@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?
@kev Didn't try WP Rocket - but I think I have seen that previously on a client site in the past. I don't think EasyWP let's you use 3rd party caching options - instead relies on it's own?
@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.
@kev well seems someone else has already wrote above it nicer than I probably could 😛
@uglyduck @kev I think having a whole database and a login just to change my website (in edition to a login to the webhost) is overkill for my website. I was paying about $18 a year for my static site on some cpanel host and I did not have anything that required me to pay for hosting. Switched to github pages and everything is automatically setup to be secure so I don't have to administrate my website only upload my files and have github do all the work to make it work.
