What type of cache do I use on VPN? (5 posts)

    I am using W3TC and I moved from shared to a VPN on dreamhost.

    I still have W3 installed but I read that I should be using Opcode caching or memcache.

    What do you think?

    Do I need to switch and can you recommend any good tutorials.

    If I can stay with W3TC are there new configuration since I am on a VPN?

    You can stay with W3TC on your VPS with us.

    If you want, you can install memcache on your server: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Memcached

    You may already have XCache installed, and you can certainly use that with Opcode Caching and W3TC :)

    Thanks, the panel says I can't install X-Cache because I am on php 5.3

    Sorry it took so long to reply! WP's supposed to email me and it seems to be hanging a little.

    You are correct, we only have xCache with PHP 5.2. You don't have to use caching with your opcode, and in fact unless you're having a significant amount of traffic, may not need it at all.
