Presets Section

You can use Presets to easily configure your LiteSpeed Cache plugin. When you apply a Preset, your existing settings are backed up, and then replaced with the chosen preset.

Standard Presets Tab

LSCWP Presets Section Standard Presets Tab

Eventually, we hope to include Presets that have been submitted by members of our community. For now, we have these LiteSpeed Cache Standard Presets that were developed by our team. We've included a selection of presets for every comfort level.

To use a preset, press the Apply Preset button below your chosen preset and answer OK when prompted to continue. Your old settings will be backed up, and the new preset settings will be applied.

Be sure to test your site and make sure everything is working as expected. This is especially important if you've chosen one of the higher-risk presets. If the preset causes a problem, you can revert back to your previous settings via the History section at the bottom of the tab.

History

LSCWP Presets Section Standard Presets Tab History

This area only appears on the Standard Presets tab if you have previously applied a preset. Every time you apply a preset, it is listed in the history, along with a link that will allow you to revert back to the previous settings.

Import / Export Tab

This Presets tab is an exact copy of the one that appears in the Toolbox section. There's a copy here, because it's helpful to have easy access to export, reset, or import your settings when you are experimenting with Presets.

Please see Toolbox > Import/Export Tab for a full explanation of the settings in this tab.
