Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My current host who did all performance optimization for me has jacked up their price to $1,000/month, so I was forced to move to a new host. The new host charges only $150/month. They give you W3 Total Cache with recommended settings, but then they take their hands off. Now, I'm left with Total Cache and no knowledge of how to best configure it for my situation.

I have a WordPress site that gets one million page views a month. I don't add new content to the site. It's totally dormant. Comments are handled by Facebook Comments. In other words, all the functionality of the website can be handled simply by HTML/JS/CSS. No backend really needed!

So, how do I best configure W3 Total Cache for a situation like this?

@NathanC As I said, my host already offers "recommended settings". I'm not looking for generic settings. I'm looking for settings that will hopefully significantly reduce server load, given that the website is completely dormant. –  MK Safi Jan 29 at 14:26
    
Toss the site on Cloudflare and let them do the caching? There's no surefire settings - this is why hosting companies charge so much money: constant tweaking is needed. –  Nathan C Jan 29 at 14:28
