Site optimisation for a newb?

Postby stigzler » Mon Jul 09, 2018 5:20 pm

Hi folks. I've potentially got a complicated setup. My site is very sluggish, and can't figure why despite trying lots of things.

I'm serving form my Windows Home Server 2011 via IIS.

I installed Joomla, PHP, WinCache and MySQL form the IIS manager Web Platform installer. All OK

I've enabled Gzip, also installed JotCache and enabled (tried different combos of joomla default cahche and jot chache enabled - can't see any discrenebale difference, but cant find advice on whether two sould run together).

Also using JCH optimise.

I ran a diagnostic via GTMetrix on one of my pages (http://magoarcade.org/jmain/index.php/issues). There are some suspicious culprits in there, and I don't know what to do with them! Here's one screenie:

some other 404 errors that I don't know how to fix (in cache and K2):

and this is what has me really worried:

It looks like the template's "variables,mixins,forms and wells" are causing quite a hang on page loads alongside other probelms?

however, I have no idea how to fix this. Any ideas?

I'm not sure it's the server (although could be mysql??) as my dokuwiki installation on the same domain is nice and zippy: http://magoarcade.org/dokuwiki/MagoDokuWiki/doku.php?id=software:typextra:start#fine_tuning

Sorry - bit of a newb!

First make this site really work, u don't have content, you have not friendly urls etc.
But the best start is here:

Thanks but done both of those. Think the problem maybe more specific.
