Once you have configured your DNS, the next step is to configure the application itself to use the CDN.
Add the vhost
For your respective stack and store, add a new vost in the format "cdn.example.com" (replace example.com accordingly).
Configuring CORS headers
Cross origin headers are essential when serving static content from a different domain to that of your main website; without them the browser will actively block the requests for security.
We recommending configuring the headers on the CDN domain like so,
At the top of
cdn.example.com/general/cdn.example.com.conf, include the existing CDN configuration to enable it. If you want to customise the headers, copy the file to a new location and include that new respective file.
# CORS include /microcloud/domains/example/domains/cdn.example.com/general/cdn.include.conf;
Followed by an Nginx reload.
Then, the final step is to just symlink the document root from the CDN domain to the final domain,
cd /microcloud/domains/example/domains/cdn.example.com rmdir http ln -sr /microcloud/domains/example/domains/example.com/http .
Configure the store settings
You should then update the URLs in Magento as follows,
We do not recommend using a CDN on the secure JS assets as this can cause issues with the checkout and the admin WYSIWYG editor.
