Howover, when I visit my mangeto website, it let me feel this website is slow. Why? because a lot of images to load? How to solve performance issue?


There are so many ways to optimize your website.

  • Use flat catalog model
  • Minify js and css
  • Optimize the images
  • Use gzip compression in .htaccess file, etc.

You can use an online tool to analyse your website. For example - https://gtmetrix.com/

Magento 2 is slow when cache is disabled and it is in developer mode. You can do below two steps to make it faster

  • Enable cache from admin (System > Cache Management) if disabled.
  • Execute command at root of your Magento 2 installation to move it to production mode.

php bin/magento deploy:mode:set production

  • 'php bin/magento deploy:mode:set production' What is this using for? I need this command even though I set it in admin panel? Where do I put this command? Using what tool to enter this command? – AngularFan Mar 31 '17 at 22:34
  • This command will set magento 2 to production mode and you can execute it by using terminal if you are using mac or Linux. But if you are using windows then it can be done using cmd. – Ravinder Apr 1 '17 at 2:03
