Litespeed Cache Plugin Errors – I currently use Guru for hosting on this website and they use the Litespeed server. I receive good speed using this hosting, together with the Litespped cache plugin.

However, I have discovered an error with the Litespeed WordPress Plugin recently and I am not sure how long this has been the case.

Litespeed Cache Plugin Settings

There are many settings in the Litespeed Plugin, which means you have a lot of control in the caching setup. I might write a new Post on the best settings I have found.

However, I did discover a bad error and if you use the Litespeed cache plugin on your website, it would be worth checking this out. Before you do, it would be good practice to take a full backup of your website.

The error occured in the .htaccess file of my website which we are going to have a look at, but if you are not experienced in adjusting the coding in there, you would need to employ someone to look at this for you.

What Is The Litespeed Cache Plugin Error?

So, if you go to Litespeed Cache>Toolbox>Edit .htaccess this will show you the details of the code that is in your .htaccess file. Then inspect what is listed to make sure everything is there that should be there.

My experience was that when I made changes to the other sections of the plugin by turning things on and off, this for some unknown reason removed necessary code from the .htaccess file.

The concerning thing was that on a number of occassions it remove the necessary code to make a WordPress website work:

# BEGIN WordPress

# The directives (lines) between “BEGIN WordPress” and “END WordPress” are

# dynamically generated, and should only be modified via WordPress filters.

# Any changes to the directives between these markers will be overwritten.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule .* – [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

RewriteBase /

RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

</IfModule>

If the above code is not present in the .htaccess file of a WordPress website, then the website will not work and every page will give a 404 page error, except for the Home or Index page.

This is well worth checking out on your website to make sure everything is working correctly. I have reported the error.
