  • Speeding up Magento with APC or Memcached – Tutorials – Magebase – We often hear complaints about how Magento is slow and performs poorly. Developers know, however, that performance is relative and that we can do a number of things to speed up a Magento site. This article will focus on configuring and using APC and/or Memcached. We have a resources section at the end of this article with links to more performance optimization techniques.

    The options obviously also depend on the specific hosting arrangement. I will assume for the purposes of this article, that you have control over your hosting server and are able to install the necessary add-ons and make configuration changes to Apache and PHP. If you are on a shared environment, you may have to check with your hosting support if you can apply the tips from this article. But, you know that you should at least be on a VPS if you are running Magento.

  • Speed up Magento with simple config tweaks – At Ionata we’ve been using Magento for quite a while now and the more sites we added, the slower our server seemed to become. Magento is quite a big chunk of software and can take up a lot of resources. However after doing some research and carefully tweaking our server configurations, we were pretty amazed to find performance gains of several hundred percent only by changing some settings.

    In this post you’ll find a summary of settings that can boost the speed and responsiveness of your Magento installation. Optimisation can be done for PHP, MySQL, Apache and Magento itself.

  • Apache 2 Basic Configuration on Unix-Like Systems | Nettuts+ – The Apache server is a service that runs in the background, waiting for requests from clients connecting to the ports it listens to, in order to take action. Apache either responds to those requests, or leaves related notes in its log files. Its behavior is controlled through its configuration, using what is known as directives (among other things). We’ll discuss the most basic directives in this article.

  • Nginx+PHP(FPM)+MySQL+Memcache+eAccelerator on Debian6 | Qi Yang – I recently rebuild my linux image on Linode, so I have to reinstall the LEMP stack again from ground. Last time was probably more than a year ago, with the help of many tutorials from google. So this time I decide to write what I did step by step for my reference in the future […]
  • Magento caching, APC, eAccelerator Memcached, files, sqlite, Vanish, what’s the … happen? | Alex Paradise – Magento is slow! It’s how start most of the article about Magento cache optimization. Yes, Magento is slow and this because of the way the code is written, extreme object oriented. Stackoverflow say “It is written in an Enterprise Java idiom” and there are right. Anyway, we can’t change anything about it and in one side that let us lot of flexibility.
    So, Magento IS SLOW! And what’s can we do? There is many thing to do, many, many. But the most important one is to work around the cache. I am searching for a cache solution and found so much different stuff like APC, eAccelerator, memcached, tmpfs, varnich, lighthttpd, nginx and so on… I will try to explain the different possibilities if found while my research and finished by the one I will implement[…]

  • » il sito dell’Associazione Calligrafica Italiana – […] Nel settembre 1991 a Milano, un gruppo di calligrafi fonda l'Associazione calligrafica Italiana. Da allora il programma dell'Associazione è cresciuto con successo anche grazie ai contatti mantenuti con altre associazioni calligrafiche all'estero (in Europa e in America) garantendo così scambi di informazioni e soprattutto la possibilità di avvalersi della collaborazione di insegnanti di riconosciuta competenza. In questi anni l'ACI ha sicuramente ottenuto successi e risultati. Oramai la calligrafia è praticata anche in Italia, sono state organizzate mostre e avviati contatti con biblioteche e scuole[…]
  • Rajiv’s blog – I was in charge of scaling Dropbox for a while, from roughly 4,000 to 40,000,000 users. For most of that time we had one to three people working on the backend. Here are some suggestions on scaling, particularly in a resource-constrained, fast-growing environment that can’t always afford to do things “the right way” (i.e., any real-world engineering project ;-). If people find this useful, I’ll try to come up with more tips and write a part 2.
