Get Started With BerqWP

BerqWP is a cloud-based speed optimization plugin for WordPress, primarily focused on core web vitals optimization. It’s 100% automatic, meaning you don’t need to configure a thing, just install the plugin, and your website will be optimized automatically.

Requirements:

  1. BerqWP plugin requires WP Cron to work properly because BerqWP uses WP Cron to send pages for caching in the background. If it isn’t set up, you can ask your hosting provider to set up a cron that hits wp-cron.php every minute. They’ll set it up for you. [Optional but recommended for faster caching]
  2. BerqWP should be the only frontend caching service active on your website. If your hosting provider has set up a cache on your website, please ask them to disable it.
  3. If your website is hosted on SiteGround, please ask them to whitelist our server IP (164.92.80.195) so that BerqWP can work on SiteGround without any interruption.

BerqWP Plugin Installation:

The installation process is very simple:

  • Log into your WordPress dashboard.
  • Deactivate any plugins related to speed optimization, caching, and image optimization.
  • Click on Plugin > Add New Plugin.
  • On the right side search bar, enter “BerqWP”.
  • Click on the “Install” button.
  • Within a few seconds, an “Activate” button will appear; click on it to activate the plugin.

Once the plugin is installed and activated, you’ll find it in your WordPress dashboard. Please note that it may take 5 to 10 minutes to initiate caching. You can monitor the increase in the number of cached pages on the BerqWP dashboard. If the cache warmup doesn’t start automatically, visit the page you want to cache in an incognito window, and it will be sent to the Photon Engine immediately to create its cache.

License Key Activation:

To activate your BerqWP license key:

  • Log into your WordPress dashboard.
  • Click on “BerqWP” from the left panel.
  • Click on the “License” tab, and then you should see this screen.
  • Enter your license key and then click on the “Activate” button. In the end, flush the cache so all pages can be cached again with premium optimization features.

Testing BerqWP Optimizations:

When you newly set up the BerqWP plugin on a website, we recommend testing the website first using the BerqWP Sandbox Mode. Always test pages in an incognito window. If you encounter a problem, create a support ticket on the BerqWP website dashboard.
