Pro Auto-Cache Engine not scheduled after upgrading from Quick Cache Lite #291

When you upgrade to Quick Cache Pro from Quick Cache Lite and then enable the Pro-only Auto-Cache Engine feature, doing so may not trigger the cron job to be scheduled, thereby preventing the Auto-Cache Engine from running at all.

@jaswsinc writes...

The lite version sets the crons_setup option too, but it doesn't come with the auto-cache engine, so when they install the pro version, the routine that sets up the CRON jobs in pro (which does include the auto-cache engine) may never run. See:

Clicking the "Restore" button in Quick Cache when starting with the pro version would be a short-term solution.

I have verified that clicking the "Restore" button does fix the problem. See next comment.

If Quick Cache Options have been customized, you can backup your options first (Dashboard → Quick Cache → Plugin Options → Import/Export Options), then press the "Restore" button at the top of the options page, then Import your backed up options configuration.

I have verified that clicking the "Restore" button does fix the problem.

Further analysis has led me to discover that the cron job appears to get deleted after running the first time, so this "Restore" workaround will only get the Auto-Cache Engine to run one time, not at 15-minute intervals as it should.

I will prioritize this bug for the next development cycle so that we can get a fix out as soon as possible.

I am a new QC Pro user and just encountered this.
My temporary solution, which seems to work:

  • Set QC Plugin Deletion Safeguards to completely erase on uninstall.
  • Manually record any special options as required. Most installations should be pretty vanilla.
  • De-activate and uninstall QC Pro from WP Dashboard/Plugins.
  • Make sure the free version is also completely deleted if not already done.
  • Re-install QC Pro.
  • Re-configure all QC Pro options and save.

Auto-cache engine should start and run every 15 minutes. Monitor cache contents to confirm.
