Just recently, I was facing a very slow response from my sites and even if I have wp-super cache installed, I feel that my sites are still crawling. Luckily, I stumbled a very good caching plugin that works extremely well with two other caching plugin.
Enter Hyper Cache.
Hyper Cache works like very much the same with wp-super cache except that it doesn’t mess up with your .htaccess. It also provides you real time statistics about the page being cached and the one being missed. So I decided to remove wp-super cache and have Hyper cache installed.
As the name of the plugin says, It caches database queries. If this is combined with hyper cache you will notice the difference in page load times right away. (I used Yslow for firefox)
Use all these three wordpress plugins on your shared hosting and see if it will make your wordpress blog much faster. You can check my diet blog and see how fast it loads.
Have you encountered this already?
This message always comes up whenever I try to update my WordPress core and plugins in the WP dashboard. It’s kinda frustrating actually because three of my most used blogs can’t be updated within wordpress. For the longest time, I didn’t bother to check what needs to be done in order for IT to work but this day is an exemption. With all my plugins getting outdated as well as my wordpress core, it’s time to take action.
If you’re missing that link to automatically upgrade your wordpress plugin, here’s how you can do it.
Not all webhosting are created equal. Not all has Fantastico, not all has one-click installers and most importantly not all bloggers are techie enough to be able to install WordPress manually. For bloggers without much technical knowledge and who are starting to use WordPress as their blogging platform this could be a very problematic and a time consuming task. If you happen to be in this situation, don’t be upset. WordPress has become so easy to install nowadays even without Fantastico or one-click installers.
