As someone who was keen to move away from Web 2 companies, I wanted to share my experience with transitioning to Flux and using WordPress. I’m happy to report that after a few initial bumps in the road, I am now fully set up and enjoying the benefits of my new setup.
The Process: Easy and Simple
The process of transitioning my database to Flux was surprisingly easy. With the help of CNAME records from Cloudflare, I was able to point my website to Flux and set up my WordPress site without any major issues.
Initial Teething Problems
Of course, there were some initial teething problems that were largely my fault. For example, I had my website deployed in two different locations, causing some confusion. But these were quickly fixed, and I was able to move forward with testing the capabilities of my new setup.
Testing the Limits: Flux vs. Web 2
One of the things I was most excited to test was the speed and stability of Flux compared to my old Web 2 providers. Using loader.io, I was able to throw some serious traffic at my website, maxing out at 10,000 clients over a 15-second period.
To my delight, Flux handled this traffic with ease. Compared to my Web 2 providers, the speed and stability of Flux were significantly better, giving me confidence in my decision to make the switch.
Final Thoughts: Happy with My Decision
Overall, I’m thrilled with my decision to move to Flux and use WordPress. The process was simple, the teething problems were quickly resolved, and the performance of Flux is far superior to my old Web 2 providers.
If you’re considering making the switch to Flux, I highly recommend giving it a try. With the speed and stability it provides, you’ll be happy you did.
