This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WP Admin Cache


This lightweight plugin caches the most visited pages in the admin area; it uses ajax to prefetch the pages and stores them on the server for each user.

The cache is useful for sites with many installed plugins, which often make the administrative section very slow, especially in the case of woocommerce with many displayed products.


Minimum Requirements

  • WordPress 4.6 or greater
  • PHP version 5.6 or greater

Recommended requirements:

  • WordPress 5.0 or greater
  • PHP version 7.0 or greater


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/wp-admin-cache directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to Settings > WP Admin Cache
  4. Check “Cache enabled” to activate the cache.
  5. Choose which pages are to be cached.
  6. Set the cache duration.
  7. Save the settings.

this is a must have plugin. It is like a miracle. My WP backend became so fast. Everyone should try this. It would be awesome if the developer can continue to update, although everything works fine for now.

Hello. This plugin is great. At the end of the time we set in the plugin, it looks like we have to open the page once to create the cache again. If the cache is created automatically and continuously, we will not encounter a slow screen even once. Please develop the plugin to include all parts of WordPress including settings and plugin pages.
