WP Super Cache Not Working After Server Move

I moved the server I host this site on recently, and it got noticeably slower (despite better hardware), it turned out my caching plugin (WP Super Cache) had stopped working, which caused a double performance hit (no caching & the failing script).

My site used to be stored in /home2 but now it’s in /home , but WP Super Cache had hardcoded this in a file it produces (wp-content/advanced-cache.php).

You can either:

  • edit lines 8 & 9 of advanced-cache.php with the new path (for example I changed /home2 to /home)
  • deactivate / reactivate the plugin which seems to cause these files to be regenerated

My WordPress site is now blistering fast again!

If you’re not using WP Super Cache on your WordPress site, shame on you, oh and get it here – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-super-cache/

Oh, Look… I’ve Got a Blog!

Well I set this up in a hurry when I was meant to be doing something else, the blogging engine is powered by WordPress, with Sandbox (converted to HTML5) used as the base. The networks page is a plugin called LifeStream that basically brings in all your social feeds to WordPress!

Still need to tweak the layout of the comments and a few other things here and there, but for now this will do!
