[Plugin: Hyper Cache] Hyper cache and super cache (5 posts)

    Hi there and Merry Christmas to you all.

    I just started using hyper cache for my blog in hopes of solving the problem of using too many server resources which is the major cause of suspension on many of the servers I've been to. I've heard that super cache works great in taking care of the problem so I started using it, but then I came across hyper cache and started using it too. But there's one question I need to ask, will these two plugins conflict with each other if I try to use them together or is it all right to use them together to super performance?

    Have you noticed any conflicts using both?

    WordPress doesn't support two caching system... and there is no advantages in using two caching system.

    Worse, you only get a lot of disk space used. Install wp-super-cache or hyper cache. Try both and choose the one suits better your needs. If you have some monitoring system to look at your resources usage, use it to compare the two cache systems.

    Bye, Satollo.

    Satollo,
    I also tried both plugins.
    Hyper cache is great, but is it doing exactly the same thing that wp-super-cache does? Is there no database connection aswel? What about cache pages for logged in users?

    Each of them will try to save an advanced-cache.php on your /wp-contents/ directory, so therefore only one of them will actually run, if at all.

    My personal advice is to try Donncha's plugin first and put it on "on mode". If it works, your CPU load is much less and your site loads much faster.

    "On mode" serves cached pages without running PHP or making database connections at all.

    If "on mode" doesn't work, well, Hyper Cache and WP Super Cache "half-on" have essentially the same mechanism and share some features, although each has unique features and options. Hyper Cache is a somewhat better deal because it uses a little less memory.

    Is there no database connection aswel?

    If the page is in the cache, yes, for both.
