Complied CSS Publishing Issues


Question

Posted · Report post

Every time I publish a page on my site the "compiled-css-1383069739.css" get a 404 for a period of time (varies) and then after a while eventually works.  I'm unsure why this is happening but I can't have a broken looking site every time I publish. 

 

I don't see any information about this in your docs. 

 

I'm currently building my site right now at www.experticity.com. You won't see the new stuff unless you add this (66.175.213.137  www.experticity.com) to your host file.

 

I'm using the base theme customization. 

 

I thought I might be able to work around it by not using styles.less and just use styles.css but the problem seems to still be happening. 

 

Thoughts?

Looks like wp engine?

 

They have a staging area, and also very aggressive caching on the production site. You are using production to develop.

 

The staging area has no caching at all, thats why you should be using it for developing.

This issue still seems to be providing an issue for me.  Although I can work around it in staging its not an ideal workflow for a team to use to make updates to the site. 

 

After extensive discussion with my host it appears that the DMS removes the old css file when it compiles the new one causing the issue of my site looking broken when I publish a page from the DMS. 

 

WP Engine has done something on their end for www.experticity.com to work for the time being but as I try to set up separate themes for our other sites I'm running into the same issue. I don't want to have to call WP Engine every time I set up a new site to disable something on their end to get it to work.  Is there something I can do within the DMS that will solve this issue?

 

I've set up sites for:

66.175.213.137  www.3point5.com   
66.175.213.137  www.promotive.com 
 
Please let me know. Thanks.
