Does WP Performance work with Nginx?

WP Performance has support for Nginx servers, but an extra step is required to make it working properly.
Depending on your WP Performance configuration, rewrite rules will be generated and listed under the “Settings” tab. You have to copy and paste generated rules manually into the Nginx config file.

Does WP Performance support WordPress Multisite?

WP Performance supports WordPress Multisite with subdomains.

I want to say that it worked but my site still feel the same and I've activated the essentials so I don't know what to say. If I can get a reply back from the developer, that'll be nice. It says CSS not found and Javascript not found.

I've tried all caching and minifying plugins available on WordPress.org and CodeCanyon. WP-Performance is easily my favorite. Can't recommend it enough.

This is a plugin for people who understand how to make it work. There must be about 60 boxes that can be ticked/unticked. Out of the box it does not work well with Divi, It breaks the site. On the plus side the author responds quickly and is helpful. Also on the plus side when the plugin is disabled all goes back to normal which is a relief. On the negative side is that it was working until there was a Divi update and then it no longer works again. With other themes it might be good but not with Divi. For the record Page Speed insights when enabled 60/86. When disabled 31/71. So it does make a difference and I'm just sad it conflicts with my theme and I don't have the knowledge as to which boxes to have ticked.
