I’m having a lot of problems with the speed of my site. (I’m super tech-challenged, so there’s probably some things I should be doing that I’m not!) I’ve just been fumbling along… I found a lot of suggestions to use WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache… I tried, but they both actually seemed to SLOW the site down However, I’ve read a lot of different tutorials suggesting different settings - so perhaps I’m not setting it right? Recently, I added WP Widget Cache, which is the first thing that seems to help a little.
Some people have suggested that the problem is Dreamhost? I know several people who have Wordpress sites on different servers who use either WP Super or W3 Total and their sites are a lot faster than mine. (But that could just because I’m doing something wrong!)
I’d REALLY, REALLY appreciate it if someone could 1) tell me which caching plugin I should use (or if there’s another option) and 2) what settings I should use to optimize use with Dreamhost. (Any other suggestions on improving site speed would be GREATLY appreciated!)
Thank you so, so much!
