W3 Total Cache Errors

I installed W3 Total cache but when i tried to enable the plug by activating certain features such as "Page Cache" and "Minify",

I got these error messages

"It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration."

"It appears Minify URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration."

I tried searching for a solution on google for 5 hours but am unable to solve the issue.

I am using Affilorama premium hosting and would like to know how to allow .htaccess or even if its even allowed in the hosting at all.

If someone could help, i would be really grateful!

Hi Evan,

I think Premium Hosting allows .htaccess. Have you checked your control panel in Premium Hosting? I will ask a member of our technical team look into this and let you know as soon as I have feedback.

I appreciate your patience. All the best!

Yes i can get into .htaccess but unsure how to modify it.

Main issue im worried is that premium hosting does not support minify and page caching advanced? These 2 are the main features of W3 total cache :(
