I tried to enable cache in admin section but it says that Cache director is not found? Actually, it's not written anywhere that a cache directory is needed to activate cache and exactly where the directory should be placed? Moreover, what "cache" be the exact name of the directory?

I don't have q2a version 1.8 but Did you look at this: https://github.com/q2a/question2answer/blob/dev/qa-config-example.php#L89 ?
Thanks a lot for your answer, yes you pointed at the right place but, I am still facing some problem there. Let's see if I get it fixed soon. :)

fara mentioned steps are correct. I enabled cache on http://meta.question2answer.info site, you can test for speed. so far no issues seen.

To enable caching, the following steps need to be taken:

  1. Make a folder to store the cache files and chmod it to 777. Note: for security reasons the folder must be outside your document root. In other words you must not be able to view cache files in your browser like example.com/cache/123abc456def
  2. Set the QA_CACHE_DIRECTORY constant in qa-config.php to the location you made above (see qa-config-example.php for an explanation).
  3. Go to Admin > Caching and tick "Enable caching".
  4. Caching driver-> filesystem

this path will be like /var/www/html/yoursite/qa-cache

You can PM me exact path and site, will see why it is not working.

define('QA_CACHE_DIRECTORY', '/path/to/writable_cache_directory/');
I'm using q2a v1.8.
I haven't activated a cache. The site directory is: "/ srv / users / serverpilot / apps / geofili / public"

define ('QA_CACHE_DIRECTORY', '/ path / to / srv / users / serverpilot / apps / geofili / public / cache /');
define ('QA_CACHE_DIRECTORY', '/ path / to / srv / users / serverpilot / apps / geofili / cache /');
I haven't tried both. The file permissions for the Cache folder are 777.

What kind of path do I have to follow?
not working any method
Thanks bro. I tried a lot and succeeded in activating it.

1: Edit the path of the cache file

The path to the correct path should be modified in the config.php file

2:The code should become out of "*/"

This is what the code looks like


You can specify the file path after the third step

3:Select the file in which you want to save cache, for example "qa-config" and given it 777 permission 

4:Now click the right mouse button over the file you wish to save inside.

And choose the option shown in the picture

A new page will open for you, inside the full path link to this file

Copy and paste it instead of the word PATH in step two

I hope to be of benefit to you
