Hyper Cache 2.6.6 and WordPress 3.0

Some user reported on WordPress plugin directort that Hyper Cache 2.6.6 DOES NOT work with WordPress 3.0. I’m checking when that is true, because on my blogs Hyper Cache IS working with WordPress 3.0. Please, if you are experiencing problems try to report directly to me via email (last months where incredibly busy I had not time to read all comments left on this blog).

Please, do not write me “is not working”, it’s hard to solve any problems when the only information is “not working”. As always, to check if Hyper Cache works or not, use a clean browser (clear the cache and the cookies), load a couple of time some  pages of your blog and check the HTML source of those pages to see if in the bottom there is the Hyper Cache signature:

<!– hyper cache: 0a58463ffb19a31747f17ef3b268ec43 10-07-11 01:04:07 –>

If the signature is there, Hyper Cache is working.

My address is always the same: info@satollo.net.

My excuses for my bad english but it's the only way I have to communicate with you. Would you suggest a correction? Leave a comment, thank you!

  1. My solution was to remove this from my functions.php:

    if(extension_loaded(“zlib”) && (ini_get(“output_handler”) != “ob_gzhandler”)) {
    add_action(‘wp’, create_function(”, ‘@ob_end_clean();@ini_set(“zlib.output_compression”, 1);’));

    My old approach to get a little performance (gzip with lzip) seems to break the Hyper Cache plugin.. Glad I found the bug 🙂 Hope I might save others for some time..

  2. Hi there,

    Thank you for doing a great job getting this up and running.

    However, it seems like the bug hasn’t been fixed yet – even though we are several versions further than this post.

    I’ve got the latest and greatest version of WP and Hyper Cache on my brand new WP blog.

    I did visit and browse the site with IE private browsing and Chrome Inkognito. No signature (browsed the same 10 pages a lot of times).

    So the Cleaning process seems to be working just fine (updating the “next clean stamp”).

    I’ve changed the chmod of the cache (and hyper cache subdir) to 777. I only get 1 file in my cache folder: “_archives.dat”. The file is empty and I don’t know when the file is generated, but it seems to change the file last modified date on a regular basis.

    I’ve tried to deactive the plugin and reactivate. Tried to deactive, delete, install and activate. Tried to deactive, delete manually, manually delete cache folder, install and activate. All with standard settings.

    I did try to disable the “Disk space usage” setting at first use – but it seemed to be buggy to just save that setting (it kept checked/active).

    WordPress version: 3.2.1
    Hyper Cache: 2.8.5

    I’ve got a custom theme – so maybe I need to include some WP-stuff I don’t know about? Do you require more than wp header and wp footer?

    I’ve been using other cache plugins before, but I read a good benchmark of your plugin putting Hyper Cache in front of all the others competitors, so I would really like to try it out and maybe use it for all my blogs in the future. (Donations are of course given to my favorite plugins)

  3. Hi Stefano,

    I’m a developer and familier with caching and browser behaviour etc, so confident this is a genuine bug.

    With hyper cache enabled on my blog, it all works really nicely except the (cached) home page is a load of gobblygook (?’s etc). I’ve checked the character encoding and everything is set to UTF-8. Furthermore, hyper cache seems to work just find on all other pages.

    If I clear the cache, the home page is fine for the 1st reload (not from cache) but then broken after that. Currently I have disabled caching on the home page.

    I’m on WordPress 3.0.4, Hyper Cache 2.7.9.

    Also, I am unable to uncheck the disk space usage option – i.e. it does not save. I thought maybe this setting could help out my 1st problem!


  4. hi,
    i’ve downloaded one of your plugins, “bookmark me”, but it doesn’t work. it gives me an error message: “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page”. What should i do?

    Thank you in advance.

  5. thanks for explaining. i didnt know it work because i was logged in at that time and i didnt activate cache for home page. but why when i logged in, it didnt reserve the cache?can i activate it also when i logged in?

    1. Cache systems usually do not cache pages for loggind in users because wordpress renders such pages in a different way (think about the commet form area).

  6. i just to say if hyper cache work with wp 3 but there is no caching and the folder cache on folder hyper cache plugin is empty just file test.dat even i have modify the permission into 777 it doesnt work. the cache is still not there. thanks.
