I’m receiving comments about Hyper Cache 2.8.5 not working. Some people found that going back to previous versions make it to work again. Since I’m pretty sure that Hyper Cache 2.8.5 should work as previous version, I installed it on a fresh blog and I tested it.
All fine. On another blog running a previous version, I updated to the latest and it started to work without pain.
Of course one MUST deactivate and reactivate the plugin after a manual upgrade and some blog folders must be writeable. Probably Hyper Cache is missing to show enough “system failure” information and does not drive the user to correct what’s wrong, but I can assure it works.
My promise is to extend the documentation to have a guide to debug not working installations!
