APO with WPEngine

Hi all. Sorry if this has already been asked, but I couldn’t find an answer after a brief search.

I’ve just installed the WP plugin and activated APO on my account. Everything looks fine from the WP plugin and from my CF dashboard, but APO isn’t kicking in for some reason.

I’ve reached out to wpengine support. They want to know more about if CF needs something special from the server config side - e.g. cache exceptions, NGINX config re-writes, etc.

I’m NOT using wpengine “Advanced Network” since I’m using other CF tools - Argo, page rules, etc.

Does anyone have experience with implementing APO on a wpengine site? Any help/advice would be very welcome!

Solved. Thought I’d post the solution here in case it helps anyone else.

The issue that I was, indeed, running wpengine Advanced Network. Once I reverted back to wpengine’s legacy DNS, APO kicked in and all is well.

As a sidenote, I’m amazed at the performance boost APO makes to my site. If you’re sitting on the fence (and you don’t have any plugin conflicts with your particular install) I can’t recommend it highly enough.
