Hello! Since I switched to digitalocean, I started to read some guides and tutorials to optimize wordpress for best performance when it comes to caching,but I found so many opinions, I don’t know which to follow. Some say apache, others nginx. Memcache, varnish,nginx reverse proxy with apache, w3 total cache, xcache,APC,self hosted cdn from subdomain,apache’s mod-cache with disk-cache and memcache,etc. There are so many options… I understand that each one of them serves a specific purpose, but I just want to hear some clear opinions. Which is in your opinion the best option for a wordpress site with a lot static content, videos(embeded not self hosted), pictures, with over 5000 visitors/day and the 10$ price plan. Should I go with memcahed option even If I have 1GB memory, or disk cache even If it’s slower? What was the best config for you? From what I understand, nginx is the right choice when it comes to static content, but what should I add with it?Varnish,xcache,memcache?
