Wordpress on Ubuntu 14.04 and W3 Total Cache Issue

Posted June 27, 2014 4k views

I’ve installed “Wordpress on Ubuntu 14.04”.

Minifying and Leverage browser cache functions aren’t working in W3 Total Cache plugin.

Enabling minify return minified urls to “Internet server error”.

My apache2 error log is showing “[core:alert] [pid 21411] [client 182.185.178.183:59287] /var/www/wp-content/cache/minify/.htaccess: Options not allowed here, referer: http://example.com/

Did anyone else experience such issues?

That plugin seems to need the ability to override MultiViews option. To allow it to do that, edit the file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf Find the section that looks like:

<Directory /var/www>
        Options FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride FileInfo
</Directory>

And change it to look like:

<Directory /var/www>
        Options FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride Options=MultiViews FileInfo
</Directory>

Finally, restart Apache:

service apache2 restart

Thanks, I got it working :)
