Caching Options

You can see them all under Performance under CloudProxy’s settings.

Here is what each option means:

Enabled (recommended) – Means Sucuri CloudProxy will cache your entire site and only clean cache every few hours. This is the best option when it comes to site performance, it will make your site faster.

Minimal caching (only for a few minutes) – Means Sucuri CloudProxy will cache your entire site and clean cache every few minutes. This is the best option when you need to make constant changes to your site.

Site caching (using your site headers) – Means Sucuri CloudProxy will not cache anything for logged in users. This is the best option if you run a custom CMS, a forum like vBulletin or an eCommerce store.

Disabled (use with caution) – Means Sucuri CloudProxy will only cache static files such as images, .css, .js, .pdf, .txt, .mp3 and a few more extensions, but note that it can slow down your site.

With static files, it is best to use versioning during development which will ensure updates go live as expected. This is done by adding a query string such as “?ver=123.1” and incrementing (such as ?ver=123.2) on each update. Another option is to clear CloudProxy’s cache.

Also, note that you can always clear your site’s cache whenever you want, even with the “Enabled” option by going to “Performance” under your Cloudproxy’s settings and clicking on “Clear Cache”.
