The e-commerce.

index.php slow load

Recommended Posts

Hi, Mitchell here

 

I am new to OScommerce. Me and a friend have completed a website

 

www.topcomp.com.au

 

As you can see it loads very very slow. I came to the conclusion that its the index.php that takes around 6 seconds to load, and must load before everything else does.

 

Any help with this would be great. If you need further info please let me know

 

Thanks

First of all, enable GZip compression in your admin > configuration settings.

This will speed it up - but users with old browsers (IE3) won't be able to view your site.

 

Also, you're using PNG images. Convert to Jpegs or even GIF images to make them smaller.

Alternatively, ensure that your PNGs are "flat" - ie. all the layers are compressed in Fireworks when you save. This will make them smaller.

 

Finally, lose the banner.

There's no need for it and the code execution is unnessessary.

WRONG! They will be unaffected.
