Following on from my previous little post about DB Cache, I’ve been using it since that time and it seems to be faster to me from little old Blighty. I use a USA based host so anything I see has to cross the pond anyway, but in a non-logged-in state, page loading is definitely faster than it was. WP Super Cache is now consigned to the test bed of history. Long live DB Cache, ha, ha.
Seriously, DB Cache is faster than no caching and Super Cache from my viewpoint, and in the end, that’s what counts. And BTW, my permalinks work fine now, Hurrah!
Paradoxically, since this time, my host has had quite a few drop-outs and the web access has been lost intermittently. One time was due to the database server falling over but the rest have been web server issues as far as I can tell. The mail server has worked okay even when the web server has been off, as has the customer service system server! I can’t see how the DB Cache plugin is doing this – it’s just co-incidence, I’m 99% sure. Anyway, I’ve politely told iXWebhosting that their chances are running out and they’ve been very apologetic etc etc.
Watch this space!
