A site we built was totally grinding to a halt on our BlueHost shared hosting account when we started getting traffic over a few hundred sessions. Other caching options weren't working and Pods Alt Cache did the trick! After setting up the cache parameters, it very quickly resolved the issue. Great file-based solution for server configurations that don't offer customized control over object/mem caching.
Works like a charm!
I had to disable object caching on one site due to inconsistency of GoDaddy's caching with another plugin (Google Calendar Events).
After renaming of the /wp-content/object-cache.php file (to just make object caching not function) - PODS ended in Fatal Error crashing the entire website:
Cannot call overloaded function for non-object in .../general.php on line 230
Then I spotted this cute "Pods Alternative Cache" plugin, installed it and made the trick with object caching disabling again. Keeping my breath I reloaded my website and ALL WORKED! Now both PODS and GCal Event are functioning with no errors.
Thank you guys very much for creating this addition to your beautiful PODS framework!
Works fine, excellent, five starts, keep updated.
This plugin made a huge speed improvement in our Pods-based site hosted on WP Engine. That's impressive considering WP Engine already provides server-side caching.
Our site has highly-connected Pods relationships resulting in hundreds of database calls per page. Our initial experience with the Pods Alternative Cache is it takes longer to generate uncached pages, but once they're cached they're lightning fast.
