    Keycdn cache enabler does not require paid keycdn services. It's just called that because cache enabler is developed by keycdn.

    thank you ! I have read about it and seems that for less concurrent users the very best option for performance need for speed would be microcaching than keycdn is not it ? i mean the key cdn option is easier for noobs like me but worse in question of performance . If i need to handle lot of concurrent users i must go to redis . Is that correct ? :) thank you for this space of knowledge and your mod . it seems superb . i must learn lot of things but i have a huge library here .

    yes microcaching via fastcgi_cache is faster but more problematic and requires a deep understand of both nginx and the web app/script you're using it for i.e. wordpress etc

    In context of Wordpress caching for centmin.sh menu option 22 wordpress auto installer for Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 and newer, you have 3 offered wordpress caching options:
    1. Redis Nginx Level Caching - centmin.sh menu option 22 will auto install redis if not detected if you choose this in centmin.sh menu option 22 setup. Otherwise, need to install redis yourself. Best combined with Autoptimize WP plugin
    2. KeyCDN Cache Enabler for full page static html caching (safest choice for balance of performance and reliability). Best combined with Autoptimize WP plugin
    3. WP Super Cache for full page static html caching. Best combined with Autoptimize WP plugin
    1. redis caching at nginx level can be fastest but needs fine tuning and deep understanding of your web app and it's plugins to get right i.e. woocommerce etc. So can be problematic too. Most caching is are for guest caching only.

    2. keycdn cache enabler wp plugin - better version of wp super cache for full page static caching of wordpress. Least problematic and closest to set and forget with maybe some tuning needed depending on wp plugins and site configuration. Config is for guest caching only.

    And regardless of caching method, having right server(s) hardware and configuration and LEMP stack and system TCP level configurations to handle the traffic is a must otherwise regardless of caching used, it won't scale. So you would want non-OpenVZ based VPS like KVM or dedicated. Choosing OpenVZ VPS will limit your scalability.

    FYI, all caching methods = generally higher memory consumption and sometimes higher cache related cpu consumption. The goal of caching in context of wordpress is usually to lessen the load placed on php/php-fpm as that is the weakest part of any LEMP/LAMP setup in terms of scalability. So sometimes caching isn't necessary faster just scales better in high concurrent traffic environments.

    You can see centmin.sh menu option 22 wordpress installed demo and benchmarks on my Wordpress7 demo site.

    I prefer the Redis option, but I do have a Redis Geek T-shirt and they keep calling me. Maybe I can help though.
