Turned cache off completely - now site much faster!
Previous tests revealed page load times took upto twenty seconds, sometimes not loading at all. Now most of the pages load upto five times faster, loading in aprox 4 or 5 seconds.
So what gives? (as the Americans would say) Surely the cache functionality in the cms should make the site run more quickly?
Has anyone else expeienced this?
It seems like the problem was in hosting as sometime it doesn't load. But now you can try to put the caching on & check whether it makes your site more faster.
I haved already spoken to the hosting company (Heart Internet) and they say there are no problems.
I've tried a variety of the cache settings and the best one appears to be turn the cache off.
Anyway thanks for the input, much appreciated
If supported I find these can help speed up your site, sets server side caching and compression
