WP Super Cache WordPress Plugin

Super Cache is a fully dynamically generated caching plugin for WordPress. It significantly increases the performance of your site, reducing the time to load and saving bandwidth. This plugin works by intercepting every page request and if needed, loading a copy of the page from your own computer or a CDN (Content Delivery Network) around the world. If there’s no need for pages to be dynamic, Super Cache will render it entirely on the visitor’s machine, taking zero load time from the webserver host. This will reduce your server load and speed up your site dramatically.

Cached files are served in three ways (ordered by speed) by the plugin:

Expert: To serve “super cached” static HTML pages, the quickest option is to use Apache mod-rewrite (or whatever comparable module your web server supports). This eliminates the need for PHP and is highly fast. Because the requests are “lighter,” your server is more likely to cope if it is overwhelmed by a deluge of traffic. You’ll need to install the Apache mod-rewrite module (which you presumably already have installed if you have custom permalinks) and make a dangerous change to your htaccess file, which might cause your site to go down if done improperly.

Simple:  PHP can serve super cached static files, and this is the preferred approach to use the plugin. If a “super cached” file exists, the plugin will serve it, which is nearly as fast as the mod rewrite technique. Because the htaccess file does not need to be modified, it is easy to configure. A custom permalink is still required. In this caching option, you may keep elements of your page dynamic.

WP-Cache caching: Caching pages for known users, URLs with parameters, and feeds are all examples of this. Users who are signed in, visitors who post comments, or those who should be presented bespoke per-user data are all considered known users. It’s the most adaptable, but it’s also the slowest. If super caching is off, WP-Cache caching will cache visits by unknown users. In this mode, you may also include dynamic portions on your page. You can deactivate caching for known users, URLs with parameters, or feed independently in this mode, which is always enabled. If you simply want to utilize WP-Cache caching, set the constant “DISABLE SUPERCACHE” to 1 in your wp-config.php.
