Installing and setup of this plugin are far easy. Let me guide you in simple few steps.
Login to to WordPress Dashboard
Add a new Plugin
Search for Breeze cache plugin
Click on Install Now button
Click on Activate button
Go to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Breeze
You will see here six tabs of Breeze: Basic, Advanced, Database, CDN, Varnish and FAQs.
First, let’s see Breeze Basic options: Enable Cache System, avoid everything. You may not need.
Advanced: Leave as it is
Database: Here you can optimize MySQL Database for WordPress
CDN: If you use any CDN, you can enter its hostname here
Varnish: Some host like Cloudways provides a feature called Varnish for the faster performance. If you are using Varnish, make sure to enable this option to ensure Page cache can get purged at the right event.
- Pro: UI is great, not overwhelming like W3 Total Cache. Some features look inspired by WP Rocket and Autoptimize, highly recommended for Varnish and CDN users. I found it faster than WP Super Cache.
- Cons: Browser Cache and CDN configuration are not up to mark. It can be improved.
- Overall rating: 4/5
I hope this helps. If you have any question, please feel free to ask.
