Hello there,

I believe that WPRocket is a great choice in case you are looking for a paid solution. I have a few websites that use that plugin and I am very happy with the page speed.

As a free solution, I tend to use the WP Super Cache plugin. It also offers some great improvements and reduces the overall load on the server itself.

Hope that this helps!

You want both APC + Varnish. <br> <br>Alternative PHP Cache (APC) is an opcode cache for PHP. Its goal is to provide a framework for caching and optimizing PHP intermediate code. Varnish Cache, on the other hand, is a web application accelerator; also known as a caching HTTP reverse proxy.

Thanks… So APC uninstall and install Varnish, otherwise i have 2 cache applications running
