PageSpeed Module

ARM64

The PageSpeed Module is only available for X86 and not yet for ARM64.

On this site, you will find a step by step guide on enabling and using the PageSpeed Module from Google.

The Pagespeed Module is already compiled and shipped with CloudPanel and can be used right away.

The PageSpeed Module for NGINX improves the performance of your site by:

  • Combining CSS
  • Combining Javascript
  • Minifying HTML
  • Defer JavaScript
  • Optimize Images
  • Rewriting Images
  • Layz Loading Images
  • Rewriting Javascript
  • And many more

Enabling the PageSpeed Module

The PageSpeed Module needs to be enabled in the NGINX Vhost on domain level.

  1. Go to the Vhost of your domain and add the following lines:
include /etc/nginx/pagespeed.conf;
pagespeed on;
pagespeed FileCachePath "/home/cloudpanel/htdocs/domain.com/wp-content/cache/ngx_pagespeed/";
WordPress

If you have selected the WordPress Vhost Template, then lines already exist. Remove the # to enable it.



  1. Change the FileCachePath to your WordPress installation.

  2. Click on the button Update to enable the PageSpeed Module.

Configuration

The configuration of the PageSpeed Module can be found in the following file:

/etc/nginx/pagespeed.conf

Testing

After enabling the PageSpeed Module, you should see your website is loading faster because it's about 40% smaller. All CSS, Javascript, and Images are compressed and optimized.

By checking the page source or the requests with the Chrome Dev Tools you see that the CSS, JS, and Images have been optimized by the NGINX Module.



Purging Cache

The PageSpeed Module can be cleared by deleting all files of the FileCachePath directory that you adjusted.

pagespeed FileCachePath "/home/cloudpanel/htdocs/domain.com/wp-content/cache/ngx_pagespeed/";
