WHY Does FastCGI Cache Option install W3 Total Cache?


#1

EE offers four caching options: No Cache, WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache and FastCGI Cache.

But I’ve discovered whenever I opt for FastCGI Cache, W3 Total Cache is ALWAYS installed. Why is this the case? Is FastCGI dependent on W3TC in any way?


#2

For NGINX fastcgi is used for full page cache and we install w3tc for object and database cache

Refer: https://rtcamp.com/easyengine/docs/commands/site/ee-site-create/standard-wordpress-sites/#wordpress--fastcgi-cache


#3

Then this should probably be named FactCGI Cache + W3TC, as the name is misleading.
