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

    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:

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

    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.
