If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I received the following errors when working with the W3 Total Cache plugin recommended by you guys.
-The page cache rules could not be modified. Please create an empty file in /.htaccess and run chmod 777 /.htaccess to resolve this issue.
-Disk enhanced page caching is not active. To enable it, add the following rules into the server configuration file (/.htaccess) of the site above the WordPress directives . Or if permission allow this can be done automatically, by clicking here: .
-Browser caching is not active. To enable it, add the following rules into the server configuration file (/.htaccess) of the site . Or if permission allow this can be done automatically, by clicking here: .
-The required directives for fancy permalinks could not be detected, please confirm they are available: Creating and editing
I’m not an expert by any means, so I was hoping you could offer some guidance on how to go about fixing this situation?
You need to access your site via ftp. If you don’t have any ftp software you can install Filezilla. Here’s an instruction on how to use it: http://www.velnetsupport.co.uk/parrots/FTP/Filezilla/
On your filezilla click Server > Force Showing Hidden Files
Once you have accessed your site via ftp, open public_html folder(I’m assuming your site is not a subdomain, if its a subdomain, open the folder of the subdomain) and you should see files like wp-config.php, try to check if there’s an existing .htaccess file kindly right click on the file and select “File Permissions” check all Read, Write and Execute or just put 777 in the Numeric Value below. Once its done, kindly go back to w3total cache.
