WP-Cache Problems

I've encountered some unusual issues with WP-Cache today. I'm using PHP 5.1.4 and MySQL 4.1.21 with WP-Cache 2.0.20 and WordPress 2.0.5. Gzipped content is disabled (Options -> Reading).

When I enable caching, cache files are created in wp-content/cache/, but the counters at the bottom of the WP-Cache Manager page always say "0" (cached pages, expired pages). I've even gone so far as to restore the default configuration. The "Delete cache" button removes the cache files. Permissions on the cached files are rw-r--r--.

I also never see a cached file. I'm always served dynamic content for some reason. This problem exists regardless of whether I have Daniel's modifications installed or not.

Folders have appropriate permissions, symlinks are properly set up, and the config has a cache as "TRUE" like it should. Yet two things are wrong: the counters don't count and cached pages aren't actually being served.

What gives? Any suggestions?

  1. [...] A few days ago I wrote about a problem I was having with WP-Cache. Cache files were being generated, but none of them were ever being used and the cache counter in the admin area never incremented (it always read zero). [...]

  2. I don't have a solution but I am experiencing the same problem.. wp-cache2 was actually functioning earlier but I disabled and enabled it a few times and now it seems to be totally broken 😛

    I get the <!-- Dynamic Page Served (once) in 0.175 seconds -->
    but not the Cached Page Served by xxx

  3. I have the same problem. 🙁

    Please email me if you figure anything out.

  4. I have the same problem. wp-cache works fine ith two add-on domains but doesn;t cache my primary domain site.

  5. I was having this problem after enabling the Kimili Flash Embed plugin. Seems the two conflict. Disabling the Kimili plugin fixed wp-cached for me.
