  • Hi there. I have been using WP Super Cache for a while in “php mode” on a shared server (80,000 web pages), with compression disabled and about 6 hrs interval on cache deletion. I was unsatisfied about the overall performance and wanted to keep some dynamic content uncached. So I have uninstalled the plugin, however I admit that this is due to to a lack of proper settings balance. It takes time to tweak, and each case is different.

    I finally could make it to work the dynamic content through jQuery and testing again the plugin, seems working.

    Now I’m looking for advises about configuring properly the plugin at its best.

    Basically I’m experiencing server load due to spiders. Multiple spiders on large number of pages. Little traffic by users, some 1,000 page views a day.

    What settings would you use to begin with? Should I enable generation of static pages also for spiders?

    You should probably preload a large portion of your website, and if the spider bots are malicious then block them by IP or user agent.

    Thanks donncha, What settings would you use?

    BTW, now that I have developed the “dynamic” part of the site, I could also avoid rebuilding on new posts, apart from the home page… your thoughts?

    I have been watching at the preloading cache process.

    As I’m also using qTranslate, the site has multiple roots, “/” for English language and two letter suffix for the others (/de /fr /es, etc).

    As a result the preloading process begins indexing from the “english” root (default language), ignoring the other languages. If this the case, it would mean that only posts from one language will be preloaded.

    My site also has a sitemap (multiple xml files) with the correct order:
    – posts are sorted by time & language, per each post. Could you use a sitemap to achieve preloading correctly? Also multiple sitemaps?
