Some words about caching

WordPress > 2.0 is equipped with a powerful caching module that helps to significantly reduce the load on your database. This plugin is caching the results of its queries in case the following conditions are met

1) WordPress caching is enabled in your wp_config.php:

define (‘ENABLE_CACHE’, true); define (‘CACHE_EXPIRATION_TIME’, 1800);

2) The folder your_wordpress_dir/wp_content/cache is writable by the Webserver

3) Your site runs with PHP Safe Mode Off
