Speed Up Your Azure hosted WordPress site with Caching Plugin

A year ago, we had unsuccessfully tested a number of caching plugins on this Azure hosted WordPress blog. Because of ongoing frustrations with slow page loading speed, we tried installing WP Super Cache again – this time to a resounding YES! IT WORKS! While more work is still needed, the page load speed has dropped from 5.8 sec to 3.0 sec with the basic plugin install.

The caching plugin creates cached php files of website pages

WP Super Cache Setup – Quick and Easy!

  • Install the plugin > Easy tab > Caching On That’s all that’s needed to get started!
  • Check that the plugin is working > Test Cache The green text means go!
