Enabling and using LSCache on WordPress
Updated Thursday January 28th 2021 / Category Web Hosting

What is LSCache?

LSCache is simply a plugin for WordPress that makes managing the LiteSpeed Cache for your website incredibly easy, the plugin is even compatible with most if not all other WordPress plugins such as WooCommerce, Yoast SEO, Wordfence Security, Avada and Contact Form 7.

Before continuing on it’s important to note some information;

  • VentraIP Australia is not responsible and cannot provide support for utilising the LSCache plugin inside of your WordPress installation. These instructions are provided as is and we suggest you consult your developer before undertaking any of these actions. We cannot provide extended support for third-party applications as they fall outside of the scope of the technical support provided by our team.
  • It’s always recommended that you take a backup prior to performing any of these steps – There are no known incompatibilities with the LSCache plugin but it’s always best to play it safe.

How do I enable LSCache?

Given it’s just a plugin it really could not be easier to install LSCache.

  1. On your WordPress installation admin backend go to Plugins >> Add New and search for LiteSpeed Cache.
  2. Click “Install Now” to install it and “Activate” to activate it.

That’s pretty much it! You’ll now have an option on the left-hand side in WordPress for LiteSpeed Cache. Just be aware that LSCache is only available on our new Shared and Reseller hosting.
Our Legacy Economy, Business and WHM Multi servers do not support LSCache.

How do I purge or empty the cache?

Given LSCache is simply a plugin it really could not be easier to purge the cache.

In our WordPress admin backend if we go to the LiteSpeed Cache option and select Manage you’ll find the purging options. Each purge option has a brief description on what it does so we won’t go into detail on that here – It’s all very easy to use.

LSCache has plenty of other options within it for advanced configuration, it’s also a very well written plugin with information explaining what every option does.
