This is a story about a WordPress site having all accelerating and caching technologies activated but still not loading properly just a single product in WooCommerce in rush hours when the product is advertised.
There is scarcely a person who does not believe that generating and keeping backups is useful. Indeed that is of fundamental importance especially when you have a website and emails that build up your digital presence.
Here at SuperHosting.BG we back up all hosting accounts and Managed services. But it is essential that our customers also generate and store their own backups. This is absolutely necessary before making any changes to the hosting service.
Do not leave an uninstalled CMS in your hosting account. While you are not working on your website, other users can reach it. But, believe it or not, they might not have good intentions.
We all know how useful statistics might be. It gives quick overview to aggregated information and provides quality data analysis to help us make better, more informed decisions. However, in some cases statistics collection and processing requires more server resources than the initially intended.
Today we would like to share with you our recent experience. This is a real story about two stat modules which were added to the hosting service, but doubled the server resource usage.
In the first part we talked about several settings of the Page Cache module in the W3 Total Cache plugin, which you have to pay attention to. Now we will describe the remaining caching types in this plugin.
As Object Cache and Database Cache will work with default settings, you may only enable them. We will emphasize on Minify as this option has more detailed settings and is often the reason for incorrect site visualization.
Now in the upcoming articles part 1 and 2 we will provide you with more detailed information on W3 Total Cache settings, by means of which you can activate Memcached cashing in your WordPress website. These settings have been tested and proven suitable when using the shared hosting service.
The W3 Total Cache plugin has similar options and settings for data caching. This plugin is also a system for speeding up website loading.
