Recommended settings for $5 DigitalOcean VPS?


#1

Hi rtCamp crew,

Thank you for creating the easyengine script. I have found it to be extremely useful for setting up a Nginx+WordPress install quickly.

I’m running a site on a $5 DigitalOcean VPS; what settings do you recommend for W3 Total Cache? Should I be doing anything via the command line (swap, PHP Zend Opcache etc) so my site will load fast and handle heavy traffic?

I would love to have your advice on this. Thanks!

$5 DigitalOcean VPS has 512MB RAM so its better you create swap https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-add-swap-on-ubuntu-12-04
We recommend you to use NGINX fastcgi-cache (–wpfc) for your websites, Its also install w3 total cache and nginx-helper plugins
W3TC SETUP:
Database Cache – Memcache
Object Cache - Memcache
Browser Cache – Disabled
CDN – You can use any CDN. Origin Pull is recommended. Check CDN Setup Guides for details.
Configure nginx-helper plugin: https://rtcamp.com/wordpress-nginx/tutorials/single-site/fastcgi-cache-with-purging/#install-nginx-helper-plugin
