I experience a weird issue on Magento ver. The FPC was enabled in backend (Cache Management) but var/full_page_cache didn't exist. I figured out that app/etc/enterprise.xml was missing. After I restored it from a vanilla Magento installation the folder got created. But the size of the folder does not increase although I'm hitting several category and product pages:

du -sh full_page_cache/
4.0K    full_page_cache/

It stays empty. I've already set the folder to 777 but no change.

Does anyone know what is may causing the issue?

    If app/etc/enterprise.xml was missing, probably other cache related files are missing as well. Check that the Enterprise_PageCache module exists for a start... Oct 14, 2015 at 6:05
  • Thanks Jonathan! Only the enterprise.xml was missing, caused by .gitignore. It turned out that FPC wasn't configured correctly in etc/local.xml

Please check:

  1. If app/etc/enterprise.xml exists and check its content
  2. If app/etc/local.xml contains a <full_page_cache> node. Maybe its not configured correctly or configured to use Redis or another cache.
