Integrating memcached to wordpress

by Ruchira on October 4, 2010

If you have busy site which gets thousands of visitors a day you might be having a hard time managing your server load. If you are using apache it makes it harder. The best decision is moving to nginx or lighttpd. If Im the one who manage the server Ill choose Nginx because its little bit ahead of lighttpd.

  • If you are newbie for nginx read my guide for installing nginx with all the necessary packages-

Nginx beats apache in all aspects. Some people using Nginx as reverse proxy to apache its good solution but all the dynamic php content is handled by apache. This 2010 and most of the sites are dynamic !

this is 2010


Using Amazon S3 with wordpress

Ruchirablog faster
Now Im running Ubuntu+Nginx+PHP-FPM+Memcached on this blog. And pingdom says my website loads about in 4 seconds and I want to drive it further! I know this kind of page load time really blows many CDN enabled sites. But I wanted to try out and then I have faced problems here is info-

Hmm my decision to use cloudfront turned to real bad. But Ill do more testing on my testing environment. 🙂 But I want to move my images to elsewhere because to deliver it more fast ( I dont think it will be more fast than my nginx setup 😛 ) for readers in different countries and continents . And also to reduce disk usage of my server


About that downtime

by Ruchira on October 3, 2010

Hmm I know you probably noticed the last down time happened few hours ago. 🙁 Thats because I crazily wanted to tune my blog to get maximum loading speed. Grrrr.
Ruchirablog downtime

  • What I had before,

I was installed centos 5.5+Nginx+PHP-FPM+Memcached on linode and trust me it was very fast. But I always wanted to tweak it to go further. Pingdom said that front page was loading at average of 4.5 seconds and it is pretty fast and beating most of CDN enabled sites out there! 😛 But hey I wanted to load pages in 2sec :EVIL

  • What you did to get 2sec load time

I signed up fro amazon s3 and cloudfront to move my theme files and media files to edgecast cloud storage. Then started to move files to CDN with “W3 Total Cache” wordpress plugin and saw that some of images on my posts were pointing to amazon cloudfront domain instead of my own Cname domain. And also some of images were broken during upload. So I decided to get back to old state by restoring from a complete linux disk image backup made few hours ago.  And clicked “Restore”

I have message for people who say’s hey windows sucks switch for Ubuntu. Well people this is not a matter of fact about paid and free. In my personal experience I love Microsoft windows and I’m using Ubuntu for this web server

  • Windows is not for servers!

But hey do you know that 2 most popular web apps that i use run on Microsoft IIS . They are respectively Godaddy and sitemeter. So you cant say that microsoft is not for servers.

wordpress with nginx

by Ruchira on October 2, 2010

Well If you read my article about installing Nginx+Mysql+PHP-FPM on debian or linux server you might interested in knowing how to setup wordpress on your newly installed lnmp serve. If you didnt read my article about how to install lnmp its here-

LNMP is really nice installer program I only discovered only 1 bug in it. Actually its not about security, LNMP asks your domain when installing so if you provide for lnmp it will only setup your domain with www. So if some one access ( Without www) it will not placed on the server and your web browser wont resolve that domain and sidplay Not Found error. So don’t worry now im going to write about solving this error and configuring nginx.conf correctly for complete install for wordpress. I have modified nginx.conf forWordPress Permalinks + WP Super Cache + Non WWW to WWW. , So to setup this I have included modified nginx.conf below

You need to open your nginx.conf to put this if this is a single domain lnmp server setup just login to ssh and your nginx.conf file is located in

  • /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf

To edit in type ,

  • nano /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf

It will open nginx.conf file in nano text editor like this-
Nginx lnmp

[click to continue…]


Update- I have modified this script to use nginx latest version and the whole guide for complete web site including DNS setup can be found on here

Nginx lnmp

Nginx is become just easy for newbies. thanks for the Chinese developer Licess installing nginx+PHP-FPM+Eaccelarator+Mysql+Pureftpd is easy as 1 2 3. The developers site is its really glad to see that he is supplying this for free because these kind of developers really rare now a days.
