Features that don't work on intranet environments

Some WP Rocket features need to establish connection with WP Rocket servers to perform different actions, such as validating the license and processing assets.

The following features don't work on private intranet environments:

  • License validation
  • Plugin update notifications
  • API Calls for RocketCDN (optional and paid feature), Cloudflare Add-on and Sucuri add-on
  • Load CSS Asynchronously
  • Remove Unused CSS
