- 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.

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 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.
