First, let me apologize to any visitors that may have had problems getting to my blog when using a Mac running OS X. I use a Macbook Pro for some work and just found that a recent change I made to the way I had caching setup on my server was causing problems for some of those who tried to access my blog via their Mac. If a user tried to go to one of my pages they would receive an error saying either “Cannot Decode Raw Data” in Safari or “ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED” in Chrome.
I use W3 Total Cache for caching on this blog and also use Memcache for caching. I had recently switched the Page Cache option to also utilize Memcache. Apparently some Mac’s don’t like that when a page is served via cache using Memcached and generate the above errors. After determining what was causing the issue I quickly switched the Page Cache option back to using Disk Enhanced. Problem solved and everything seems to be working normally now.
This is a quick post first to apologize to any users that may have experienced the issue and second to alert people who may be running similar setups and have the itch to use Memcached for page cache in the W3 Total Cache WordPress plugin.
