As promised, we’re going to be giving the hosting industry a tool for doing a proper “benchmark” as a means of evaluating your own WordPress capabilities in a standardized way. I’m going to start this post with a few definitions, since there has been a lot of misuse of the words and language in best practices.

It’s no secret that the slower a page loads, the more likely a customer is to leave your site. With the newest enhancements to LiteSpeed Web Server and LiteMage Cache, you can rest easy knowing that all your visitors will experience the fastest load times ever!
LiteSpeed Technologies announces the release of a one-click script that quickly and easily supercharges your DigitalOcean Droplet’s WordPress setup. LiteSpeed’s cache performance delivers significant performance and scalability gains over the DigitalOcean default.
LiteSpeed Announces Load Balancer 2.0 (LiteSpeed ADC) with built-in LiteMage Cluster + PageSpeed OptimizationTuesday, June 28th, 2016
It is a well-known fact that clustering Magento environments is technically complex. Adding Full Page Caching to a Magento cluster is even more difficult. Many people try to use PHP Full Page Caches with redis backends. This is not difficult, however the performance increase is not very good. Alternatively, introducing Varnish as the cache layer offers better performance. However, this creates a single point of failure, SSL termination issues, cache synchronization issues, and load balancing issues.
LiteSpeed Technologies proudly announces the industry’s first single layer, integrated, enterprise scale, application aware Application Delivery Controller (ADC).
LiteMage has many settings which can be fine-tuned to increase store performance. Today, let’s discuss a trick that nearly all stores can benefit from: keeping your public cache warm.
What is a warm cache?
A warm cache already contains your data, in this case objects and pages. When these are freshly stored in your cache, they can be served by LiteSpeed Web Server directly. This prevents PHP from being invoked and hitting the Magento backend, meaning your users can access these objects and pages faster. Thus, it would be ideal to keep your cache warm as long as possible. LiteMage can keep your cache warm indefinitely.
In early January, we blogged about the great feedback that our LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress (LSCWP) was receiving. Since it’s official release on January 20th, LSCWP has continued to receive very positive feedback. Three months and 2,000 downloads later, we thought we’d share some of this feedback and how it has shaped the development of our LSCWP plugin.
Before last years Magento Imagine conference, we announced a benchmark where we stated that LiteMage performed ~17-40x better than Turpentine + Varnish. This led to several people questioning the validity of our benchmark because LiteMage seemed too good to be true. A year later, we decided to revisit this benchmark with the latest version of each software to see where we stand.
In the past, our team brought blazing fast speed to Magento through its LiteMage Cache extension and more recently to WordPress through its LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress (LSCWP). Now it’s time for XenForo to join the list of applications accelerated by LiteSpeed Web Cache with the release of the new LiteSpeed Cache Add-on for XenForo (LSCXF).
We are very excited to announce that our first official release of the LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress has arrived on WordPress’s own plugin directory!
Released last week, LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress (LSCWP) uses the LSCache plugin for WordPress to communicate with LiteSpeed Web Server and LSCache to statically cache your dynamic WordPress pages, greatly reducing page load time and server load. As development continues, we will be adding many more features – such as ESI support similar to what can be seen in LiteMage Cache for Magento.
