Hi, I’m very interested in starting with EasyEngine on a Vultr server, just got some questions about the setup I should use. I use WordPress a lot, but I know little about how servers or how cache works, so when I get so many options I have no idea what to pick.
My setup will be WordPress Multisite on PHP7 with Divi theme for all sites, iThemes Security Pro (Do I need a Firewall plugin also?), BackupBuddy and whatever cache you guys recommend that works with the setup.
About Cache: There must be one that is just better than the others. I see I can setup EasyEngine with WP Super Cache, W3TC, Nginx or Redis cache… Which one would you recommend for a multisite WP? If I choose WP Super Cache for example, that means the server will be setup for that and I can’t change the cache plugin? I was planning on using WP Rocket or even the new Hummingbird from WPMUDEV. Also, would Redis Cache/Nginx cache be replacements for the W3TC/WP Super cache or I can combine Redis Cache with another caching plugin?
About PHP7 vs HHVM /Pagespeed Which one would you recommend here? Which one is faster/more secure? I think this has some relation with cache also.
About Security I’ll probably be using iThemes Security Pro and BackupBuddy for all sites in the multisite, should I also use a firewall plugin like Ninja FireWall/Simple Security Firewall or others?
