PressPi is the very first Turn-Key WordPress image for the RaspberryPi, Fully configured and completely optimized for the ARM platform.
Nginx 504 gateway timeout
Typically this happens when your browser is trying to serve cached versions of your website. Ctrl+ F5 will force your browser to purge any cookies or cached versions of the page and download the latest ‘live’ version of that particular page.
My Web Page isn’t loading correctly
My site is loading slowly
This is most likely because you are logged in as a ‘known user’ in wordpress. WP Supercache is configured to NOT cache pages for known users by default. This is intentional! If you cache pages as an administrator you won’t see any changes you are making unless you consciously remember to press ctrl+f5 on every page. To test if this is the root cause of your sites slow loading times, access your site from another browser where you are not logged in, it should be noticeably faster.
If you are still experiencing slow response times, it is most likely related to the number/size of uploaded images that are being displayed on the site OR it may be a poorly coded plugin. Try disabling all non-essential plugins and optimizing your on page images.
Why is <insert plugin name here> installed on this image?
Every plugin that is installed in the PressPi image was chosen because it is either an essential part in improving your websites performance or it serves to make a particular function easier. (Except the custom login plugin…that’s just there for it’s sweet, sweet style). You are of course welcome to delete, re-configure and install any plugins that you wish!
