After upgrading this server to PHP 5 and mySQL 5 last week, I tested a new version of the WordPress caching system.
I’m sure most of you have seen the announcement in the WP-Dash for WordPress Super Cache.
I must say that after installing WP Super Cache on several blogs (including this one), and updating the old and clunky WP-Cache (which, IMO, is real hard to setup), the server seemed to be running much smoother now. Best part is that the plugin is now much more easy to install.
mySQL loads are down and access times are up. Some plugins might not work (such as Recent Comments, Pageviews Count and Who’s Online) due to the cached pages. But, if your blog is raking in a ton of traffic and slowing it down, this new plugin might be a ton of help.
