    Does not work with GT 3.0.9, if the user is not logged in, I’m getting 500 error with the following record in the error.log

    [03-Jun-2012 16:55:34] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 104857601 bytes) in /home2/xxxxx/public_html/yyyyyy/wp-content/advanced-cache.php on line 163

    Once disabled the plugin everything went back perfectly. Previous version of the theme was working just fine with this plugin.

    Stiofan, having issues with GT Booster and GT Vouchers (Jeff Rose plugin) I need to be able to run BOTH – any tweaks or work arounds that you may think or know of would be great to make GTB work with GTV or any other plugin for that matter.

    It’s throwing a JavaScript error preventing other scripts (like mine) from running on the front end.

    Gt Booster seems to help my site speed but when activated, it seems to be conflicting with the price page. After selecting a price package my site goes to a white screen. Is this happening to anyone else?

    Maybe this is a compatibility issue with the new WordPress release?
    I had a website that was running perfectly with caching enabled until yesterday, when I upgraded WordPress to 3.4.2. Now all I see on mobile devices is the weird characters that one of the other posters here mentioned. I’ve noticed that some other caching systems I use on other sites (different theme) have similar issues when gzip is enabled for some reason. However I was unable to find a way to disable that (if applicable at all). The weird characters look like some binary is being sent to the client..

    okaufmann says:

    hey there,

    i searched for a solution in both, geotheme support and here, but didnt found anything, so: booster forces me to set the chmod for wp-config.php to 755 or higher, but only 777 works…. i guess that’s a big security problem or am i wrong?

    • Boss
      stiofan says:

      I have not heard of anyone having to change the permissions on wp-config.php, some folders might have to be changed to 755 or higher. I would suggest setting it to 777 and then working down untill you find the minimum it will work with. 777 permissions is not a risk by it’s self, you would need other script/server holes to actually do anything with it. I have never had any problems with it.

    After installing and activating this plugin the entire look of my site was re-arranged. When I deactivate the plugin everything goes back to working correctly. When activated, it is almost impossible to navigate the site because all the images open and the navigation breaks down. Any ideas?

      You should not have to buy again, in the main menu, hover on your profile pic and then select my orders, then find GT Booster and click the order ID, from there you should be able to download.

    I purchased GT Booster and activated it and it just jumbles all the code, I get a white screen with odd code all over it. I deactivated it and everything works normal again? Please assist? I am currently hosted on host gator and have noticed other people with problems with this host?

    Thanks Ryan

    • Buyer
      frankmedia says:

      See one of my previous replies. It appears that some hosters use a default compression type that causes issues with GT Booster in certain browsers. From what I understand the underlying problem is that GT Booster is trying to compress traffic that is already compressed or vice versa. IIRC correctly a different setting for gzip or deflate somewhere might solve this. Unfortunately I got sidetracked with different problems before I was able to solve this issue. I’ve also found that some caching plugins (including GT Booster) and thumbnail scripts can cause problems when combined with a firewall plugin such as WP Firewall2. The repeated calls to the thumbnail script url might be detected as an intrusian attempt. If you find that every so many thumbnails are missing in your listings, then adding whitelisted values or parameters might be a temporary (though less safe) solution. Right now my site is running uncached which is causing significant performance issues so I hope to see a definite solution for the GT Booster ‘double’ compression thing soon.
