The e-commerce.

Server seems slow. Optimization problems?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


My client has a oscommerce store and have around 1000 visits a day. His website is kind slow on the front end, but the admin side is very decent. At first, i thought the server is slow, but when I browse the admin side, it seems to work very good, loading pages fast. His oscommerce site is very heavy modified, so I am not sure some of the mods he have is bad code or not. The oscommerce runs on a VPS server which should handle this kind of traffic ok.


I also installed a fresh clean new oscommerce on this server too, and it runs fine. But I am not sure if it's because no one browsing it comapre to the live site.


Any experts here can point me where in the code i might look for optimization. What could possibly be the issue to slow down the website?


Many thanks

In my signature is a very good thread on optimizing websites. Other than that, honestly, I have no idea.
