Improving Performance of Buddypress: Object Caching
WordPress object caching is currently by far the most reliable way to improve the performance of BuddyPress. With object caching enabled you should see up to a 3x reduction in database queries and load on your server.
You will then need to add an object-cache.php file to /wp-content/ for caching to become persistent.
There are different ways of caching:
- A development file-based object cache script modified to work for WPMU by lead WPMU developer, Donncha O Caoimh
- An object cache script optimized for eAccelerator maintained by Murmatron. You will need to install eAccelerator first before trying this version.
