my magento is running too slow:
PageSpeed Score :34%
YSlow Score :77%
i tried to improve the speed by enabling cache and compression. i enable the cache on:
system>cache managemet> all green(enabled)
but as you can see on gtmetrics, they are not enabled (Leverage browser caching F (5) - Enable gzip compression F (10))
why isnt it enabling? can anyone help me?
also, is there any common fixes to speed up magento speed?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Browser caching is different from the Magento caches.
Please read PageSpeed: Leverage browser caching. You have to modify the .htaccess(present in Magento root directory) file as mentioned in this link.
Enabling the gzip compression will compress the webpage and css before transferring to the browser.So it will reduce the load time. For more details please refer following url PageSpeed: Enable gzip compression
cache and compression is okay now. thanks
what about other factors? these factors are still low:
is it recommended to deploy these?
and as the last question, my load speed is still low (4-10s). is there more i can do to decrease it?
I never tried deferring the java script in Magento.
Specify image dimension means you should specify the height and width of images used in the html components.
<img src="" height =' ' width= ''/>
>Image sprite means when you have to server many small images then you should combine then in one single image so the bandwidth required will be lees to download the image.(You can align it using css for different image view)
For example visit the following page sample page there is an image in the last of page with warrior image.
>Serve scaled images mean you should serve image of proper size , avoid resizing using css.
then there is nothing more i can do for the speed i guess
thanks for your time @muk_t
