I’m running wordpress website by using Woocommerce. Currently,

I’m using Redis + Wprocket cache plugin. but i dont know when i use redis with wp rocekt, i have to use nginx helper plugin together.

Hello,

if you use wp-rocket, you should not need to keep redis, wp-rocket do not use redis, and it’s not the best idea to use two cache system at the same time. nginx-helper provide the ability to purge redis-cache, but if you remove redis, you can also remove it.

There is rocket-nginx to optimize wp-rocket cache with Nginx.

Hi, Thanks for answering.

I use Wp rocket and Redis together because I have read in this forum before that it is okay to use them together because the cache where wp rocket and redis operate do not overlap. But would it be better to not use Redis?

Thank you.

With EasyEngine, Redis do a full-page cache, and WP-Rocket do the same. So I’m not sure it’s a good idea to use both of them at the same time.
