SG Optimizer

The SG Optimizer is designed to link WordPress with all SiteGround Performance services.

This plugin is designed to link WordPress with the SiteGround Performance services. It WILL NOT WORK on another hosting provider. The SG Optimizer plugin has few different parts handling speciffic performance optimizations:

SuperCacher Config

The main functionality of SuperCacher part of the plugin is to purge your dynamic cache whenever your content updates. For example, when you create a new post, someone comments your articles, etc. In addition to that, if you have a working Memcached service on your server, the plugin will allow you to easily configure and enable WordPress to use it.

There is public Purge function - sg_cachepress_purge_cache, which can be used by other plugins/themes. Example usage:

if (function_exists('sg_cachepress_purge_cache')) { sg_cachepress_purge_cache(); }

HTTPS Config

The HTTPS Config allows you to force SSL usage on your site. It will redirect your entire traffic over secure connections and will fix mixed content issues. A side benefit of switching on the HTTPS is the automatic use of the HTTP2 protocol and its performance benefits.

PHP Config

This tool will allow you to check if your website is compatible with the recommended by SiteGround PHP version(7.0) and switch to it with a click. It is highly advisable to keep your WordPress running on the recommended PHP for best security and performance.

  • PHP 5.5
  • SiteGround account
  • If you're not hosted with SiteGround this plugin WILL NOT WORK because it relies on a specific server configuration
