  • CDN Domain Name – This is the domain name you created when you initially set up your CDN in your Bunny account. If you gave your Pull Zone the name “Jack” then the Pull Zone name would look something like
  • Site URL – This is the full site URL of the website you wish to accelerate with the CDN e.g.,
  • Excluded – By default .php files are excluded from being pulled by the CDN. You may wish other files to be excluded such as .tmp Just add them to the list using a comma to separate each file type. E.g., .php,.tmp,.txt
  • Included Directories – The Bunny plugin defaults to looking for files in the wp-content and wp-includes directories. If you need to you can add other directories to these again using a comma to separate each one.
  • API Key – If you head over to and log in to your account you will find your API key in the Account Settings page. Enter this key here to allow the Bunny CDN plugin to purge your CDN when necessary.
  • Disable CDN for Admin User – You should check this box, so the CDN does not interfere with your website while you are logged in as Admin and making changes.

Once you have filled in all the boxes you should use the button at the bottom of the form to Enable and clear the cache for good measure.
