Activating the pairCDN service in WordPress

Please note, usage of pairCDN with WordPress relies on the “W3 Total Cache”

    8. Click “CDN” from the menu on the left hand side of the screen
    9. Under “Configuration“, set “SSL Support” to “Disabled”
    10. For “Replace site’s hostname with” enter your pairCDN hostname
    11. Click “Test Mirror” and if that does not report “Passed“, do not
      proceed further
    12. If the mirror test passed, scroll down to “Advanced
    13. Check the box for “Disable CDN on SSL pages
    14. If you wish to disable pairCDN for admin logins, select that under the
      Disable CDN for the following roles” option
