I'm as lost as a fish on the land and I'm sorry for such stupid questions. BUT HEY, you're an amazing community and I'm really grateful for what you do, please keep it up! This was my initial plan for setting up WordPress, but I stumbled upon CentMin and thought that it is not necessary. Now I'm not sure if the latest beta release 09 has already everything configured for blazing fast WordPress website. It doesn't need to have Varnish I guess. Then I got lost with so much guides (which are old or unorganized too) and modules! My questions are: Is everything configured already when I'm installing wordpress stack from CentMin? Is there pagespeed, gzip compression and so on already or I have to do it by myself? Is it even a good idea to have these? Which of these do I need? Which are already activated and do I have to configure them? Do I need something else? Varnish + ESI FastCGI Pagespeed Zen OpCache Redis / Memcache XtraDB tables My main concern is server response time, which was 2.4 secs with the past LAMP stack on ubuntu 16.04 x64 at DigitalOcean. Thank you once again and have a wonderful, amazing day!
