Welcome to another installment of WordPress Wednesday!
Today’s topic is: Using LSCache with the WordPress CLI
WP-CLI is the command-line interface for WordPress. It allows you to perform many actions that would normally require you to visit the WordPress Dashboard in a browser. LiteSpeed’s WP-CLI commands that allow you to manage your cache simply from the command line, and with version 3.0 of our plugin, we have expanded these options considerably.
This is just a taste of the commands available. For the full list, including CLI commands for QUIC Cloud services and debugging purposes, please see our documentation.
