How to Install LiteSpeed Cache Plugin on Your WordPress Site

LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress accelerates your WordPress site by having LiteSpeed Web Server cache your pages, speeding up the time taken for each page to load.

Because LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress takes advantage of the LSCache technology built directly into LiteSpeed Web Server, it significantly reduces overhead and is more efficient than the usual PHP-based caching plugins.

It’s easy to get up and running with the FREE LiteSpeed Cache Plugin, which can be installed on any WordPress site in your HostM account:

  1. Sign in to your WordPress admin dashboard.

  2. In the left column, hover over Plugins, then click Installed Plugins.

  3. Your full list of installed plugins should appear. If you find any non-LiteSpeed cache-related plugins in the list, click Deactivate for each of them, to avoid unnecessary complications.

  4. In the left column, under Plugins, click Add New.

  5. In the Search Plugins box, enter LiteSpeed Cache, then wait a couple of seconds.

  6. The list of plugins should refresh, with LiteSpeed Cache being one of the top results. Click the Install Now button for that entry.

  7. Wait for the installation to complete, then click the blue Activate button.

  8. In the left-hand column, go to LiteSpeed Cache > Presets.

  9. Select 'Apply Preset' under Essentials.

  10. (Optional) To start caching specific pages right away, sign out of the WordPress dashboard and visit those pages on your website just as a normal visitor would.

Caching is automatically performed for a page the first time anyone — who may or may not be you — visits it. Once cached, that particular page will load faster for everyone.

Congratulations, your WordPress site is now being accelerated using the LiteSpeed Cache Plugin. Enjoy!
