Slow site problems


Recommended Posts

I have installed MS1 and was running the default site and experiencing very slow response. I removed category count, enable gzip (9), added indexes to the database as suggested in several other posts, and tried to enable cache. I created a folder in my web directory structure and chmod to 777. I get no error message, however no files are created either, even after I add categories. I removed everything from the database and still found that the main page takes about 25 seconds to load. If I dump a ton of images onto an html page, the page loads fine.


I am confused. I hope that if I can ever get the cache to work, my response issues will be solved. If anyone has any ideas, I am open.

I don't see how ebay could actually take 41.76 seconds to load even on the fastest connection.

Oh I also just found out that for meta keywords you should only use up to 1000 characters. I am assuming google would mark you down if you use more.


I am using around 1600 :( I gotta cut some stuff out.
