Site performance issues
Even if I enable cache, it still takes 3-5 seconds to render a simple page. Unfortunately, APC is not an option with this host, and I am waiting to hear back about other optimization options. Interestingly I have never needed to enquire about APC for the various other CMSs we have used. Regardless, can anyone explain WHY c5 is so much slower than other CMSs? Is it the Zend Framework? Is it possible that the Zeus webserver used on these accounts is a factor?
I am really enjoying working with c5, the paradigm works. However the speed difference is very noticeable, and might just be a deal breaker.
Since I am not including any custom code, the API calls are irrelevent. The custom templates I have built are VERY simple. Between 4 and 7 areas, and only one of them has any conditional logic, but this does not seem to be making that template any slower. jQuery is required but all this is irrelevent.
I have been watching the timelines during a page request, using Firebug and Google developer tools. As an example, one simple request (to this page:http://www.erinachamber.com.au/index.php/about/... ) took 7.16 seconds. Of this 6.53 seconds was waiting for the document, and only 623ms loading a total of 22 images. Scripts and CSS took only 1ms each.
Unless there is something peculiar to C5, this shouldn't impact greatly as every site that is hosted by NetReg (unless vps or dedicated) has the same remote DB setup, and other CMSs are unaffected.
Is what I am seeing here normal?
Is that one slow to you too?
Did you manage to resolve this? I'm just putting a site on Netregistry and experiencing very very slow load time - usually over 10 seconds. Never encountered this before with any other host (at least 5 concrete5 site done so far). Tried all suggestions currently out there and nothing has made any noticeable
Unfortunately I have had to go back to Joomla for other sites, as we are pretty well established with NetRegistry as web developers, and changing CMS is far less disruptive than changing hosting company throughout our business. This is especially true since we have no speed issues with other CMS or frameworks.
Holy crap. This is going to be unusable. How the HECK have other people made sites with acceptable speed?

http://thephil.net - basic site but a few custom addons etc.
Concrete5 sites are fast on the right setup!
Don't forget to use online tools likehttp://www.iwebtool.com/speed_test... to make sure it's not just your connection, browser setting, plugin etc.
