Generally Slow

Post by rawmotion » Wed Jun 15, 2011 2:38 pm

I just installed Joomla 1.6 with sample content on my site hosted with godaddy. It seems that both the front and backend run really slow! It takes sometimes 30 seconds for most pages to load. Is something wrong? Is this a common problem?

Use the Forum Post Assistant to post your environment.

It's not usually that slow on a good host.

Nice to know how much memory you have available in php. 128MB should do.

Increasing this may help (Max. Memory Limit 32M).

Why are you hosted on windows? Joomla runs much better on Linux/Apache.

I just installed Joomla! to test it own on a host that I already have access to. If I use it in the future it will be on a Linux host.

How do I increase the max memory??

Set in php.ini or ask your host.

Ok my host says I need to upload a php5.ini file coded to allow for the increase in memory to the root of my domain.

Now, I cannot access the current php5.ini file on the host, obviously. It is located on the server in c:\php5\php.ini which I don't have access to. I only have access to my ftp area for my domain.

So my question is this: if I upload a php5.ini file to the root of my domain, will it just add information to the current c:\php5\php.ini, or will it replace it entirely?

In other words, can I create a file that only specifies the change in memory, or do I need to code an entire php5.ini file from scratch with all the necessary configuration elements in place. Will I mess things up if I upload a file that only contains memory specifications?

OK

I uploaded my own php5.ini file to the root of my domain.

The php file just looks like this:

Code: Select all

<?
memory_limit = 128M;
?>
This successfully changed the memory limit, but now no pages load. I get the following error:
Database Error: Unable to connect to the Database: The MySQL adapter 'mysql' is not available.
If I delete the ini file, everything works again fine, but the memory also goes back to 32M.

I think I need a more complete php5.ini file. Can anyone help?

Joomla 1.6 is not slow. Look at my blog eu-bloger.eu. It's 1.6

I doubt it's Joomla 1.6. I have a site that is 350k, and super fast. It depends on how you've set your cache, your server settings and where it is hosted.

Try enabling GZIP in the global config for starters, and reduce objects! I find this works well on Joomla.
