Trying PL5 on a new WP Engine hosted installation (using a child theme for PL framework) with SSL cert and style is "gone."
I'm Using DMS 2 on WPEngine and after asking myself where my site was gone this morning - all page settings were lost - I just got this message from my host service WPEngine:
417539 pl-settings 184137 pl-user-templates
I wouldn't expect that WPEngine changes their behavior so what could I do to prevent database entries in wp_options to grow that large? What exactly is stored there that can be larger than 1 MB and how can I reduce the size?
We are using pagelines in an WPEngine environment that is cached by a varnish.
Whenever an editor makes a change eg on the home page the less will be re-compiled, which takes up to a few seconds.
What we witness then nearly every time is that the page references css that point to a 404, which makes the entire page unusable of course.
This lasts until the cache-age expires which is in our case 10 looong minutes
If we re-publish the page the problem is gone (most times or it re-happens).
Just trying to understand, maybe this is what happens:
I didn't find a pattern of how compiles-css files are stored or deleted. e.g. yesterday we published a couple of changes and there is no css file in the uploads directory from yesterday but many from last month etc.
I think the process might be like so:
1. I publish a page
2. the old css is deleted
3. in the meantime the page is broken and will be cached with 404 css references
4. then new css is re-compiled and saved to the uploads dir
5. the reference to the new css is saved to the database
6. after 10 minutes (cache-age expired) the new css is available
If this is the case pagelines doesn't support varnish - am I right?
Pls. let us know how to proceed. We have a large print campaing leading traffic to our site and it's broken as soon as we edit a thing.
Thanks in advance
Please help. I cannot activate plugins without crashing the DMS editor. My theme, wordpress and plugins are all up to date. Even the Pagelines Pro Tools plugin crashed the DMS editor. I cannot edit my pages without disabling my plugins.

OK, so I've been having some issues with WP Engine, mutlisite, and Pagelines DMS2. I searched the forums, and the closest thing (that didn't exactly work) was this: http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/38307-wp-engine-server-migration-copy-installation-problem/?hl=database
To make a long story short, when I created my staging site, the Site and Home URL were messed up (it was adding "www." to the beginning). After fixing that issue in the DB with a find and replace (using the same interconnectit tool in the above forum post), all the sections are suddenly blank. I can't figure out why... All I did was replace www.[stagingsite].wpengine.com with [stagingsite].wpengine.com. The first one was wrong, so if anything I would have expected to have problems with that one...
Any ideas? Here's the staging site:
Here's the live site:
