Hello and welcome to Tech Knol.
In this video I'm gonna show you
how to configure
W3 Total Cache Plugin
Which is the best caching plugin
available for WordPress users
I contacted fredrick towns
the developer of this plugin
asking for the optimal settings
he replied saying
that he never published
any article or video explaining
the optimal settings for the
W3 Total cache plugin
so then I decided to publish
an article and video explaining
the optimal settings for this plguin
yeah here we go.
first we need to install the plugin
from your WordPress dashboard
click on add new
search for W3 Total Cache
look for W3 Total Cache plugin
developed by Fredrick Towns
install and activate the plugin
Here I have already installed the plugin
So after installing the plugin.
you might see
A performance tab
on your WordPress dashboard
as you can see this plugin offers
many services like
page cache, database cache
object cache, browser cache
and CDN services
let's start configuring the plugin.
We will start from General settings.
Click on General settings.
under general settings
enable page cache
and select page cache method to disk enhanced.
if you are using CloudFlare
then you don't need to activate this minify.
for time being
if you want to activate minify enable it.
select the minfy mode to auto
change anything in this minify settings
coming to the database cache
activate the database cache.
and keep the database cache method to disk.
similarly enable object cache
keep the object cache method to disk.
browser cache, just enable it
and the cdn
if you have any cdn services
using for your website
just enable and select the
which you are using currently
you don't need to enable it.
and these are cloudflare settings
if you have any cloudflare service
just enable it
enter your cloudflare username
I mean the account email id.
and the api key
which you can find in cloudflare settings
and the domain for which
you activated cloudflare
