Sallymelek it does, yes. In all honesty, ReCache and the bokt/redis extension can run together but must use separate databases so they don’t try to access the same resources. The difference between ReCache and the redis extension is that ReCache builds it’s own assets alongside Flarum, whereas the bokt extension actually changes the file system driver to use redis directly instead of the file system.
This makes the retrieval of assets much quicker. As a test, I’ve temporarily disabled ReCache here, and an running the bokt redis extension on its own.
The speed is very impressive, and I’m sure your can see that also when accessing the site.
In terms of performance based on your current setup, yes - you’d benefit from an upgrade to the existing droplet you are running.
What I think we’ll be useful at this stage is to collect a concise list of the assets that are loading totalling the additional 1Mb plus you see on your site via the Flarum labs. This would be my next suggestion to make sure that we eliminate any unnecessary bloat in order to speed up the site.
