Need help with slow query


Recommended Posts


I need advice locating this query. I have searched and I can't narrow it down. I'm not a coder so I nee help making it more efficient.

[11] => select distinct p.products_id, pd.products_name from products p, products_description pd where p.products_status = '1' and p.products_ordered > 0 and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '1' order by p.products_ordered desc, pd.products_name limit 10

that looks like a bestsellers query, it lists the top 10 products ordered for the whole site


could be a bestsellers box, or a module on the home page


I do not use the responsive bootstrap version since i coded my responsive version earlier, but i have bought every 28d of code package to support burts effort and keep this forum alive (albeit more like on life support).

So if you are still here ? What are you waiting for ?!


Find the most frequent unique errors to fix:

grep "PHP" php_error_log.txt | sed "s/^.* PHP/PHP/g" |grep "line" |sort | uniq -c | sort -r > counterrors.txt

I want my shop to run as efficient as possible. At times, that query alone can take over 10 seconds to load. I have a large shop and the categories queries are already slow enough.




I will disable the bestsellers box to check if the page load time improves


Thanks to you both for replying
