Is Nginx Helper needed with easy engine


#1

I am confused about Nginx Helper. I am using easy engine, so do I also need Nginx Helper? What are the benefits of using the two together? Does it conflict with other caching plugins like W3TC?

My Stack

Web Server - Easy Engine on Digital Ocean VPS: 4GB Ram60GB SSD Disk Ubuntu 14.04

Remote Data Base Server - Digital Ocean VPS standard LEMP Stack Install: 4GB Ram60GB SSD Disk Ubuntu 14.04

Caching Plugin WP Rocket


I saw W3TC recommended on here, does it play nice with easy engine?

Scrap WP Rocket.

Scrap all WordPress caching plugins actually.

Go for Nginx Fast-CGI cache, with REDIS, HHVM and Google Pagespeed Module.

Far surpasses anything else.

Thanks mat,

That sounds like a sweet setup. Do you have a demo site I can look at it with that stack running?

@JDdiego

Yep you need nginx helper to purge fastcgi cache, you will see in plugin settings events to purge fastcgi cache.

Yep W3TC is there for object cache.


#5

Can you purge fastcgi from command line?


#6

@JDdiego

yep :slight_smile:

ee clean command

To get a better understanding: I am using nginX + fast CGI. Compared to W3TC is this assumption corretc?

Page Cache --> no, because of Fast CGI
Minify --> would use Autoptimize plugin
Database Cache --> no, because of nginx
Object Cache --> ?do I need it if I use Google CDN??
Browser Cache --> ? not sure, how to achieve this
CDN --> no, would use Google CDN
