    SLOW loading pages Link to this post

    has anyone else experienced web pages loading slowly?

    We have built 4 sample sites now with Silverstripe and they all have the same slow page load problem.... not sure if this is a hosting issue or a silverstripe one.

    I did look at a few sites in the showcase and they also don't seem to load that fast either.

    Yep, we also noticed that the web page loading is a kind of slow ;-) We also tested other PHP-based CMS systems (like Typo3, CMS Made Simple) on the same hosting environement and they look like they would perform faster than SilverStripe.

    Probably it is due our hoster is using php as (Fast-) CGI module. But this is very common because only in this configuration you are able to protect files of other users in a web hosting environement.

    Are there some tipps to speed up the whole thing?

    Installing a code-cacher / optimizer worked great for us (we use X-Cache).

    Unfortunatly I'm not able to add such a 3rd party module to the hosting environment - I know asked my hoster if he has any plans to add such an accelerator in the near future...

    But in the mean time I'm interested what else I can do to improve performance... any suggestions?

    Well , with Sapphire being quite a powerful and complex framework , Silverstripe is performing a bit less than the alternative more simple solutions systems out there. This being said, I can't say that on our host , the performance is below par , or annoying.

    Only thing I can think of is using either an optimizer or a cacher .... If you really need raw performance , you might want to try out the Silverstripe static exporter (search the wiki for it) ......
