I have struggled with this for so long now, and I cannot for the life of me figure out what the problem is. So I turn to you, dear reader. In order to take off some of the load on my database server, I’m using the excellent WP-Cache plugin. The plugin automatically writes static HTML files to the server, serving these to visitors instead of asking the database for a fresh copy every time. The cache is supposed to be purged whenever someone posts a comment.
Except, this doesn’t work for me. I have scoured the web, including the WordPress forums. People seem to have all sorts of problems, some have even created plugins to purge the cache when the admin loads. Am I missing something? Isn’t WP-Cache supposed to purge the static files when content is updated? And if not, shouldn’t there at least be an option to tell it to do so?
