Joomla : Improve Site Performance

Joomla : Improve Site Performance

1) Enable Joomla Site Caching

Open the Joomla Administrator, select the Site menu, then Global Configuration, then System. I’ve configured caching with a 15 minute cache life.

For sites with data which changes infrequently, use a higher time.

2) Enable Apache PHP/HTML compression

Edit the .htaccess file in the root of your Joomla Website, modify the IfModule mod_php4.c section to include the line ‘php_flag zlib.output_compression on’ – for example:

php_value max_execution_time      120
php_flag zlib.output_compression on
