    I have an out of the box Centminmod installation with WordPress.

    The only changes I have made is to update the PHP version and NGINX.

    I am running Cloudflare and caching with the WP Rocket plugin.

    Webtest page gives me these results.......

    looks ok, but TTFB is to high ~ 0.712s, mb your hosting provider not so good for that, other service (pingdom, gtmetrix) get same high TTFB....
    with my hosting (centmin 22 menu, nginx cache level) i have TTFB something like 150-200ms

    Nice site! You could check
    • Remove unnecessary assets with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-asset-clean-up/ or WP Gonzales
    • Verify your WP Rocket settings, there seems to be a cache bust issue on your site (could be false-negative)?
    • Try to disable Cloudflare Rocket Loader, see if it helps with your site speed

    I’ve disabled Rocket Loader and purged all the caches.

    What is a cache bust issue?

    Yesterday some cache files were unreachable, but since I don't see that problem anymore your cache purge seems to have solved the issue. Did you sync your WP Rocket and Cloudflare? So WP Rocket will purge Cloudflare cache, if needed?

    Your TTFB seems to have improved now? I would still remove at least these red assets from trying to be served:

    I made the changes that were recommended, disabled Rocket Loader and installed the plugin.
    Using that plugin I have stopped loading various scripts on the front page and blog posts page.

    Install and activate it, then:

    go to 3:55

    Do you see those red assets on your home page, for example? I would disable them everywhere, unless some part of your site uses them.
