    Which plug-in is recommended? I thought I read people were moving to WP-FFPC but maybe that isn't the case.

    Server:

    CentOS 6
    nginx 1.7.p
    PHP 5.6.4
    MariaDB 10.0.15
    ZendOpcache
    Memcache

    WP Super Cache better as less effort to get up and running and less chance of issues :)

    I have had really great success with WP-FFPC. Yes, it's a bit of work to get it working properly but once it gets going - wow, what a difference! Caching in the memory is always best anyway and WPSC is a awesome plugin but it also adds extra not needed weight and WP FFPC is designed for Nginx based systems where WPSC is designed for whatever system.

    Yeah, but that can be adjusted though if needed right?

    That's a bummer but I've had really good success with it as an alternative to a caching plugin but I don't have any long URLs so I'm safe in that aspect lol

    So, maybe I am doing this wrong, but is the work in getting memcached installed? Matt got that installed on my server and the plug-in seems to work without issue (except for when I save settings, I have to click save a dozen times until it rewrites the advanced-cache.php file. Very weird.

    I still and highly recommend WP Super Cache.
    I managed two big WP sites (first has 5K to 6K and the second has 2k to 5k visitors every seconds based on Google Analytics real time) that excludes those user's that has ad block extension installed :).
    And the cpu load is very small. Takes 4-10% only.
