Updating EE Basic installation to WPFC install


#1

Continuing the discussion from W3TC after EE wpfc Install:

I’ve struggled with getting a high-performance blog that would scale well set up on EC2, so finding EasyEngine made my week! Many thanks.

I installed the EE Basic configuration without reading all about caching - my bad I know - but after doing more work on the site than I want to recreate, I realized I need to update my installation from the Basic to the WPFC configuration.

I did: ee site edit example.com [substituting my site name for example.com of course]

and changed the line: “#WPSINGLE BASIC NGINX CONFIGURATION” to “WPSINGLE FAST CGI NGINX CONFIGURATION”

and

include common/php.conf; to include common/wpfc.conf;

I installed the latest W3TC plugin and configured it as instructed in the referenced post and tested that it’s working per the instructions in another post.

Questions:

  • Is there anything else I need to do to optimize caching?

  • What goes in the W3TC field: “Nginx server configuration file path” ?

  • Does it make any difference whether page caching is enabled in W3TC?

Thanks in advance!

That should not required --wpfc (NGINX fastcgi cache) option do page caching at NGINX level.

Leave that field empty.
