Anyone ever use WP-Rocket? Currently using WP Super Cache and Cloudflare (waiting for DreamHost to fix the Railgun bug), but I’m still in the 60s for desktop on Google PageSpeed even after spending a lot of time Googling recommended settings for WP Super Cache. All the reviews of WP-Rocket seem to be biased affiliate reviewers.
Trying WP Rocket, but I think my problem is that I’m on shared hosting. Waiting to hear back from WP Rocket support but will probably upgrade to a VPS.
What railgun issues are you having? I just realized today recently realized the server we were moved to years ago didn’t have it installed at all…
Someone in support told me that it’s not working because of a bug and that they’re working on a fix. The Cloudflare Chrome extension does not list it as active. Apparently I’m also having an issue where WP Rocket might not be working, either, so I’m waiting for their support to respond. Also have been told that a VPS will not fix my problems. Although the scores are a bit better now than they were.
if you’re on a shared host could you login via SSH and run the following command?
apt list | grep railgun
Does it return anything at all? If not, what’s your server’s host name?
It returned the following:
WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface yet. Use with caution in scripts. [tiller]$
Database cleanup, lazy load, and preloading options all come with WP Rocket, while you would need to install 2 extra plugins if you wanted to use these features with W3 Total Cache. Caching is a key factor in the WordPress optimization guide and WP Rocket is totally worth $39/year
I always Prefer Wp rocket i am using this plugin from 2 years i have not faced any issue
Pretty clean discussion here. Let me add mine.
I generally use Nginx than apache. With Autoptimize plugin, it became easy to speed up the loading time by caching few necessary files like css and scripts. Though I use custom codes for browser cache and header tags which goes under server blog. You can check the final result here at EPF India blog
I used WP-Rocket, but not for a long time. I think that default screen recorder apps working better. For example, i streamed presentation for my essay-grader.com project, and fps was >50. And WP-Rocket <30
i was using Wp cache earlier but i have switched back to wp rocket plugin due to cache issue on my blog.
However, i have discussed this issue on same forum. Never got any satisfactory solution.
