Use cloudflare for SSL


out of curiosity does w3 total cache work in earlier versions of wordpress?


It is not supported by 000webhost, that’s why :slight_smile:


are plugins like wp fastest cache


and does 000webhost support ewww images


Hi @athak

Cache plugins are not allowed in 000webhost as it is a free platform. You can upgrade to use those.

I’m not sure whether 000webhost supports ewww image plugin. Can you tell us why you need those plugins?


W3 cache plugin is a bad plugin anyway it causes errors you should use some other cache plugin like WP super cache made by wordpress it may work. Dont use any other like wp rocket or wp fastest cache.


Nope, just do not use any plugin of that kind.
