Reduce server response time [Anyone Else?]
« on: June 22, 2018, 02:37:37 AM »
First I want to apologize because I am not sure where to post this under.

I tested my websites with Google PageSpeed and found that all of my website and every single page got this suggestion from Google "Reduce server response time". I know it's not my WordPress template because I was using another control panel before that and I did the exact test and passed with 100. I worked very hard for it.

So to test this even more I tried with another VPS hosting. I installed CWP. Same thing "Reduce server response time".

I wanted to know if anyone else is having this issue. But I don't know anyone using CWP. So I tested http://centos-webpanel.com/ and https://centos-webpanel.com/ and there it is "Reduce server response time".

Edit: Sorry, I was wrong about that html page (deleted comment). I didn't get the "Reduce server response time" suggestion. I guess it was cached. Anyways, all the other issues still stand. I cannot pass that "Reduce server response time" suggestion.

After farther investigation, I've learned that it's Varnish. On my old control panel I didn't use Varnish. I was using a WordPress cache plugin. For some reasons Varnish and Contact Form 7 together is causing this suggestion from PageSpeed.

After deactivated CF7, no more suggestion. If use CF7 then don't use Varnish instead use cache plugin, no more suggestion.

I take back on the last comment. I was wrong. I have spend two weeks or more on this issue and the answer was just right under my noise.

I recently used Cloudflare for DDoS protection because it was recommended by my new host. I didn't think must of it afterward.

Well, it turned out Cloudflare was the cause. You can read about it here. https://blog.cloudflare.com/ttfb-time-to-first-byte-considered-meaningles/

Here is something funky I am wondering about. I install speedtest addon and run the tests either through cwp or just ssh and the highest speeds I get are just under 4MBPS. I am on a AT&T business 20GB up and down fiber. I will test in the morning with a windows computer plugged into same spot as my CWP is now but every other computer get close to 18gb up and down. it's crazy. I am about 1 day from trashing CWP. How do they even label this as stable. Every day new problem. Over messing with it constantly. Now the file manager don't work, SERIOUSLY, do they do this to try to get some business from people to purchase support?

Yeah, I get the frustration. It does seem like everything they want you to contact support. When you do contact support they tried to tell you that CWP & CWPpro don't come with support. You have to pay for support.

And it the forum, we have a bunch of people that are lost and putting their hairs.

I'm looking for a free control panel but if I'm going to pay for support everyday or monthly then I will just pay for cPanel. It is as you said "crazy"!

I am thinking about trying Vesta but I just moved to CWP 3 weeks ago. Also just upgraded to pro. It's so much of a pain to keep on moving as it effect my business.

Anyways, my issue with "Reduce server response time (TTFB)" was cause my Cloudflare. I stop using Cloudflare even though there was an increase in load time. But I think as for SEO, Google seem to care enough about TTFB that they have it on PageSpeed. This is just my opinion. Maybe load time is not as important as TTFB if your load is acceptable. Google cares for user experience. User hate to wait.

Anyways, you sound experienced with servers. I am not. I simply learn as needed for my websites. Have you tried Vesta? I like CWP because it already configured with varnish+ngnix+apache. I can't do it on my own. But I see a lot people voted for Vesta over CWP at lowendtalk by a huge margin.

By the way, I've just updated. File manager working now.

UPDATE: To solve this TTFB with Cloudflare you have to do cache everything in page rules. It's kinda of a pain if you have login pages. It will be a problem. You just have to set rules not to cache your login pages.
