I’ve tried dig around to find answers to this but I think the questions are so basic that its hard to find an answer! Apologies in advance if I’ve missed something obvious!
1. Server Offline
I’ve enabled the option “Always Online” but if my server is overloaded, the home page and other sub pages that I’ve seen still show an error message saying there’s a problem with the server.
Does ‘Always Online’ not kick in in this instance? I would have thought that would be the whole idea.
2. Pages Not Caching
I’ve created rules to “Cache Everything” on my homepage, my sub pages and everything in the images folder but when I visit the website, the page load time is still really slow. I had assumed from by setting the previous settings that these pages would load straight from the CDN and not involve my webserver, if this not the case? There are no querystrings, etc. or anything that should trigger a reload.
When I use the Chrome DevTools, I can see resources load quickly but the actual homepage document takes around 6 seconds to load (and obviously nothing else loads until that completes), indicating its not being cached.
3. No Compression
I also see that the HTML, CSS and JS are not compressed despite enabling this feature - do I have to explicitly turn apply this using Page Rules as well as enabling the feature?
Again, sorry if these are silly questions.
