    Hey there!

    I have 2 requests:
    -Can I somehow setup a wordpress website on a new server, make sure everything works and later bind it to an URL and setup ssl ? As I'd like to keep my original server up until I'm sure everything is working 100%. (and I know the URL has to be forwarded to the right IP for the SSL verification to work correctly)

    -If Redis is a no-go because of compatibility issues with my membership plugin, what would be second best choice for very high traffic ? (100k a day)

    Thank you ! <3

    Nginx 1.15.x
    MariaDB 5.5/10.x
    as long as you don't update domain DNS when setting up non-https wordpress first that should work

    then use guide for existing Centmin Mod Nginx HTTP users wishing to migrate from HTTP to HTTPS at Migrating Existing Nginx Vhost From HTTP to HTTP/2 based HTTPS With Letsencrypt SSL Certificates
