Enable Page Cache

This feature creates static pages for the dynamic contents instead of exploring the dynamic contents every time the pages requested. It helps so much in decreasing the traffic usage and improving the browsing performance.

Enable Minify

It is the feature responsible for shrinking the size of CSS and HTML files through removing the Line Breaks, comments and spaces which allows them to load faster in the browser

Enable Database Cache

Using this feature the database queries results are saved instead of executing the queries from the database server each time

Enable Object Cache

WordPress has an internal cache for sub-systems such as (Caching API, Object Cache, Transient API) if you are suffering from executing complicated queries in the database we recommend enabling this feature.

Enable Browser Cache

Every time someone visits your site the images and CSS, JS and HTML files are loaded from the server to the browser, by using the browser cache these files will be saved for some time in the visitor’s browser temporary files, and so the visitor will not need to load the same files each time he/she visits your site.

9- Save the changes by pressing “Save all settings

10- From the “General” block, close the “Preview Mode” by pressing “Disable” besides it, with this the plugin is completely activated.

If you are subscribed to one of the CDN services providers you can enable it from the same page, also if you have subscriptions in CloudFlare service you can add your data and enjoy merging the services through this plugin.

In case you were dedicated server or half server client we recommend changing the Cache Method to Opcode XCache
