Server Optimization

Server Optimization

We have a few customers using Magento on a shared hosting environment. The page load times are in the 10--12 second range... very slow by anyone's standards. I've tried optimizing MySQL and Magento on my own but I think it's time I find someone who really understands how to do this... is there anyone out there who can help? I'm not opposed to paying you for your time.

 

Thank you.

Re: Server Optimization

Hi,

 

is the Cache on?

Re: Server Optimization

Yes. It seems it takes the most amount of time doing the db query. After that, the screen renders pretty quickly.

Re: Server Optimization

optimization on shared is not so easy, because you have not much options.

only debug your theme and install full page cache

Re: Server Optimization

Start by checking your db usage - if you have access to the db memory stats.

 

Actually on a shared server your options are a bit limited, although there are some good Magento-optimised shared server hosts.

 

I would actually start by sticking your sites on GTMetrix.com - you can save a few sites on the free plan and it will show you where you can optimise your site for speed. If you get it showing a rated A and it's still slow then you might want to look at a different server.

Re: Server Optimization

I pretty much have access to everything on the server, I'm just fairly new to Magento. Like I said earlier, the pages load fast after the db query... so it's the db query that's the bottleneck. I'm sure it's a matter of optimizing MySQL for Magento. I would like to learn how to do this (or even pay someone to do it for me) so I could host other Magento websites.

 

For this particular Magento installation, so far I have chosen the options to combine css and js files, and use compilation. It has helped some but there's lots of room for improvement.
