Okay, I have tested the rules (drop tables and created a view) in Joomla 1.6.3.
Respect for the inventor of this rule.
It works like a charm.
My new Joomla site very slow. I think because I use to many components.
My old site, still running, is on vbulletin and I want to migrate everything to Joomla.
So I purchased all components I used in vbulletin for Joomla. A blog, gallery, reviews, forums, real estate component, community builder etc.
The migration was going very fast and all content is transferred. Users are able to login so this was done well.
Only, the Joomla site is very, very slow.
I activate GZip and this saves some time. But still.
I read in the forums if there are too many components installed in Joomla, everything is slowing down.
My forum, this contains the most content, and is the most important thing on my site, was very slow.
So I created a fresh Joomla installation into a sub directory only for the forum. And now the forum is quite fast.
The rest of the site is still slow.
My hosting provider is on plesk. And plesk do not allow the same username for 2 different databases.
I created 2 subdirectories with test installations of Joomla 1.6. Both in same database, only different prefix. Jos_ and tst_
I drop the tables, and created view rules. And this works.
Now the question. If I split up my site in more Joomla installations, each with its own db-prefix and install some components in each installation. But all in the same database. will this improve the performance on the site? Or is it better to create more different databases with in mind that users can’t be shared.
Let me try to explain, the site is slow because too many components use to much recourses or is the mysql database to slow for all these components. Or are there too many files if there are too many components.
I hope someone can give me some wise answers.
