Remember to replace {domain} with domain configured in SpinupWP.

SpinupWP Site Settings

SpinupWP

This must-use plugin adds page cache purging functionality to your WordPress site. In addition to automatically clearing the page cache for individual posts, pages, and other content when it is updated, this plugin allows you to purge the cache for the whole site as well. You will need to download this plugin and install it in the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ folder.

The following must also be added to your wp-config.php file:

define( 'SPINUPWP_CACHE_PATH', '/sites/{domain}/cache' );

Redis Object Cache

This plugin enables a persistent object cache within WordPress, which will greatly reduce the number of database calls for each page request. It can be easily installed by searching “Redis Object Cache” inside the WordPress dashboard but will need further configuration.

The following must also be added to your wp-config.php file:

define( 'WP_CACHE_KEY_SALT', '{domain}' );
define( 'WP_REDIS_SELECTIVE_FLUSH', true );

Limit Login Attempts

This plugin prevents an attacker from successfully executing a brute force attack to gain access to your WordPress site. This plugin can be easily installed by searching “Limit Login Attempts” inside the WordPress dashboard. Default configuration of this plugin is fine.
