How do I know if Super Cache is installed properly? (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I have just installed WP Super Cache in the mu-plugin folder. Then I also activated it by turning on the WP Cache and Super Cache.

    Nevertheless, I can neither find the file in wp-content/cache/.htaccess, nor find any .htaccess with the rewrite rules supposedly to be added after activation.

    When I did a test with http://ismyblogworking.com/, the result of before and after turning on WP Super Cache:

    Before:
    Your blog seems slow. It took 1.73 seconds to generate the page.
    1730 ms page generation time
    2450 ms page fetch time

    After:
    WP Super Cache is active.
    249 ms page generation time
    979 ms page fetch time

    Which seems like some improvement in the speed. And I could also locate the cached files in /wp-content/cache/supercache folder.

    So my question is,

    1. is Super Cache properly installed on my server?
    2. do I need to copy those rewrite rules into a particular .htaccess file?
    3. do I need to create wp-content/cache/.htaccess?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. No.
    2. Yes.
    3. Yes.

    It's running in "half-on" mode right now.

    @donncha: Thanks for your reply. As for 2, do I just create a .htaccess file under the root blog folder?

    @donncha: I figured out what's wrong after spotting the missing mod_head and mod_expire message, then wp super cache showed the necessary steps to the completion.

    So my new question is, how do I know if I am currently running in supercache mode?

    Thanks in advance.

    Check the readme.txt, there's advice there on how to tell which mode it's running in.
