Should I use the X caching plugin on FlyWP?

You’re using FlyWP and everything is working great. Cool! Now, you may be wondering which plugin you should use. If you have questions like

Should I be using any other cache plugins like WP Rocket and LiteSpeed Cache along with FlyWP and Redis Object Cache plugins for my WordPress site?

Or,

If I’m using any other cache plugins like WP Rocket and LiteSpeed Cache, can I delete the FlyWP and Redis Object Cache plugins for my WordPress site?

Or

Should I use X caching plugin on my website on FlyWP?

You can disable the caching from within the FlyWP dashboard and the FlyWP plugin. However, we would not recommend it. The FlyWP plugin is essential to communicate from the FlyWP platform to your website. It also works with magic login, the email setup for WordPress-related emails, and more. In addition, the FlyWP plugin is required for many things as we rely on it to communicate to the WordPress site via REST API and offer features such as cache clearing, OPcache management, and email configuration. In the future, we will add more features to make your/our lives easier.


We recommend using the Redis plugin + NGINX FastCGI caching with the FlyWP Helper plugin. This combination maximizes the speed, efficiency of server resources, and performs very well on FlyWP provisioned sites. WP Rocket does not offer in-plugin support for Redis. To leverage the capabilities of Redis, you would need to use the Redis plugin. (Redis is enabled by default on all FlyWP provisioned servers)
