Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » WSOD but only occasionally…

  • Resolved G-Olly


    Hi Futta,

    I am having an infrequent problem with my site regarding the use of WP Fastest Cache and Autoptimize. For some reason I get a white screen of death on the front end every now and then. I have minify enabled on both of these plugins and they seem to work together nicely. But when WP Fastest cache deletes the minified css/js cache at the time specified by me as part of it’s function, it causes a white screen of death until I also clear the Autoptimize cache. I am not exactly sure why.

    As I say this is not a massive problem as it occurs only occasionally but if I am not doing admin for a long period (holiday or something) then I fear it could render the website useless until I return.

    I believe that maybe a scheduled cache clearance of the autoptimize cache folder could help me out as I could schedule the clearance of both plugins to happen at the same time which would hopefully rectify this issue. Are there any plans to make this a part of the plugin?

    Evening g-olly;
    I strongly advise against using multiple css/js minification plugins simultaneously. Does the problem also exist when not using WPFC’s CSS/JS minification?

    Kind regards,

    I do not know to be honest. I will test today and let you know.

    I have disabled the combine and minify html/css/js in WPFC. The site is still loading as quickly as before but I cannot test whether the WSOD has been affected, as I do not know the true reason to why it happens. I guess it will take a little time to fully see the outcome, but for now I am happy to leave the combining and minifying to Autoptimize!
