After being somewhat inspired by the latest blog post by @kev (kevq.uk/core-web-vitals-and-wo), I wrote a very basic guide for setting up a cheap, performance-focused WordPress blog:

@uglyduck interesting, i tried to install WP Rocket on my EasyWP site earlier today and it complained saying “you dont meed this because EasyWP is already caching” did you not have that issue?

@uglyduck also, how did you get a Let’s Encrypt cert on EasyWP? I just bought one from NameCheap (was like $10).

What is this witchcraft??

@kev Now to be fair, I had an SSL cert through Namecheap *already* - but I should really write up a post how to do the same with Let's Encrypt

@uglyduck yeah you should! I didn't know it would be possible unless you have certbot running on the server.

@uglyduck worhout certbot that would be a right pain - id rather pay the $10/y 😂

@kev 100% agreed. Every 90 days running through that is not a good money/time ratio
