    "If you do not have a CDN provider, you can still improve your site's performance using the "Self-hosted" method. On your own server, create a subdomain and matching DNS Zone record; e.g. static.domain.com and configure FTP options on the "Content Delivery Network" tab accordingly. Be sure to FTP upload the appropriate files, using the available upload buttons.".....this was writen for installing w3 cache in installation steps...but i am confused about which files to put in subdomain folder...

    hence can anybody help me out with detailed.step by step configuration of CDN (content delivery network)..so that i can use it as i dont have amazon CDN and first time working with this plugin...

    i understood all steps of instructions ..but not got clear idea of CDN

    hence can anyone help me out?

    thanks in advance

    First you need to create an account with "S3". I recommend you first configure w3totalcache to use "amazon s3". Once you have created the bucket, you can reconfigure w3totalcache for "couldfront" (amazon CDN). Follow the instructions and, after that you have created the distribution, you can start using the CDN.
    I also recommend NOT create Cnames in the DNS for your domain (subdomains) to spread the load of the web, as some people prefer, as w3totalcache- break your blog.
    Installation is simple and automatic. Make a backup to avoid problems.
