Using LiteSpeed Cache with Wordpress & WP-Super Cache

    I am running LiteSpeed Enterprise Edition 4.1.4 and trying to get LiteSpeed Cache setup to work with my Wordpress 3.2.1 and WP Super Cache 0.9.9.9 configuration.

    My goal would be that WP Super Cache produces the static files and they are served using LS Cache as suggested by NiteWave in this thread

    I'm struggling to figure out the correct .htaccess RewriteRules that I should be using as while I've had some minimal success getting home page cached, I get 404 errors on individual posts as well as not being able to login or access wp-admin.

    This is my LS Cache settings:

    Code:
    Storage Path: /diskcache
    Max Object Size: 512 KB
    Enable Private Cache: Yes
    Private Cache Expire Time (seconds): 120
    Do-Not-Cache URL: /wp-admin/
    This is my existing .htaccess:

    Code:
    # disable directory browsing
    Options All -Indexes
    
    # BEGIN WPSuperCache
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress
    I've tried adding E=cache-control:max-age=120 to the existing rewrite rules but that does not seem to have any effect.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions / guidance on how to get this working.

    LiteSpeed serve static file as fast as serving cached page, actually, cached page is saved as static file.
    So, if you make Super Cache work properly, you do not need to worry about page cache. both archive the same goal, the result is similar. And I think Super Cache is better at flushing out-dated pages.

    Hey George :)

    yes litespeed web server has inbuilt static file caching already out of the box

    Litespeed cache is more for php caching that static file.

    @eva2000: to clarify, if I am already serving static files via WP super cache that adding LiteSpeed cache provides no additional value?

    LiteSpeed cache may help on pages that are not cached in WP super cache.
    I am not sure how many. if most are cached, litespeed cache wont help much.
