Cache plugin – install and configure

Guide on how to install and configure the WP Super Cache plugin

A cache plugin generates static pages and improves the site page speed. The cached pages are stored in the memory. When a user makes a request, the process skips the PHP execution and the database requests and delivers the pages from the cache.

WP Super Cache Plugin installation:

  1. Go to WP-Admin area, open the Plugins -> Add new section. Press on the Upload Plugin
