Using

This package implements the following commands:

wp cache

Adds, removes, fetches, and flushes the WP Object Cache object.

wp cache

By default, the WP Object Cache exists in PHP memory for the length of the request (and is emptied at the end). Use a persistent object cache drop-in to persist the object cache between requests.

Read the codex article for more detail.

EXAMPLES

# Set cache.
$ wp cache set my_key my_value my_group 300
Success: Set object 'my_key' in group 'my_group'.

# Get cache.
$ wp cache get my_key my_group
my_value

wp cache add

Adds a value to the object cache.

wp cache add <key> <value> [<group>] [<expiration>]

Errors if a value already exists for the key, which means the value can't be added.

OPTIONS

<key>
	Cache key.

<value>
	Value to add to the key.

[<group>]
	Method for grouping data within the cache which allows the same key to be used across groups.
	---
	default: default
	---

[<expiration>]
	Define how long to keep the value, in seconds. `0` means as long as possible.
	---
	default: 0
	---

EXAMPLES

# Add cache.
$ wp cache add my_key my_group my_value 300
Success: Added object 'my_key' in group 'my_value'.

wp cache decr

Decrements a value in the object cache.

wp cache decr <key> [<offset>] [<group>]

Errors if the value can't be decremented.

OPTIONS

<key>
	Cache key.

[<offset>]
	The amount by which to decrement the item's value.
	---
	default: 1
	---

[<group>]
	Method for grouping data within the cache which allows the same key to be used across groups.
	---
	default: default
	---

EXAMPLES

# Decrease cache value.
$ wp cache decr my_key 2 my_group
48

wp cache delete

Removes a value from the object cache.

wp cache delete <key> [<group>]

Errors if the value can't be deleted.

OPTIONS

<key>
	Cache key.

[<group>]
	Method for grouping data within the cache which allows the same key to be used across groups.
	---
	default: default
	---

EXAMPLES

# Delete cache.
$ wp cache delete my_key my_group
Success: Object deleted.

wp cache flush

Flushes the object cache.

wp cache flush 

For WordPress multisite instances using a persistent object cache, flushing the object cache will typically flush the cache for all sites. Beware of the performance impact when flushing the object cache in production.

Errors if the object cache can't be flushed.

EXAMPLES

# Flush cache.
$ wp cache flush
Success: The cache was flushed.

wp cache get

Gets a value from the object cache.

wp cache get <key> [<group>]

Errors if the value doesn't exist.

OPTIONS

<key>
	Cache key.

[<group>]
	Method for grouping data within the cache which allows the same key to be used across groups.
	---
	default: default
	---

EXAMPLES

# Get cache.
$ wp cache get my_key my_group
my_value

wp cache incr

Increments a value in the object cache.

wp cache incr <key> [<offset>] [<group>]

Errors if the value can't be incremented.

OPTIONS

<key>
	Cache key.

[<offset>]
	The amount by which to increment the item's value.
	---
	default: 1
	---

[<group>]
	Method for grouping data within the cache which allows the same key to be used across groups.
	---
	default: default
	---

EXAMPLES

# Increase cache value.
$ wp cache incr my_key 2 my_group
50

wp cache replace

Replaces a value in the object cache, if the value already exists.

wp cache replace <key> <value> [<group>] [<expiration>]

Errors if the value can't be replaced.

OPTIONS

<key>
	Cache key.

<value>
	Value to replace.

[<group>]
	Method for grouping data within the cache which allows the same key to be used across groups.
	---
	default: default
	---

[<expiration>]
	Define how long to keep the value, in seconds. `0` means as long as possible.
	---
	default: 0
	---

EXAMPLES

# Replace cache.
$ wp cache replace my_key new_value my_group
Success: Replaced object 'my_key' in group 'my_group'.

wp cache set

Sets a value to the object cache, regardless of whether it already exists.

wp cache set <key> <value> [<group>] [<expiration>]

Errors if the value can't be set.

OPTIONS

<key>
	Cache key.

<value>
	Value to set on the key.

[<group>]
	Method for grouping data within the cache which allows the same key to be used across groups.
	---
	default: default
	---

[<expiration>]
	Define how long to keep the value, in seconds. `0` means as long as possible.
	---
	default: 0
	---

EXAMPLES

# Set cache.
$ wp cache set my_key my_value my_group 300
Success: Set object 'my_key' in group 'my_group'.

wp cache type

Attempts to determine which object cache is being used.

wp cache type 

Note that the guesses made by this function are based on the WP_Object_Cache classes that define the 3rd party object cache extension. Changes to those classes could render problems with this function's ability to determine which object cache is being used.

EXAMPLES

# Check cache type.
$ wp cache type
Default

wp transient

Adds, gets, and deletes entries in the WordPress Transient Cache.

wp transient

By default, the transient cache uses the WordPress database to persist values between requests. On a single site installation, values are stored in the wp_options table. On a multisite installation, values are stored in the wp_options or the wp_sitemeta table, depending on use of the --network flag.

When a persistent object cache drop-in is installed (e.g. Redis or Memcached), the transient cache skips the database and simply wraps the WP Object Cache.

EXAMPLES

# Set transient.
$ wp transient set sample_key "test data" 3600
Success: Transient added.

# Get transient.
$ wp transient get sample_key
test data

# Delete transient.
$ wp transient delete sample_key
Success: Transient deleted.

# Delete expired transients.
$ wp transient delete --expired
Success: 12 expired transients deleted from the database.

# Delete all transients.
$ wp transient delete --all
Success: 14 transients deleted from the database.

wp transient delete

Deletes a transient value.

wp transient delete [<key>] [--network] [--all] [--expired]

For a more complete explanation of the transient cache, including the network|site cache, please see docs for wp transient.

OPTIONS

[<key>]
	Key for the transient.

[--network]
	Delete the value of a network|site transient. On single site, this is
	is a specially-named cache key. On multisite, this is a global cache
	(instead of local to the site).

[--all]
	Delete all transients.

[--expired]
	Delete all expired transients.

EXAMPLES

# Delete transient.
$ wp transient delete sample_key
Success: Transient deleted.

# Delete expired transients.
$ wp transient delete --expired
Success: 12 expired transients deleted from the database.

# Delete all transients.
$ wp transient delete --all
Success: 14 transients deleted from the database.

wp transient get

Gets a transient value.

wp transient get <key> [--format=<format>] [--network]

	---
	default: table
	options:

	  - csv
	  - json
	  - yaml
	---

[--network]
	Get the value of a network|site transient. On single site, this is
	is a specially-named cache key. On multisite, this is a global cache
	(instead of local to the site).

EXAMPLES

$ wp transient get random_key
Warning: Transient with key "random_key" is not set.

wp transient set

Sets a transient value.
