We have a dedicated server running WordPress sites.
Server is Centos 7.8, Plesk Obsidian, and all the sites are running the Pro version of Comet Cache.
We have a Pro (not business or enterprise - way too costly) cloudflare account tied to our main domain.
Now, comet cache differs from other caching plugins like W3, in that it creates STATIC HTML versions of ALL the wordpress dynamic pages, and stores them in a directory under the plugin, and delivers those to users (automatically clears and reloads the cache when you make changes).
Cloudflare doesn’t have a lot of info, none recent, about WordPress. As near as I can tell:
We should NOT be using “cache everything” Cloudflare Page rule with WordPress, as we do NOT have the “cookies” (Bypass Cache on Cookie) option available in page rules under pro accounts. Correct? (there are conflicting articles in the knowledgebase)
The CloudFlare wordpress plugin is not viable / advised? (it is not tested with latest version of WordPress, for one thing - only up 5.2.6)
Is a cache plugin that operates the way comet cache does compatible?
Should server-side caching utilities, such as the NGINX cache be used?
Cloudflare really needs more information related to WordPress and to the caching plugins, especially for ‘free’ and ‘Pro’ accounts.
Any help / answers is always appreciated
