Should the page cache be refreshed often? (2 posts)

    In the w3 total cache there is the option to set the time until the cache is flushed (and thus, recreated on the next time a visitor comes by).

    My question is, assuming I've got a lot of content on my site that doesn't change almost ever, why would I not just set the caching to stay for days (instead of getting flushed every hour or so)?

    Is there a problem with that strategy?

    You can enable priming or set the time for expiration quite high if you never want to regenerate pages. Fundamentally, you have to favor towards temporarily having content cached in what is intended to by a dynamic application.
