So it’s finally done! Well mostly done. There are two things left to do. Test the RPM install and hope for the best.
So why’d I make this plugin? The main reason is apache’s cache has two main benefits over a proxy cache such as nginx: it doesn’t require another service and therefore, SSL installation is not effected ie. we don’t need to install the SSL on the proxy service.
Here are some quick benchmarks of the caching plugin on my really crappy wordpress site:
Before MH Cache:
After MH Cache:
As you can see the initial page load time, which is where we will see PHP caching services showing the most benefit, is cut in half.
Also, here are some notes on how to build the RPM:
rpmbuild -ba SPECS/managedhostcache.spec
Now, time to focus on some python scripting so I can move up at my job. #onlypythonappsmatter
