How to Install, Activate and Configure, WP Super Cache Plugin to Optimize your WordPress Blog. A very fast caching engine for WordPress that produces static html files.
by: Revengsky Joseph D. Reyes (a.k.a. rjdreyes – jcyberinux.com)
This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.
(Note : By doing this, I expected you have an internet connection and your own webhost or webserver on your localhost)
1. Login to your WordPress Administrator Account, to your Dashboard, go to Plugins then click Add New.
2. Click on Search, then type your desire plugins name, keyword, tag or author. Select Author then type the keyword or term wp super cache, then click Search Plugins, it will show you relevant or exact search results.
3. Find the WP Super Cache (I think it will be the first result), then click Install Now, to install the chosen plugin. The dialog prompt ask you to confirm to install the plugin, then click OK, to install it.
4. Then message will follow, installing plugin, then message that the plugin is successfully installed. Then you can click on Return to Plugin Installer to install another plugin or Activate the plugin you currently installed. You can click Installed Plugins and find WP Super Cache to activate it.
ANOTHER METHOD: USING CPANEL
6. After you successfully download the zip file, go to your Cpanel Account, then File Manager, then browse to your wordpress folder then to the plugins folder. (As for example : wordpress/wp-content/plugins).
7. From there, upload the zip file, extract the file(wp-super-cache.1.0.zip), after the extraction, delete the zip file then head back to your WordPress account, then go to Plugins then click Installed Plugins. Find WP Super Cache to activate it.
8. After the activation, on the Plugins, you will see the message “WP Super Cache is disabled”. Then next to it, is the link to go forth on the WP Super Cache Admin Page. Click the link “plugin admin page” to enable caching. Or you can head forth to Settings, then click WP Super Cache.
9. At the Easy Tab, click the Caching On (Recommended) to enable it. Then click Update Status, to save the settings. Test Cache if its working, click it.
10. Go to Advanced Tab, make the following Recommended Settings.
After the changes, click Update Status to save the settings.
