What plugins do you use for WP cache & optimization?

Hello everyone,

I bought a webhosting package from NetCup few days ago. I found they use Apache as server and Nginx as proxy.

I only have experience on Litespeed or OpenLiteSpeed, LSCache is just perfect on Litespeed server. But on Apache server I have no idea.

There are so many cache & optimization plugins to choose. What plugins do you choose for WordPress optimization?

Thanks!

  • Best optimization plugin is not to use Wordpress and Apache in the first place, but static generated content and nginx.

    I'm more of a LAMP (yeah, web 1.0) guy because I can't debug 200 nginx configs concatted together quite as easily as Debian's Apache layout. I still prefer to avoid WordPress.

    WordPress: Perhaps any caching system would be better than none

    W3 Total Cache has worked for me in the past, same with WP fastest cache

    And don't forget a CDN like CloudFlare for edge static asset caching

    For dynamic content, I like TextPattern. For something simple, I'd suggest https://www.htmly.com/ or https://ghost.org/

    Theme: GeneratePress or Astra or Neve.
    Caching: W3 Total Cache (best option for a VPS) or WP Fastest Cache (for Shared)
    Code Optimization: Autoptimize or FVM or Cloudflare (Free)
    Database Optimizatiom: WP-Optimize (not needed on a brand new WordPress site)
    CDN: Cloudflare (Free) or Statically (Free, New) or BunnyCDN (paid)

    Wp fastest cache + Cloudflare will do a great job for us :) check all options which are available in wp fastest cache free version settings
    Add site in cloudflare
    Enable optimisation for html,css,js one by one after that check the website properly if its working fine simply on the rocket loader and boommm check the website speed it will be 2x more then before
    However for better understanding the speed concept use gtmatrix waterflow test it will tells u the proper game which u need to play

    Get rid of any plugins you don't need, and optimise the theme is the best way. If after all that you need caching, use varnish/nginx if possible.

    More plugins = more to do. Wordpress isn't that's slow if set up correctly - but too many people use a separate plugin for every little bit of functionality on the site.
