How to Activate Caching on the Staging Site

WP STAGING disables the cache on the staging site as the default option to ensure that it does not interfere with the cloned site and make sure that you can log in to the staging site immediately after cloning.

For development purposes, it’s not recommended to have a caching plugin like WP Super Cache, or WP Rocket activated at all on a development site.

Update and develop your site and when you are done, activate the cache! This is usually the correct order to ensure that you do not run into any caching issues while working on your website.

You can activate the cache by either going into your caching plugin settings or changing the constant of WP_CACHE to true in the file wp-config.php, which you find at the root of your website.

Edit the line that says:

define(‘WP_CACHE’, false);

and change it to

define(‘WP_CACHE’, true);

You can modify this file using FTP or a file manager plugin from within the WordPress admin page.
