WP Supercache or Redis

Hi

I have been having issue with my installed WP Supercache plugin. As you know it requires quite a lot on config in wpconfig file and in .htaccess and over the years some parts of it configuration has been deleted etc.

So I have completely uninstalled it and was going to reinstall to ensure it is all working. However, this has made me think that I would rather not have bloated plugin installed and would it be better if I had something like Redis?

If do use Redis, is there a way of not using a plugin? Or maybe just a simple one?

Will it be as good?

Any advice

Hey friend,

Great question. You would still need a plugin to truly benefit from that setup. This is one example:

Well I have gone for a local Redis cache server to start with. maybe a little slower but it is caching like madness so I will see
