Typo3 CDN Integration
- Create a pull zone before you start with the Typo3 CDN integration.
- Login to the Typo3 backend.
- Navigate to the Extension Manager and install the extension smile_cdn.
- Configure the smile_cdn extensions by defining the CDN URL (without http(s)://) and the desired filters to offload your assets.
- Flush the frontend caches in the Typo3 backend.
- Verify the source code to ensure that the assets are loading from KeyCDN.
Another Typo3 CDN integration option is to use the cs_cdn extension which is based on smile_cdn. This extension replaces local file references with references to remote files, overwrites file links, and can delete KeyCDN files from cache.
