You want to improve your pagespeed score by optimizing your images in WordPress ?
But you don't want to pay a subscription for a plugin ?
If you are using a VPS or a dedicated server, you don't need any plugin to optimize all your images easily.For that you can use this script :

Code:
# For debian/Ubuntu
wget -qO optimize.sh https://git.virtubox.net/virtubox/wp-optimize/raw/master/deb-wp-optimize.sh && bash optimize.sh

#For Centos/RedHat
cd /var/www
wget -qO optimize.sh https://git.virtubox.net/virtubox/wp-optimize/raw/master/centos-wp-optimize.sh && bash optimize.sh
If you want to do the process manually
Code:
# Debian/Ubuntu
apt-get update && apt-get install optipng jpegoptim -y

# Centos
yum update && yum install optipng jpegoptim -y

Then you just have to go in your web directory and to run the following commands :
Code:
cd /var/www
find . -name *.jp* | xargs jpegoptim --strip-all -m76
find . -iname '*.png' -print0 | xargs -0 optipng -o7 -preserve

Interesting article!

How can I check this script and sure that it optimized all images on my Wordpress sites?

And how can I see its results before and after installed the script.

The script will list all the files with the optimization process done for each image.



By processing all the /var/www it will optimize all your images. I will add a version for cPanel because it doesn't use /var/www as web folder
