LiteSpeed Cache For WordPress

LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress (LSCWP) is a PHP-based plugin that provides page caching and other site optimization features, which deliver superior performance to your WordPress site.

Because LSCache (LiteSpeed's cache module) is built directly into the server, overhead is significantly reduced and caching can be done more efficiently than with other PHP-based caches.

This wiki will guide you through the all steps needed to install and set up LSCWP.

If you are a System Administrator for a shared hosting server and are currently using WHM/cPanel, you may find the LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress management section within the LiteSpeed WHM plugin to be a big time saver. It allows you to enable cache for all of your WordPress installations with one-click.

Many of the optimization features in our WordPress plugin may be used by anyone, using any web server (LiteSpeed, Apache, NGiNX, etc).

The caching features, however, require OpenLiteSpeed, commercial LiteSpeed products such as LiteSpeed Web Server, or LiteSpeed-powered hosting.
