Easy Ways To Speed Up Magento eCommerce

Magento eCommerce is a beast of its own, and enabling it to be most efficient can require some tweaks that are not widely known that we would like to share with you. Below are two easy steps that will not only speed up your website, but increase its efficiency on your dedicated server.

Turn Magento Caching on (do not use while developing)
1. Login to your Magento Admin
2. go to System -> Cache Management
3. in the dropdown box, choose “enable” and tick all the boxes, then save settings.

Compile Magento
1. Login to your Magento Admin
2. go to System -> Tools -> Compilation

Always remember that speed depends on many variables, if your site exists on a shared server, then you may want to think about upgrading to a dedicated machine. If you’re troubleshooting your live site, always be sure to test the impact of every step you take, then proceed accordingly. If you’re in search of hiring someone to do this for you, contact us!
