WP-FFPC

The fastest way to cache: use the memory!

Average Rating
4.7 out of 5 stars
Seems to work fine
By , for WP 4.2.2

I'm also using APCu Object Cache, they seem to work fine in parallel. I'm using PHP 5.6.8 with Zend OpCache and APCu 4.0.7. It's fun using the apc.php utility to see what the two plugins are storing in APCu, so yes, they really work.

Excellent cache
By , for WP 4.2.2

I use this cache on some sites and it's working great with a big performance boost. Very good work by the developer!

Still the best
By , for WP 4.2.1

I've used almost all caching plugins available on the market, some year ago tried FFPC and became super happy since. Recently I decided to check other plugins again and compare if anything changed during last year. It didn't. While other plugins are getting bloated FFPC is getting more awesome :)

Nginx 1.7 with memcached module + PHP 5.5.9 with OPcache and memcacheD + Memcached + MariaDB 10. Crazy fast.

Best WordPress caching plugin
By ,

The speed of the plugin is really unbeatable. Nginx direct access to memcached cached by WP-FFPC data makes it fast of fastest caching plugins. I use it 2 years more already - plugin is extremely stable and fast. Due to security reasons I don't use its pre-cache capability, just replaced it with Scrapy crawler and cron. Support is great, author Peter Molnar responds quickly. WP-FFPC is highly recommended to every WordPress user.

Excellent

Using it on all my sites, PHP 5.6 and APCU.

wow
By , for WP 4.1.1

cool!

and if people will add in .htaccess like this:

# Set up caching on media files for 1 year (forever?)
<filesMatch "\.(flv|ico|pdf|avi|mov|ppt|doc|mp3|wmv|wav)$">
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 year"
Header append Cache-Control "public"
</filesMatch>

# Set up caching on media files for 1 week
<filesMatch "\.(gif|jpg|jpeg|png|swf)$">
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 week"
Header append Cache-Control "public, max-age=604800"
</filesMatch>

# Set up 2 Hour caching on commonly updated files
<filesMatch "\.(xml|txt|html|js|css)$">
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 day"
Header append Cache-Control "must-revalidate, proxy-revalidate, max-age=86400"
</filesMatch>

# Force no caching for dynamic files
<filesMatch "\.(php|cgi|pl|htm)$">
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 day"
Header append Cache-Control "max-age=86400, proxy-revalidate, must-revalidate "
ExpiresActive Off
# Header set Pragma "no-cache"
</filesMatch>

all just f@cking fast!

Unbeatable combination with nginx-memcached
By ,

I've tried most caching plugins in this is the one that I think in my environment delivers the best results. I'm using the nginx-memcache integration and it works great. The plugin has no strange behaviour, is straightforward to use and easy to operate.

The nginx-memcached combo is not for the faint of heart but if you can master it there is very little that will deliver speed in such a clean and scalable fashion.

Only viable solution to sharing cache between nodes.

Other popular file-based caches are way too painful to sync.

Great for speed, but needs a lot of resources
By , for WP 4.1

I tried it and yes your site becomes really fast, but I removed it because you need lot of RAM/CPU power if your site becomes more visitors. It should be much better if you use this plugin together with Varnish. Without Varnish you need to use W3TC or SuperCache.

Makes my site slower
By , for WP 4.1

I install this plugin hope seeing any improve on my VPS response time .
But after many test I notice my site become slower every time I enable it.
if you don't test you site often you wont notice this but I used webpagetest.org to test every tweaking I do and when I enable WP-FFPC TTFB increased to 270ms from 142ms that regularly I got with my current tweaking .
Last I don't need this plugin any more I use it to flush APC cache and failed so I do it on old way
serves php5-fpm restart
and all cache gone away .
