How to temporarily turn off LiteMage for certain URLs in browser

You may want to confirm whether or not an issue on a particular site is being caused by LiteMage Cache being enabled but do not want to disable LiteMage Cache for everyone. You can do this by adding the GET parameter “LITEMAGE_DEBUG=NOCACHE” to the site's URL which will cause the page to not be served by LiteMage (available since 1.0.2).

For example: Enable LiteMage cache for your store and test the following URL:


Check the HTML response header for “X-LiteSpeed-Cache: hit,litemage”, as detailed in “How to check if a page is served from LiteMage Cache” above.

Now to see the same page not being served by LiteMage, simply append “?LITEMAGE_DEBUG=NOCACHE” to the end of any URL. For example:


This will retrieve the current page from the backend, bypassing LiteMage Cache. When checking the HTML response header for the page, “X-LiteSpeed-Cache: hit,litemage” should no longer be listed.

This is useful for checking the accuracy of the currently cached version of a page and also the quickest way to debug LiteMage for specific URLs.
