CDN helps to serve your WooCommerce store at lightning speed to users all around the world. It does this by saving a snapshot of your site’s resources and delivering them from the nearest server to the user.
Most CDNs disable caching on the WordPress backend by default. But some CDNs don’t, and this can slow down your store’s admin panel drastically. In such a case, you need to exclude your admin dashboard from the CDN’s cache to improve its performance.
If you’re using Cloudflare, you can set up a Page Rule to disable Cloudflare features on WordPress admin pages. Here’s how to do that:
- Go to the Page Rules section under your Cloudflare dashboard.
- Add example.com/wp-admin/ in the URL field.
- In the settings fields, choose Cache Level and Bypass options.
- You can also add extra settings such as Disable Performance and Disable Security (not recommended). These settings are optional.
- Then click Save and Deploy.
It should take around 3 minutes for the settings to take effect.
For other CDNs, please reach out to their support to sort this out.
