Concrete5 slow

Permalink
Hi,

My C5 site and a friends I built are both slow. They take up to 10 seconds (and on his site sometimes more) to load pages. Does anyone have any ideas? Please consider that I am on Control Panel, and therefore maybe there is a solution there? Thanks.

Hi Che,
Have you taken a look at these how-to's that focus on speed?

Those are good places to start.

I have seen the first one. Haven't seen the second one which more work on my clients site *groan*.

Is there a way to check if Zend Optimiser etc is running in my CPanel provided by my host?

Cheers.

Ok I fixed it by totally disabling the cache. I have no idea why, but it has fixed it.

And let me say that I just upgraded my site (not my clients above) to 5.5 and I can now HONESTLY say that Concrete5 is awesome. I had my doubts with the errors above etc, but the new version really is super.

Weird turning off the cache helped me also..

It may be a single block causing an issue. Try the "On - If blocks allow it" option and you may see better results.

Where do you turn off the cache?

In the 'Dashboard' 'System and Settings' 'Optimization'.
