Transcript

  • 1. Setting Up W3 Total Cache The Correct Way
  • 2. Start Here
  • 3. Page Cache • Page cache is one of the most important features of this plugin. Enable it. • Set this to Disk: Enhanced for most web hosting servers.
  • 4. Minify • Minify is an excellent way to boost your website’s speed. • But since you got Cloudflare installed, leave this disabled.
  • 5. Database Cache • Database caching plays a more important role in boosting your website’s speed when you are using a VPS or dedicated server. • Set Database Cache Method to Disk.
  • 6. Object Cache • If you are hosting your website on a dedicated server or VPS, enable this. • If you are on a normal or shared hosting server, I recommend leaving this unchecked.
  • 7. Browser Cache • This will tremendously speed your website’s load time for returning visitors. • 100% enable this.
  • 8. CDN • You will be using Cloudflare’s CDN which will be covered in the later slides. • Leave this disable.
  • 9. Reverse Proxy • Reverse Proxy is a service similar to a CDN where they cache a copy of your site pages and serve it to your visitors from the cloud. • Leave this disable & use Cloudflare instead as their service is more suited for Wordpress websites.
  • 10. Network Performance & Security • A must-have for a 1 second website. • Find your Cloudflare API key here.
  • 11. Other Not-so-important Settings Monitoring – New Relic helps you monitor how your website is doing in actionable and easy-to-understand data. Miscellaneous – You can enter in your Google Page Speed API key to be disabled in your W3 Total Cache dashboard. Debug – “Do not touch” if unsure. Import/Export Settings – You can easily export your W3 Total Cache settings from 1 website and import the settings into another website with this.
  • 12. Setting Up Advanced W3 Total Cache Settings
  • 13. Advanced Settings: Start Here
  • 14. Advanced Page Cache • I like to leave “Don’t cache pages for following user roles: Administrator” because whenever I make any changes, I don’t have to clear cache to view the change.
  • 15. Advanced Page Cache • Cache preloading is a pretty awesome feature in W3C. It lets you set a time when the cached pages will be built. • What this does is it has the plugin pre-make these cached pages on a regular basis so that not even the first visitor has to wait on a slow un- cached page. • Don’t forget to enter your sitemap URL into the sitemap box.
  • 16. Advanced Page Cache Purge Policy & Advanced Tab • Leave them as default
  • 17. Advanced Minify • There won’t be much settings to change for Advanced Minify because you will leave most of the minify work to Cloudflare.
  • 18. Advanced Minify
  • 19. Advanced Browser Cache
  • 20. Advanced Browser Cache
  • 21. Advanced Browser Cache
  • 22. Advanced Browser Cache
  • 23. User Agent Groups • User agents means that you can set things to work differently for a visitor using a web browser like Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc compared to a visitor using a mobile browser on an iPad or iPhone. • If you are getting a lot of traffic from mobiles and tablets, you can segment your visitors and show them different website themes to suit their device.
  • 24. Referrer Groups • Almost similar to user agent groups. Referrer groups segment users by referrers instead of devices. • If you want to show a different website to people coming from Google, you can do that with referrer groups. • This can be used to split tests your different traffic sources by creating different landing pages for each of these sources.
  • 25. Advanced CDN • No options to change here as your CDN is already configured to Cloudflare.
  • 26. Now…click Save all settings and you’re done! Your website is now more optimized with W3 Total Cache
  • 27.
