In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to Speed Up WordPress Website with WP Super Cache. I start cashing your WordPress pages to make your site load faster and provide a better user experience for your website visitors. Previously I have published an easy tutorial to Star a Blog for Beginners.
Hey, guys welcome back to another tutorial where we help you get better WordPress so you can earn more for yourself for your clients and for your collogues.
The first thing we have to do is install this plugin so here we are in the WordPress dashboard if we go over to plugins and then click on add new. It’s a very popular plug-in created by the creators of WordPress automatic with 2+ Million Active Installations and quite often appears at the very beginning of the featured tab. if you don’t see it there this type in WP super cache in the search and then it will appear right here click on install now and then activate it.
If you face the problem of showing the message – A custom url or permalink structure is required for this plugin to work correctly. Please go to the Permalinks Options Page to configure your permalinks. Then simply go to the Permalinks Options Page by clicking the link. Select any option you like or leave that as default (I recommend to select the radio button – Post name for SEO friendly) and then Save Changes.
Now Notice a message up there saying it’s disabled please go to plug in page to enable caching. we have a similar message right below the plug-in down here so we can click on this link to go to the admin page or if we go over settings it adds a WP super cache option right there we click on that.
WP Super Cache
Now we are going to discuss speed up WordPress website with WP Super Cache. Now to turn caching on all you have to do is click on the radio button – Caching On (Recommended) and click on update status and it’s on and there is there something that super cache looks. Now super cache in its the most simplest configuration is now running that’s all. After saving you should to run “Test Cache” to verify that all are working well.
Advance Tab Settings
Cache Delivery Method
- Simple (Recommended)
- Disable caching for logged in visitors. (Recommended)
- Cache rebuild. Serve a supercache file to anonymous users while a new file is being generated. (Recommended)
- 304 Browser caching. Improves site performance by checking if the page has changed since the browser last requested it. (Recommended)
- Clear all cache files when a post or page is published or updated.
- Extra homepage checks. (Very occasionally stops homepage caching)(Recommended)
- Only refresh current page when comments made.
- List the newest cached pages on this page.
All Set then click on – Update Status
Expiry Time & Garbage Collection Settings (Recomended)
This is most important and I recomend these settings as below for super fast your wordpress website.
- Cache Timeout – 86400 Seconds
- Scheduler – Clock – 0:00 HH:MM
- Interval – Once Hourly
That’s all. Click on Change Expiration.
CDN (Content Delivery Network)
For CDN I recommend Jetpack CDN along with Cloudflare. If you want to setup Cloudflare, please comment below, I will give a new tutorial for that separately.
Contents Tab Settings
Here you can see the number of Cache pages that the Super cache has generated. You can manually delete that pages also.
Preload Tab Settings
This is recomended, if your site have below 10000 posts. It is use to generate your posts caches after a define interval time. It will pre generate all posts,pages,categories and tags caches. It can consume a lot of your Hosting resourse. So I recomend you to not to activate these settings.
