How to Speed Up Your Magento Site

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE TUTORIAL:

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #1 USE FLAT TABLES

By enabling this option in the back-end, Magento system will use category and product flat tables instead of the EAV type tables which speed up the site performance.

System ::> Catalog ::> Frontend

Change “Use Flat Catalog Category” and “Use Flat Catalog Product”
to Yes.

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #2 USE FULL PAGE CACHE

For enterprise edition, this is a built in module. But For community edition you will need to install a plugin for this. I recommend this plugin:

Page Cache – Full Page Cache(http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/page-cache-full-page-cache.html)

They got a very good support and the plugin is really great based on my experience.

This will make your e-commerce site much faster compare to a normal Magento caching system.

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #3 MERGE JAVASCRIPTS AND CSS

Another way to make you Magento fly is by merging Javascript and css external script. You don’t need a plugin for this as this is a built in features in Magento.

Just turn on the following settings in Magento backend.

System ::> Advanced ::> Developer ::> Javascript Settings
System ::> Advanced ::> Developer ::> CSS Settings

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #4 TURN ON MAGENTO COMPILER

If you enable this feature, your Magento site can speed up to 25%-50%.
To do this, go to

System ::> Tool ::> Compilation.

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #5 REMOVE LOG FILES

Massive Mysql database can decrease the performance of your Magento site. One way to clear your databae is by trucating these Magento Log tables.

log_customer
log_quote
log_summary_type
log_url
log_url_info
log_visitor
log_visitor_info
log_visitor_online

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #6 INSTALL VARNISH
This will definitely make your Magento website fly. Varnish is a web accelerator whose job is to cache any front-end content and bypass any PHP processing which will make your website 100x faster.

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #7 INSTALL AND ENABLE MEMCACHED
To enhance your Magento website page loads, try installing and enabling Mecache in your server. It is designed to cache all database queries which could lower down server resources and increase traffic.

HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR MAGENTO SITE STEP #8 USE NGINX INSTEAD OF APACHE

A light weight web server, Nginx is much faster and less resource hungry compare to Apache. One disadvantage is its a bit tricky to configure, but once you set it up, your e-commerce site will be so much faster and a lot more stable.

    Can you please confirm whether we can install both Varnish & Memcahed at the same time in our Server?
