First, thank you for your amazing job with this plugin.
Now, my issue is that sometimes the Remove category base option stop working which result in all product categories return 404. This has happened multiple times to two of my clients for the last 6 months. My clients are on different servers but run similar stack with Nginx (no apache). My clients only have the role shop_manager and have no access to settings. I’m the only administrator and since this always happen when I’m not doing any work on the sites it seems to not be related to core or plugin updates or maintenance.
At first I thought it was related to Redis Object Cache or Redis Page Cache, but the issue keeps appearing even with all types of cache disabled.
The issue is easily fixed temporarily by going to Rank Math > General Settings > WooCommerce and just click Save Changes. The Remove base and Remove category base options are already On but just not working properly. Unfortunately I haven’t had time to investigate any deeper since it’s always the client who find the issue first.
Does anyone have any suggestion of what might be the cause of this?
