    Hi,

    I’ve tried finding this function but not found the options.

    Does it actually have static HTML cache like WP Super Cache?

    Thank you

    Basically yes, but cache plugin for WP is a webserver driven HTTP cache and doesn’t need PHP to generate cache. Without PHP cache plugin for WP is much faster and costs less load than other PHP based cache plugins.

    FYI: Cache plugin for WP is only a control panel to manage the cache. LScache does the job for caching.

    Do you mean static HTML cache generation is web server (LiteSpeed) job?

    Since I’m running Nginx and Nginx has no such function, so I need WP Super Cache. Is that right?

    What do you mean with “static HTML cache”?

    A HTTP cache like cache plugin for WP or other cache plugins always generate static files from the complete output and this output is HTML.

    I mean, it creates HTML copy of the page and stored somewhere, usually inside wp-content/cache

    So that when visitor access, web server load directly from there without touching PHP.

    Exactly! This is what cache plugin for WP does, but it doesn’t store these files in WP directory. Depending on server configuration such files are stored either in /home/account/lscache or in SHM /tmp directory outside of user account for faster access. Last one is a temporary location and the content of this directory will be emptied after every server restart.

    LScache additionally compresses these static files.
