Concrete 5 Running Slow
my site (http://www.thortechnology.co.uk) is running slow. When I was building locally it was fine and as soon as i've moved it to the domain it's been running slow.
Is there any way that I can speed up the website ?
Check out pagespeed
this can give some indication on where your site is going slow. My guess is your hosting package is on a slow server.
<FilesMatch "\.(js|css|html|htm|php|xml)$"> SetOutputFilter DEFLATE </FilesMatch> <IfModule mod_headers.c> BrowserMatch MSIE ie Header set X-UA-Compatible "IE=Edge,chrome=1" env=ie </IfModule> <IfModule mod_expires.c> # Enable expirations ExpiresActive On ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 month" ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 year" ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 month" ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 month" ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 month"
Also use webpage test help: http://www.webpagetest.org/
Another step might be image optimization, using "imageoptim" and "optipng" on the shell - if available.
Also a merge and minify of all those css and js files should help out, altough you shouldn't touch those unless you know what you're doing. Also convert any pngs without transparency to jpgs. Aditionally Concrete5 supports thumbnails and responsive images to serve images with the right dimension.
