Site very slow - Help please3 users found helpful
The C5 installation is 18.104.22.168, with a couple of modified blocks (autonav, page_list, and some external forms)
I have gzip working through htaccess, and even with full page caching on, stats turned off, non-editable css, and google cdn on jquery, I get ridiculously slow loading times. The actual page load is small, but when looking at the NET settings in firebug, the page seems to hang and waits from anything as little as 1 second, up to over 60 seconds...
Any ideas on this would be much appreciated.
Check your httpd.conf file for something like this
KeepAlive On KeepAliveTimeout 5
If it is off then turn it on.
See this excellent set of performance tuning notes for details on how bad a sites performance can be without it turned on.
And this has solved the problem, even with cache turned off in the admin section, this was still causing issues, but with:
set in the config/site.php, the site is zipping along dramatically faster! If anyone is having problems with a slow loading site, this is your solution!
Indeed it maybe faster. But I wouldn't have said over 10 seconds to load was acceptable for such a site. I would guess it would be sub 5 seconds with keep-alive turned on. But if your happy; that's all that counts.
lol. I'm not a mind reader :P So I will change my comment from "over 10 seconds" to "about 10 seconds"
That site has an error 404 as well as what appears to be no keep-alive.
It is like night and day! THANK YOU!
