I installed W3 total cache, enabled all caching and minify, I flushed all caches and clicked whatever popups I got that wanted to purge.
Following a youtube tutorial on installation I went through each setting setting it up as directed. I signed up with amazon cloudfront, which in itself is another pain in the ass cause it costs money. But did it anyway… In the video tutorial the user was then presented with options to upload all images, themes, plugins etc to amazon. But I never received this popup. Amazon’s api key and everything is inserted correctly and clicking the test button works. I just don’t receive the popup to add theme files etc.
So after setting up w3 total cache, I went and installed y-slow to see how good my website now was…. 12.3 sec load. Rating “D”…
Due to all the social plugins + ecwid shopping cart, the lack of uploads to the CDN, the rating was terrible and speed just as slow as normal. Out of the 80 or so files that resided on my server, only 30 of them were now being downloaded from Amazon, with no performance benefit when downloading from Australia.
On top of this my site which did have a SSL, was now presenting with a certificate error from edge.quantserve.com issued to a248.e.akamai.net Akamai Technologies Inc.
Not just 1 popup error, multiple….
So I uninstalled this POS plugin which seemly only works for people in US and I still am getting the same certificate warnings and clicking on my favicon shows no sign of my certificate unless I go into the firefox security options.
Anyone know how I can fix this?
