Using object cache with W3 Total Cache (2 posts)

    Hi Frederick,

    I'm using object cache, which is the preferred caching method for BuddyPress.

    I'm just wondering what the performance enhancements are by using W3's page and database caching functions as opposed to object cache.

    If I want to keep using object cache and use W3's other enhancements like minify caching, do I just disable page and database caching in W3?

    Thanks for reading!

    No features need to be disabled, you can use any opcode cache you wish. If that opcode cache is not supported by W3TC, you cannot use it to store any cached objects withing W3TC, that's all. Disk enhanced for page cache, disk for minify and for single servers, disk for database will be fine (although opcode cache would be best). So if you can switch to APC, you could use it for database caching to have all of the ideal settings.
