    Centmin Mod has a Wordpress auto installer via centmin.sh menu option 22 which is much improved in Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 offering selection choice at install time for 3 Wordpress caching methods, KeyCDN Cache Enabler, Redis Nginx Level Caching and Super Cache plugins.

    To showcase this, I created my Wordpress7 Demo Blog at https://wordpress7.centminmod.com/ to play with and show case all the site and server optimisation offerings available in Centmin Mod Wordpress auto installer. The Wordpress7 site is now currently using Redis Nginx level caching. Though for most folks for ease of use, I would recommend choosing KeyCDN Cache Enabler method given my current reviews/tests here and results here and here.

    A major part of the showcase, is page speed optimisations and using pagespeed tools like GTMetrix and my favourite Webpagetest.org (a must use tool if you want to measure and improve your page load speeds). I was inspired to re-optimise the Wordpress7 demo blog with what I learnt recently doing KeyCDN Cache Enabler + Autoptimize testing and I am liking the results.

    Also installed my Autoptimize Gzip companion Wordpress plugin which will pre-gzip compress Autoptimized CSS/JS files. Though I just realised, Wordpress7 blog's Centmin Mod Nginx server is built with Brotli compression enabled so Nginx actually served up Brotli compressed static files instead of Gzip. Though for web browsers that don't support Brotli compression, they will get served those pre-gzip compressed files :)

    Yes Wordpress7 is using dual RSA/ECDSA SSL certificates and TLS v1.3 as well :)

    Will see how far I can take pagespeed optimisation :D

    Testing repeat view and caching via Webpagetest scripting to only log metrics for the 2nd access to Wordpress7 index page = instant loading :)
