Magento Website for 'Recessionista's Closet' –Recycle Fashion Store
The client approached us with a requirement of decreasing the page load time of his existing Magento based ecommerce site.
Recessionista's Closet was created to give fashionistas across the world an outlet to shop, sell, and recycle fashion. The website was taking more than the expected time to load and so have decided to do a thorough analysis to sort this issue; as well as to determine and rectify other issues of the site.
Project is based on the Magento community software. We have reviewed and asked to the client to change some server configuration. To speed up the website we have followed some of the instructions that Magento suggests. Let’s discuss them here:
Installed PHP accelerator like APC, ZendOptimizer+ or Xcache
Enabled Apache KeepAlives
Increased memory_limit to 256M
Increased query_cache_size to 80M
Tuned PHP realpath_cache
Enabled Gzip Compression in htaccess
Compress output, use zlib.output_compression or mod_deflate.
Used a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for parallel transfer of static content
Compiled MySQL from source instead of your OS’s package manager
