    Sometime you can run into the question, maybe my install runs faster with another install option.

    For example, you installed a site with option 22-1 and want to change it to another one for testing if another better fist your needs and performance.

    Normally I would take these steps:
    • Disable current caching and clear cache
    • copy old config, ssl, /home/nginx/domains to safe location (basically, look inside wp_uninstall, whatever has rm make a copy of that)
    • use wp_uninstall script in /root/tools
    • install site with new options and copy the latest text of install for reference (login etc)
    • copy what you need for previous saved /home/nginx/domains *(not old caching plugins/drop-in)
    • adjust wp-config to reflect to old dbase/user (will give some warnings about plugins)
    • Setup new caching method (nginx-redis for example)
    Test, test and test for good results

    But I still have the feeling that I'm missing something / not doing it in the correct way.
    This is a quick post, steps can differ a bit cause I did not log the steps as done before.

    Anybody to confirm the best steps to take?

    those are the general steps to take though for 99% of folks centmin.sh menu option 22 with keycdn cache enabler is the best choice for performance vs gotcha issue balance Wordpress - Differences between Wordpress regular install vs centmin.sh menu option 22 install

    redis nginx level cache option will have gotcha issues depending on what wp plugins you use

    and wp super cache has more potential issues than keycdn cache enabler which is a better version of wp super cache

    and performance difference between the 3 cache options lessens with cloudflare in front of your site too :)

    oh and if on test vps with test sites no need to uninstall/reinstall, just create 3 different subdomain test instances via centmin.sh i.e. test1.domain.com, test2.domain.com, and test3.domain.com each with one of the full page caching options - that way you can test performance side by side for all 3 full page caching methods

    Just asked Cloudflare sales what is the best option with many domains. :)
    A single domain perfect, $200/m to start is also perfect, but it gets into the numbers with more domains.
