I was moving Bedzine, Keetsa, Sleepzine, Mattresszine, and Wagg.It to another server the other day and my WP-Cache kept stallin’ on me so I looked up go Google for a newer version. I found WP-SuperCache which is simply built on top of WP-Cache. Basically, the difference between the two is that the WP-SuperCache also creates a permanent page for pages that have no comments. There are some functionalities such as Lock-Down to help your server from going down in case you get Digged, Stumbled, or Slashdotted.
BTW, don’t use Aplus.Net for dedicated hosting, they had a downtime of almost 5 days! That’s worse than any shared hosting I’ve tried. The funny part is that, all our websites were down but Aplus.Net’s homepage wasnt’t. It explains how they prioritize their customers below their revenue. I’ve had similar experience with Cari.Net, our current host. But when our sites when down, their homepage went down too. Which makes another reason for them to make sure their servers up again. The downtime with Cari.Net wasn’t more than couple hours so I figure it was time for switch to Cari.Net and stop dealing with Aplus.Net. (Think about the time I wasted in moving those websites, changing DNS for the domain names, trying to cope with the new server enviroment. It’s headache and I am glad it’s stopped and our servers are purring.) We’ve got 3 dedicated servers now to run all the websites, costing us an arm and a leg every month. Order a review and help us keep this site live.
Download WP-Cache here:
Download and Install
- Remove any existing instances of WP Cache, as WP Super Cache is a drop in replacement. Don’t forget to delete the files wp-content/advanced-caching.php and wp-content/wp-cache-config.php.
- Download the newest version of the WP Super Cache plugin from the WordPress.org plugin db and follow the instructions contained in the readme.txt file. If you have installed WP-Cache before this shouldn’t be any more difficult.
- After installation, go to the WP Super Cache options page and set your desired cache time.
Aplus.Net website might be functioning from their DR location. But anyway 5 days downtime is too much.
