Server Compatibility

WP Rocket is compatible with these web servers:

  • Apache
  • NGINX
  • Microsoft IIS
  • LiteSpeed
  • OpenLiteSpeed

Did you know? If LiteSpeed cache is activated on your server, WP Rocket will automatically purge that cache whenever WP Rocket's is purged. (The LiteSpeed Cache WordPress plugin is not required.)

Apache Modules

On Apache servers WP Rocket will look for these modules and utilize them if available:

  • mod_alias
  • mod_deflate
  • mod_expires
  • mod_filter
  • mod_headers
  • mod_mime
  • mod_rewrite
  • mod_setenvif

Apache Directives

If you are getting an error: Options not allowed here when WP Rocket is enabled, it can happen if the server disallows option override for any reason. In these cases, you need to ask your hosting provider if they can allow the following directives to be overridden by our htaccess rules:

  • AddCharset
  • AddDefaultCharset
  • AddEncoding
  • AddOutputFilterByType
  • AddType
  • ExpiresActive
  • ExpiresByType
  • ExpiresDefault
  • FileETag
  • FollowSymLinks
