We are working on the optimization of radionumberone.it (worpress based website) and we would like to do some questions about it:
When we work on the publication/editing of posts or update pages information, sometimes we face 524 and Cloudflare errors. Searching the web, we came along with a Cloudflare support article in which it is suggested to exclude WordPress /wp-admin from the cache level.
However, we have been told that this could not be the solution, since the entire website is proxied by Cloudflare.
That’s correct, but if you have selected Cache Level: Standard (without Page Rule) for your domain, the CSS and JS files are cached (HIT) too (at least for me - or it’s due to my origin cache setup).
Due to my curiosity, may I ask which WordPress request or a plugin needs more time than that to execute something?
You stated “publiush/edit posts” - that should be in 100 seconds.
Have you tried troubleshooting / debug the MySQL and PHP process(es) at your origin host / server?
WP Cron or?
