Today’s internet is all about speed and performance. There are a TON of plugin options for WordPress that will help with the loading time of your websites pages. Awhile ago, we ran a test the included 4 of the major players in the WordPress caching arena; Cache Enabler, WP Super Cache, WP Rocket and WP Total Cache. In our testing, Cache Enabler was the winner by a very close WP Rocket. However, Cache Enabler is FREE where WP Rocket is paid. So I would rather choose a FREE plugin that can do just as good, if not better, then a paid plugin can do. We wanted to run a test on how well Cache Enabler stacked up to Redis Object Caching. Redis is a persistent, in-memory data structure object caching system used to cache database queries and the front-end of your blog/site and stores the information in RAM similar to what Varnish does. Cache Enabler is strictly a front-end caching plugin. We first setup both environments on a separate VPS from Vultr in NY with 768MB ram and 1 CPU core. Each VPS was installed with PHP7, nginx v1.9.10, php-fpm, Memcached, Opcache and MariaDB 10x. We installed the X Theme with the demo data “Restaurant demo” for each install and only the required plugins for each
