Free Page Cache for OC 2.X

Free Page Cache for OC 2.X
A fast, free, open source page level cache for OpenCart versions 2.X

Note: Be sure to download the correct zip file. One is for versions 2.0.x through 2.2.x of opencart, the other is for versions 2.3+ of opencart.

Note: We do not offer support for this module. You are on your own to test, and on your own with errors.

Note: NOT FOR OPENCART V1.5. See our other page cache mod for Opencart 1.5.X.

Serves cached pages to browsers when:

  • The end user is not logged in
  • Nothing is in the cart or wishlist
  • The request is a GET, and not a POST, HEAD, etc
  • The requested url doesn't match any of the patterns in the skip_urls setting


Includes an admin panel that can:

  • Enable or disable the cache
  • Purge either expired, or all, cached files
  • Shows basic statistics about the cache


New in Version 1.1.2

  • Supports caching responses for desktop, mobile & tablet separately. See cachebydevice setting, off by default.


Requirements

  • PHP 5.4 or better
  • Opencart 2.X


Caveats

  • Beta quality. Testing performed mostly in an apache mod_php environment with PHP5.4.
  • Make a backup copy of your main index.php file before enabling the cache. The enable/disable functions make modifications to your index.php file.
  • May cache pages you don't want to be cached. See the documentation for the skip_urls setting
  • Very limited support. We are a sign shop, and don't have the resources to help with most questions or issues


Demo

  • See demo site here: http://octurbo.com/pcache2/. Load a page twice (to make sure it's cached first), then do a view source, and you'll see an html comment at the bottom. This is running on a tiny 512MB digitalocean VPS, with 4 other opencart installs, but it's still relatively fast.
  • A modified version of this (on OC 1.5.x) is running on our production site, here: BudgetNeon.com
  • Sorry, no demo of the admin panel


Note: You'll have an easier time with installation if you install this quick fix for the opencart V2.x installer:
