What Do People Say About LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress

Frequently Asked Questions

 Is the LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress free?

Yes, LSCWP will always be free and open source. That said, a LiteSpeed server is required, and there are fees associated with some LiteSpeed server editions.

 What server software is required for this plugin?

A LiteSpeed server is required in order to use the caching features of this plugin.

  1. LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise with LSCache Module (v5.0.10+)
  2. OpenLiteSpeed (v1.4.17+)
  3. LiteSpeed WebADC (v2.0+)

Any single server or cluster that includes one of the LiteSpeed products listed above will work.

 What is the difference between the LSCache Module for LSWS (requires a license) and the LSCache Plugin for WordPress (free)?

The LSCache Module is built into your licensed copy of LiteSpeed Web Server. When it comes to caching dynamic content, the LSCache Module does all of the work.

The LSCache Plugin for WordPress is simply an interface. It allows WordPress to instruct the server Module on what to cache, how long to cache it, and when to purge. And it allows the site owner to manage and configure the Module. Without the Module, the Plugin could not function.

A licensed LSCache Module is required in order to use the free LSCache Plugin.

 Does this plugin work in a clustered environment?

The cache entries are stored at the LiteSpeed server level. The simplest solution is to use LiteSpeed WebADC, as the cache entries will be stored at that level.

If using another load balancer, the cache entries will only be stored at the backend nodes, not at the load balancer.

The purges will also not be synchronized across the nodes, so this is not recommended.

If a customized solution is required, please contact LiteSpeed Technologies at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

NOTICE: The rewrite rules created by this plugin must be copied to the Load Balancer.

 Does LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress work with OpenLiteSpeed?

Yes it can work well with OpenLiteSpeed, although some features (such as ESI) may not be supported. Any setting changes that require modifying the .htaccess file will require a server restart.

 Is WooCommerce supported?

In short, yes. However, for some woocommerce themes, the cart may not be updated correctly. Please see this blog post for a quick tutorial on how to detect this problem and fix it if necessary.

 Are my images optimized?

Images are not optimized automatically, but if you'd like to have it done we provide an Image-Optimization function. Find it at LiteSpeed Cache > Image Optimization.

 Does LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress have a crawler?

Yes. The crawler must be enabled by your hosting provider. Once enabled, the crawler can be configured to traverse your site on a regular basis, and re-cache any pages that have expired from cache. Visitors are far less likely to encounter uncached content on a well-crawled site. Pages load fast and deliver a positive user experience.

 How to Install LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress?

LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress works right out of the box with default settings that are appropriate for most sites. Please refer to the steps from our How to Install LSCWP page.

 How can I check if LiteSpeed Cache is enabled?

You can check if LiteSpeed Cache (LSCache) is enabled by using the browser's developer tools. Check out our guide Check if LiteSpeed Cache is Enabled for a step-by-step tutorial.
