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.
If you haven’t already set up the recommended caching plugin from your new server, then LSCache is our recommendation unless presided otherwise, but before continuing, it’s important to note some information;
- VentraIP Australia is not responsible and cannot support utilising the LSCache plugin inside your WordPress installation. These instructions are provided as-is, and we suggest you consult your developer before undertaking any of these actions. We cannot offer extended support for third-party applications as they fall outside the scope of our team’s technical support.
- We recommend using a managed WordPress hosting service or hosting that provides additional support for WordPress websites. It will give different options of support should there be any additional support required.
- It’s always recommended that you take a backup before 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.
- On your WordPress installation admin backend, go to Plugins >> Add New and search for LiteSpeed Cache.
- 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 website hosting plans 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 of what it does so that we won’t detail that here – It’s all straightforward 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.
