I want to use W3 Total Cache plugin. Installed plugin succesfully but i'm trying to enable Page Caching and i'm getting this error :

Page caching is not available: advanced-cache.php is not installed. Either the /home/content/92/7450992/html/wp-content directory is not write-able or you have another caching plugin installed. This error message will automatically disappear once the change is successfully made.

Plugin can't create advanced-cache.php to wp-content. wp-content's CHMOD is 777 but still same error.

Do you have any idea ?

  • I have exactly the same problem I used WP-supercache before i installed W3TC.. I uninstalled WP-SC, No solution yet,

  • Did you verify to see if the entire /wp-content/w3tc/ folder is missing?

Had you verified that there is no advanced-cache.php already there from another plugin (or as leftover of one)?

You can try to copy this file manually from W3TC folder: wp-content\plugins\w3-total-cache\wp-content\

  • there is no advanced-cache.php file.
