VPS Review checklist
Last Updated -
- It’s best to use a subdomain since the pagely staging url bypasses our cache layer
- Make sure that the site is properly hitting our cache layer. You can use browser developer tools to check response headers or run this cURL command from a shell.
curl -I http://test.yourdomain .com
You are looking for X-Cache-Status: HIT If you receive a MISS or Bypass you are most likely setting a cookie or phpsession that is causing it to miss. A good place to start is with your plugins by searching for the session_start() function and patching it if possible.
- CDN - By default the CDN should be enabled. You can double check this in your WordPress dashboard > Pagely > PressCDN. You want to make sure this is active prior to running any traffic tests.
- Once you have completed the migration and performance testing the last step is pointing the DNS to our servers.
