WordPress Super Cache is the king of caching system for WordPress, I really satisfied with it. Easy to install and configure. This plugins built in with a lot of featured that will make you WordPress website running more faster than ever. The Cache System is the perfect for doing better in this WordPress World.
WP Super Cache is a static caching plugin for WordPress. It generates html files that are served directly by Apache without processing comparatively heavy PHP scripts. By using this plugin you will speed up your WordPress blog significantly.
This plugin is a fork of the excellent WP-Cache 2 by Ricardo Galli Granada. WP-Cache 2 caches the pages of your WordPress blog and delivers them without accessing the database. Unfortunately it still means loading the PHP engine to serve the cached files.
WP Super Cache gets around that. When it is installed, html files are generated and they are served without ever invoking a single line of PHP. How fast can your site serve graphic files? That’s (almost) as fast it will be able to serve these cached files. If your site is struggling to cope with the daily number of visitors, or if your site appears on Digg.com, Slashdot or any other popular site then this plugin is for you.
Here some featured that you will got on WordPress Super Cache
- A plugin and hooks system. A common complaint with WP Cache was that hacking was required to make it work nicely with other plugins. Now you can take advantage of the simple plugin system built in to change how or when pages are cached. Use
add_cacheaction()like you would with WordPress hooks. Plugins can add their own options to the admin page too.
- Works well with WordPress MU in VHOST or non-VHOST configuration. Each blog’s cache files are identified to improve performance.
- Normal WP-Cache files are now split in two. Meta files go in their own directory making it much faster to scan and update the cache.
- Includes this WP-Cache and protected posts fix.
- Automatically disable gzip compression in WordPress instead of dying.
- As Akismet and other spam fighting tools have improved, the cache will only be invalidated if a comment is definitely not spam.
- A “lock down” button. I like to think of this as my “Digg Proof” button. This basically prepares your site for a heavy digging or slashdotting. It locks down the static cache files and doesn’t delete them when a new comment is made.
- Supercache static files can be regenerated while serving a slightly out of date file. This will significantly lower the load on a busy server with lots of traffic and comments. Think of it as an automatic “lock down mode” for every page on your site.
- Automatic updating of your .htaccess file. (Backup your .htaccess before installing the plugin!)
- Don’t super cache any request with GET parameters.
- Better version checking of wp-cache-config.php and advanced-cache.php in case you’re using an old one.
- Better support for Microsoft Windows.
- Properly serve cached static files on Red Hat/Cent OS systems or others that have an entry for gzip in /etc/mime.types.
- The Reject URI function now uses regular expressions.
- Supports the Bad Behaviour plugin if installed (Half on mode only).
- Supports plugins that show a different theme to mobile devices.
