How to speed up your WordPress website with LiteSpeed
Is your WordPress website loading slowly? One cause for such long loading times might be due to your server consuming too much CPU power. Another might be that you have too many images or interactive elements that might also be substantially impacting your website’s speed.
Regardless of the issue, we can offer you a solution that will help improve your WordPress website’s performance.
LiteSpeed Web technology provides special storage that can be used for caching data, which is what you need to look for if you are going to be utilizing a shared hosting plan. This can greatly help optimize your website and not only make it load faster, but also result in better overall user experience. Additionally, you could also get a cloud VPS with WordPress and get substantially more resources and better performance.
How to install LiteSpeed for WordPress
In order to install the caching plugin, there are a few things that you need to consider. First, you need to disable any other caching plugins that you might have installed on your server in order to avoid any conflicts when it comes to the software.
Next, you need to download, install and enable the LiteSpeed cache plugin from your WordPress installation. Alternatively, you can also utilize cPanel or any other control panel software that you have installed on your server.
How to activate LiteSpeed cache via cPanel
Start by logging into your cPanel account by using your username and your password. Then, click on the LiteSpeed Web Cache Manager link. This is also the place from which you can manage your cache settings once you have activated the plugin. From here, go to the bottom of the page and click on the WordPress Cache link.
You will then be presented with a page that will contain a list of all WP installations that are located on your shared hosting account. If you don’t see anything, simply click on the ‘Scan’ button. This will scan for WordPress instances and should also be able to locate yours.
Once the scanning process has been completed, you will be presented with the list of WP installations. Select your WordPress installation and click on the ‘Enable’ button. This will automatically install and enable the LiteSpeed cache plugin, resulting in faster load times.
How to activate the LiteSpeed cache plugin via the WordPress admin panel
You can also enable the plugin from the WP admin panel. To do this, you must first download the plugin, either manually, or through the plugin manager.
Once you have downloaded the plugin, all you have to do is to install and enable it, making your website much faster.
