This time I didn’t use the WordPress Performance Lab plugin, but the original solution, which only requires a single file in the
wp-content folder and a small modification in the
First, I created a new MariaDB dump, stopped the containers, copied and modified the files, and used the mysql2sqlite tool to convert the dump to a SQLite database file.
That was basically it.
Done in five minutes. More free resources on my server now and maybe a little less power consumption.
But one important thing: Make sure that the database file is not accessible from the Internet. If you create the SQLite database file with the conversion tool, you may have to create the
.htaccess file yourself.
