How to make WordPress faster with nginx / php7:
Loadtime of 0,2x seconds:
Step 1: Deactivate all WordPress Plugins!
Plugins make the Website a lot slower. I have only activated Yoast SEO / Akismet Anti-Spam and nothing else.
Step 2: Use php7 and nginx!
php7.0-fpm and nginx is very fast.
Step 3: Add expire header in nginx!
Cache jpg, css, js and png files.
Step 4: Deactivate Avatars in WordPress!
Nobody needs them and they take disk / network space.
Step 5: Optimize images with optipng!
This makes the images much smaller.
Step 6: Use minifier!
css / js minifier take less space.
Step 7: Avoid using external sources!
css / js / google ads from external domains take a long time to load. Try to put everything just onto your server.
Yeah i know, Youtube videos, images from amazon and piwik is a problem.
Step 8: Use http2!
Lead the web into the future.
