WP Super Cache – You can serve out static HTML pages instead of
- running php
- accessing database
- running more php to form the HTML page
On shared servers you sometimes have trouble getting access to the shared MySQL server when its overloaded. This way you can just rip the pages out.
Notes on Installation:
When I first looked at this I was worried the .htaccess file update would foul up my already existing .htaccess file through which I use candied URL’s. I tested it and it works fine.
