New install - Have to clear browser cache for every image added or action taken in admin


Nov 09, 2014 09:16AM EST

Using Firefox or Chrome on Windows I have to clear my browsers cache or I cannot see newly imported content, new albums or categories and I'm unable to change Themes: I chose a Theme, pick "Use Theme" and nothing happens, I'm not able to "save changes". So I clear cache and now the Save Changes button is active. I save and get the spinning updating arrows which never leave and now my site is just a blank white page.

Using: Apache, PHP 5.3.28, MySQL 5.1

Any help appreciated!

Sounds like there’s something fundamental behind the scenes that isn’t functioning right. Are you hosting this through a web hosting provider? Or are you trying to use Koken in a localhost environment?

Hi Todd, I'm hosted at Site5. All checks passed, install was smooth as could be. Hit the cache issue right off the bat, couldn't see my first image upload test.

I'm currently running a Wordpress blog + Gallery photo site.
WordPress is the root, Koken is in a sub-folder (as is Gallery)

/ = Wordpress
/photo = Koken
/gallery = Gallery

Solved - W3 Total Cache for WordPress the issue. My Koken install was not a full subdomain of my main site, just a subfolder & W3 Total Cache for WordPress was affecting all contents of the folder as if it were WP (htaccess was telling the browser to cache all content for a year). Disabling W3TC or preferably creating a subdomain (duh) both worked. On my merry way now!
