Compatibility

Plugin compatibility

We do not restrict any plugin usage, however, not all plugins are compatible. Plugins that require writing access to wp-config.php file are not compatible, in most cases this kind of plugins are for security, performance, cloning, restoring or similar but Closte has all these features built-in. Litespeed cache must be used for full-page caching for platform compatibility and better support.

Must use plugins

  • Litespeed cache for full page caching
  • Closte

Highly recommended to use

  • Use our backup system, not any other.
  • Use our built-in server-side security.
  • Use Litespeed cache for caching. For optimization, use Litespeed built-in features or mix it with another “Optimization” plugin e.g Fast Velocity Minify.
  • Use our free migration service.

Highly recommended NOT to use

  • Do not use plugins that send a non-cacheable PHP request on every visit e.g Analytics plugins or Advertising plugins. Those are CPU/Concurrency killers and there are tons of better alternatives.
  • Do not use any backup plugin or service.
  • Do not use any plugin for cloning, restoring, migrating and so on, use our features or our free migration service.

Not compatible plugins

  • Any plugin used for full-page cache or object-cache like WP Super Cache, W3TC or WP-Rocket.
  • Any plugin that throws a fatal error because requires writing access to the wp-config.php file without giving you the opportunity to manually update the wp-config.php file.
  • Any plugin that requires writing access to WordPress core files, in most cases, these are clone/restoring plugins.

Is my plugin compatible?
