Advanced settingsAccelerator for WordPress



  • Enable default WordPress emoji icons

    Turn on this option to enable WordPress emoji icons if there is wrong displaying of them.

  • Enable content optimization

    Turn off this option if there is no need to use all content processing optimization features (scripts, styles, media and HTML). In particular, it is used while troubleshooting the site.

  • Trying to always keep a content of ‘advanced-cache.php’ file in a right state

    It can be enabled in cases when file ‘advanced-cache.php’ can be periodically overwritten by other plugins or by server to prevent blocking of correct working of the product.

  • Normalize internal URLs

    If enabled, all internal (owned only given site) URLs will be adjusted according to the next mode:

    • protocol, host and path

      E.g. URLs /dir/ and // will be transformed to

    • host and path

      E.g. URLs /dir/ and will be transformed to //

    • path only

      E.g. URLs and // will be transformed to /dir/.

  • Process ‘If-Modified-Since’ request

    Specially processing ‘If-Modified-Since’ header request. If content is not changed it returns empty response and save server traffic.

  • Use different requests for asynchronous tasks execution

    If asynchronous tasks do not work via normal requests, then you can try using these alternative methods:

    • normal

      Ordinary network requests. It is by default.

    • local

      Using as server address for requests. Can help when there is some external bot protection etc.

    • internal

      Using direct PHP file execution. Can help when there is some server/site security blocking of internal server requests.

Task scheduler (Cron)#

  • Enable

    Enables or disables system Cron by setting the DISABLE_WP_CRON directive in wp-config.php.

    • Compensation on cached pages

      Forces Cron running to keep work of scheduled tasks. If hosting doesn’t support non-blocking request execution then /wp-cron.php request is made on frontend.

  • Use for asynchronous tasks execution

    If it is enabled, then /wp-cron.php file is used to make internal server requests for asynchronous tasks. Some hosting like GoDaddy can block such requests, so, it can be turned off and /index.php will be used.


  • Enable

    Enables special mode to using page’s seraph_accel_proc parameter.

  • Enable HTTP trace header

    Just enables special headers in HTTP response to monitor correct working of the content processor (X-Seraph-Accel-Cont) and caching system (X-Seraph-Accel-Cache).

  • Enable additional information

    Enables additional debug information in content processing while troubleshooting the site such as script and styles original names. Also, it adds some server request information into X-Seraph-Accel-Cache header.


  • Content generation delay

    For testing influence of long content generation to the server and caching plugins.

  • Add random invisible content

    For testing influence of large content to the server and caching plugins.
