Until now if you wanted to use caching with GD we recommended and only provided help if you used either GD Booster or WP Super Cache + Autoptimize. There have been some changes in GD this year which should making caching work better with more caching options.
On the small test site i was using W3TC did not show much if any improvements over the currently supported options but where both of the new options shine is with their database and object caching which will improve large sites or slow servers much more.
I tested all 4 options and though i had some problems with WP Rocket’s minifications i was able to disable that section and use Autoptimize along side it, this combination of WP Rocket and Autoptimize showed the most consistently fast results, most other could match the times on some load tests but this combination was the most consistently fast.
So… Although both of these options are not officially supported yet i would ask that if anyone wishes to test them and give feedback we can create documentation of the best recommended settings and add them to our supported list 🙂
For W3TC i found just enabling all the default settings in general worked best.
For WP Rocket, again i enabled most general settings but i had problems getting their minification to work without problems so i used Autoptimize with our recommended settings for GD.

I was using Autopmize alone and with whoop , I think that was the fastest results for me.The biggest problems from autopmize I faced and had to change it was mixed content SSL error. The caching and minifications it created resulted in non SSL links.October 9, 2017 at 2:30 pm #399641
That is strange, are your WP General settings for your site as https?

I am using WP Fastest Cache and almost bought the Pro version, glad I read this post, so you are saying for a Pro version caching plugin, WP Rocket will be acceptable. I have not seen any particular problems with WP Fastest Cache and geodirectory but I am just getting started with it and have not run extensive search/map queries, where is the problems probably are, am I correct? So WP Fastest Cache, need to get rid of it?October 10, 2017 at 3:15 pm #399845
I have not tested that one, it might work ok, but as with any of these products it might cause some problems.

Just a quick note: Ive installed WP Rocket, and my server is running Varnish. Been running for a little over 10 days with no issues to report. Running WordPress 4.8.2, with current Divi themeOctober 16, 2017 at 9:21 pm #400986

Are you getting better results with WP Rocket and Autoptimize than WP Super Cache and Autoptimize?October 17, 2017 at 12:18 pm #401119
@Joy, I would not say i’m getting better speeds, the speeds are very similar but i’m getting more consistently low speeds.October 29, 2017 at 8:13 pm #403137

I have a question. Does the caching have to do with a single database vs what would happen if there were several databases?
Thus a search to Place or CPT could call to smaller Databases? Such as “Northern” or “Electrical” and since the db would be small there would be less to cache? Please forgive me if am topic crashing. Just curious.
WP (Multiple Databases, Same Users
You can use the same userbase with all your blogs on the same domain, by defining the CUSTOM_USER_TABLE and optionally the CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE constants to point to the same wp_your_blog_users and wp_your_blog_usermeta tables. See Editing wp-config.php/Custom User and Usermeta Tables.October 30, 2017 at 1:51 pm #403239
Different caching works in different ways, you would need to check with the author.

So if u had to rate them WP Rocket + Autoptimize would be first then WP Super Cache and last GD Booster ?November 3, 2017 at 8:19 am #403949
The problem is its not that simple, different servers and even different sites react better to different solutions, i run GDB on one site and WP Rocket + Autoptimize on another because that is what seems to work best for those sites.
