Support » Plugins » [Plugin: DB Cache] Two questions

  • Hi all,
    this is a great plugin, but before I install in a producition enviroment, I have two questions:

    1) Does it work with WP Super Cache?
    I wold to try both the plugins active. Are there some issues or they can work together?

    2) The Cleaning Hooks and the Editing Workflow
    I noticed that the cache is cleaned every time a post is edited or published. Eg.

    add_action('publish_post', 'dbc_clear', 0);

    At the moment we have more than 1000 posts in our website. The caching of frontend it’s OK. But regarding the backend, our editing workflow needs that a post is edited more than 10 times before it’s published.
    I think that if I disable the hooks, I could have problems with data freshness after update queries.
    So, the questions are:

    does this feature can affect the CPU every time I edit a post because the cache files are all deleted?
    Let’s say that I save a post every 5 minutes and I have more than 100 cache files generated by frontend queries. They will be deleted all, right?

    Or is there a way to delete only cached files created by backend operations?
    Or if it is not possible, at least not to cache backend queries.

    Thanks in advance

    1) Oui, monsieur.

    2) dbc_clear only deletes expired cache files.

    3) some queries and situations are automatically skipped:

    // cache only frontside
    if (
    	defined('DOING_CRON') || strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],'wp-admin') ||
    	strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],'wp-login') || strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],'wp-register') || strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],'wp-signup') ||
    	preg_match("/\\s*(insert|delete|update|replace|alter|SET NAMES|FOUND_ROWS)/si",$query)
    ) $dbc_cachable = false;
    // for hard queries
    if (preg_match("/\\s*(JOIN | \* |\*\,)/si",$query)) $dbc_cachable = true;

    3) Yes
    4) No, see #2
    5) See above conditions.
