Hey guys I just had a custom plugin built to be able to give rewards points with EE and Woo and it saves the users info and adds them to a membership with Woo Memberships.
Now I also want to add Learn Dash.
Finally, here is the question :).
You guys always tell me how it is, so I want your honest opinion or even better FACTS.
Can I run Woo, EE and Learndash all on the same URL?
2) Should I use Woo Memberships or a different Membership plugin?
3) Does server size determine my ability to use Woo, LearnDash and EE on same URL? I have 16gb ram, 6cores and 100gb storage.
4) Keeping all option on the table, Would it be possible to MOVE EE to a “subfolder” example.com/ee/classes-and-events. And would the users from one wordpress instance get combined with users in the subfolder?
5) Or should I keep EE and Woo how I have it now, and then install Learndash in a subfolder? So I could seel the courses on main URL and then give them link to access subfolder of learndash?
Im just guessing on all the stuff above, so forgive me if it sounds dumb. I really don’t know whats possible. But I definitely want to keep using EE no matter what so that’s why I’m asking here. Thanks
Technically there is nothing stopping you from doing so, they all do their only thing.
LearnDash actually has an integration with EE:
So nothing stopping you running both of those.
Woo is its own e-commerce solution with no integration into EE, again nothing stopping you from running both.
Most of the questions you are asking are more around server management or personal opinion, we don’t provide server management and you’ll have your own opinion on the plugins you want to use. So with that said I’ll answer each of your questions:
That 1 is completely up to you as it depends what you want from a membership plugin.
Is there a specific reason you are asking about Woo Memberships vs another?
There are a lot of considerations to take when running e-commerce/multiple e-commerce plugins. For example the volume of traffic, the number of options within products/events/course, how well your plugins are coded and what exactly they are doing and so on.
We can’t tell you based on EE + Woo + LD if X server or Y server will work. You’ll need to monitor performance and work from there. There is no technical reason why thee server you listed shouldn’t work, but again it’s not as clear cut as yes or no. There are hosting packages specifically geared towards e-commerce and the server management around specific for that reason 🙂
On a standalone sub-site install, no, at least not without a lot of customization on your side.
Using WordPress MultiSite, sure, but that also has its own complexities/advantages/disadvantages to work with.
We can’t provide support for working through those types of options, you need a sys admin and someone who can spend the time working through you sites specific needs for that.
It really depends on what you are doing, why a subfolder and why not the main site? Looking to integrate courses (LearnDash) with EE, then installing on a subsite means they are separate installs, EE doesn’t have access to LD and LD doesn’t have access to EE.
In short, combining all of 3 of the plugins mentioned can be done one single site but you’ll need to monitor what is happening, find any bottlenecks and work through those. I know in previous posts you’ve enabled caching and optimization plugins but this will be a step above that making sure the code in use is efficient and the server is managed accordingly.
