WordPress Plugins with Cloudflare

I have a WordPress site on Cloudflare. Is it still okay to use WordPress cache plugins such as WP Super Cache, WP Fastest Cache, etc. Or, is it that since my site has Cloudflare, these plugins are redundant?


Thank you for asking.

Usually, I use WP Super Cache or W3 Total Cache with Cloudflare.

They’re not redundant, but use one only - not both in combination or like multiple caching plugins which are doing the same thing as far as there were users and topics which tried combining 3 or 4, then nothing worked as they wanted and had only issues.

There are tutorials how to properly configure both plugins and Cloudflare Page Rules for better performance.

Might depend on your origin host / web server what have you got installed, therefore all of the things might not be enabled and cannot be if you’re on a shared hosting.

Therefore, if you can, try to tune-up your PHP values a bit at your server/hosting provider/cPanel:

memory_limit = 256M
max_execution_time = 300
max_input_time = 1000
max_input_vars = 5000 or 7000
post_max_size = 64M
upload_max_filesize = 32M

Nevertheless, regarding performance, you can try out and configure Cloudflare APO for WordPress for a month and see how it goes:
