 5 domains but one of the domains is considered the primary account. So for example, is the primary account. I can access this account and set up an add-on domain. That essentially gives me a subdirectory off the primary account. File structure wise, it’d look like this, but I’d surf it up as and get to the proper root directory for that domain/subaccount.

    I didn’t edit any .htaccess files to add a subdomain. I added the sub account via a control panel so I am not sure how it’s handled. I suspect on the server side.

    Does that info help?




    ok, so you have basically added on another completely different domain name then, correct?

    If i were to look at your cpanel, then I could click on addon domains, and I would see another domain in there?

    when you look in your addon domain link inside cpanel, do you see any redirection options in there?

    basically what it comes down to is this. If you are redirecting to you need to tell wordpress that. While wordpress will probably handle the redirections invisibly, plugins that require knowing that information might not.

    the settings you are looking for under the options tab,

    WordPress address and Blog address

    I cannot guarantee that changing them will not result in your admin or your entire blog being inaccessable given what you have already done. But if that does happen, it’s fixable after the fact.

    There are redirection options available. The scenario you described with being redirected to is not correct. It’s more like… on the server side, the caching files are being written like, when it should be writing them Follow? I think that’s the snag. If the cache files were writing , I’d be fine. That’s why I tried setting up a redirect of to go to but that didn’t help. I even tried clearing the cached pages afterward to make sure.

    Frusting…seems like there’s some variables that tell wp-cache how to find it’s blog root directoy. If I knew that, I’d be ok. I also emailed the developer to see if he could help. Any other thoughts?

    Thanks again. for your quick responses and energy.




    yes, i do follow, which is why I said what I said.

    When you do into that cpanel screen so you see a domain ???

    You set that up, correct??

    You have to tell wordpress. the plugin only know what wordpress tells it.

    Yep, the domain is set and wordpress also knows which domain to point to.
