[resolved] Can someone settle my Cache debate? (3 posts)

    So I'm not a newbie, but I'm not too bright either. When choosing a caching plugin, you have the two big ones, W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache .. and then the rest.

    I don't really care about them, since neither of the authors offer any support. That's why I'm reaching out to those in the .org community.

    If you were in my situation, what would you use?

    • I am with HostGator on a VPS. They won't install opcode, xcache, or memecached.
    • I have a database that's about 78MB in size
    • I'm using Cloudflare, although one critical plugin doesn't work with their Rocket Loader, so I cannot use that, which cuts down my load times from 7 seconds to 2 seconds
    • I'm using CDN linker to link to Amazon Cloudfront ... the html output says cdn.occupyhln.org on the external .js files and images and all that ... not sure if it's doing anything

    Anyway, is this enough to determine which cashing plugin to go with? I'm so undecided that I seriously wanna beat my head against the wall. W3 worked okay, but it broke my font-awesome icons in my menu ... I don't know ... lost. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    My domain in question is http://www.occupyhln.org .. it will be up and down all weekend until I find the right solution.

    neither of the authors offer any support.

    While they can't answer for every topic posted here, they do support their respective plugins! Both plugins are so matured that most new requests are likely to have answered already. They respond to bug fixes and look into any security issues almost instantly.

    W3 Total Cache in particular has paid support too.

    If you prefer stability over features, then I'd recommend WP Super Cache plugin.

    Thanks for your input, Pothi. I'll give WP Super Cache a try and see how that works.
