How to optimize your stack for better scalability?
WordPress isn’t just used for your average blog that has 10 visitors per day. The tech industry has realized that the WordPress platform can be leveraged as the foundation for all kinds of content-driven websites. But when your website gets increasingly popular and your WordPress installation is under heavy load, that’s when things get more complicated.
WordPress is built on top of PHP & MySQL and in this presentations I will show you how to optimize your stack for better scalability. We’ll be talking about software like Varnish, Nginx, Redis & PHP-FPM. We will also cover topics like loadbalancing, session distribution, static file hosting, SSL termination & aggressive page caching.
Just enough infrastructure talk to make your WordPress bullet proof. But don’t worry, we’ll start from the beginning.
