Cache is Purging Often Despite TTL Settings

Cache is getting purged quite often, inconsistent with the TTL settings.

Some actions may unintentionally trigger a purge.

  1. Settings > Purge: Have you enabled All pages, and you post frequently?
  2. Settings > Advanced: Have you manually added any hooks to Purge All Hooks?
  3. Do you have any plugins that are automatically enabled or disabled when a page loads?

Enable Debug Log

Enable the Debug Log, chosing Admin IP only, add your IP under Admin IPs, and set Debug Level to Advanced.

Purge and Rebuild a Page's Cache

Purge all cache, access any page twice, make sure the cache header is showing hit, then do something that is suspected to trigger the purge.

In this example, this action would be edit a WooCommerce product's inventory, since you have noticed that it appears to purge irrelevant pages as well.

Check the Debug Log

Now check the debug log:

The above logs are generated from the following set of actions: visit homepage, edit product, visit home page again.

Find the Tags

Since LiteSpeed Cache is a tag-based caching system, let's find all of the tag(s).

X-LiteSpeed-Tag: 87f1_URL.6666cd76f96956469e7be39d750cc7d9,87f1_F,87f1_Po.24,87f1_PGS,87f1_
X-LiteSpeed-Tag: 87f1_tag_priv,public:87f1_ESI,public:87f1_ESI.admin-bar,public:87f1_
X-LiteSpeed-Tag: 87f1_URL.6666cd76f96956469e7be39d750cc7d9,87f1_F,87f1_Po.24,87f1_PGS,87f1_

And the purge action is also called by tag, so now let's find the purge tag.

X-LiteSpeed-Purge: public,87f1_WC_T.18
X-LiteSpeed-Purge: public,87f1_WC_T.18,87f1_Po.37,87f1_URL.c5058f4b6fbb3ed974efbe319a954e61,87f1_W.recent-posts-2,87f1_T.2,87f1_T.9,87f1_T.18,87f1_A.1,87f1_PT.product,87f1_F,87f1_H,87f1_PGS,87f1_PGSRP,87f1_D.201806
X-LiteSpeed-Purge: public,87f1_WC_T.18,87f1_Po.37,87f1_URL.c5058f4b6fbb3ed974efbe319a954e61,87f1_W.recent-posts-2,87f1_T.2,87f1_T.9,87f1_T.18,87f1_A.1,87f1_PT.product,87f1_F,87f1_H,87f1_PGS,87f1_PGSRP,87f1_D.201806,87f1_REST
X-LiteSpeed-Purge: public,stale,87f1_WC_T.18,87f1_Po.37,87f1_URL.c5058f4b6fbb3ed974efbe319a954e61,87f1_W.recent-posts-2,87f1_T.2,87f1_T.9,87f1_T.18,87f1_A.1,87f1_PT.product,87f1_F,87f1_H,87f1_PGS,87f1_PGSRP,87f1_D.201806,87f1_REST,87f1_WC_T.9
X-LiteSpeed-Purge: public,stale,87f1_WC_T.18,87f1_Po.37,87f1_URL.c5058f4b6fbb3ed974efbe319a954e61,87f1_W.recent-posts-2,87f1_T.2,87f1_T.9,87f1_T.18,87f1_A.1,87f1_PT.product,87f1_F,87f1_H,87f1_PGS,87f1_PGSRP,87f1_D.201806,87f1_REST,87f1_WC_T.9

Basically, if the tag(s) in X-LiteSpeed-Purge is/are contained in the X-LiteSpeed-Tag of other pages, then those other pages will be purged during the action.

Now let's check the above tags. We will see:

87f1_F and 87f1_PGS are contained by the homepage, so it gets purged.

87f1 is the prefix. Then what do F and PGS mean? You can see a list of tag classes in the code. Check lines 15-33.

F and PGS are triggered by the setting Auto Purge Rules For Publish/Update. If you do not want the Front page or Pages to be purged every time you update a WooCommerce item, then you need to uncheck those options.

Note: If you see the PGSRP tag, that is for the Recent Posts Widget. You can uncheck the all pages with Recent Posts Widget setting in the auto purge rules, to keep it from purging every page on your site. If you still want to keep the widget itself updated, enable ESI for the site, enable ESI for the Recent Posts Widget, and set it to Public. That will keep the widget updated for new posts, but won't require every page it is on to be purged.
