Optmize WordPress for Load Testing

There are many blog posts out and about that discuss how to optimise your WordPress site, usually they focus purely on front-end optimisation - the optimisation you do to your HTML, asset delivery and compression or purely on back-end optimisation.

Any seasoned developer will know that it's a combination of both of these factors that needs to be addressed even if it isn't necessarily your speciality domain.

This post sets out to give a (somewhat) comprehensive set of optimisations that can be done both on the front end, and the back end of your WordPress site
