Caching Purge for WordPress

WordPress PageSpeed and Redis Cache Purge Plugin by aMiSTACX

Purge PageSpeed and or Redis Caching from WordPress Dashboard

We are delighted to announce the availability of our first WordPress public plugin! Although very simple in design, the plugin is designed to tackle some not so obvious difficulties when using WordPress with PageSpeed and/or Redis Caching.

Truly PageSpeed is a complex module designed for Apache and NGINX, and our plugin is designed only for Apache, and is designed to execute a full flush of the PageSpeed cache or individual URLs. The Redis purge function accomplishes a full Redis Cache purge.

This plugin should work on any Apache stack as long as the following specs are met:

PHP version 7.2.7 or greater
MySQL version 5.7 or greater
PHP Curl 7.x or greater
Redis 3.0.6 or greater [Enabled, Running]
PageSpeed 1.13.35 Stable or greater [Enabled]
WordPress 4.9.8 or greater
Default Distro PageSpeed & Redis Install Paths [Tested on Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS]

You can save yourself a lot of time if you don’t want to go through building a stack with PageSpeed or Redis, and make use of one of our turnkey stacks for WordPress that have PageSpeed and Redis and the aMiSTACX plugin pre-installed. In about less than ten minutes you can have the whole stack up and running.

The below video is an overview of enabling and configuring the plugin on a WordPress powered by an aMiSTACX G3.

Questions, bugs, or concerns – if you are an aMiSTACX customer, please contact support. All others, please post on the WordPress Forum.

Should you run into phpmyadmin showing a blank screen due to PageSpeed and JS, then exclude the path in the pagespeed.conf
