Magento 1.9.1 Porto theme
We have had perfomance problems for the last few days. Today, when I tried to re-index - I got the following Error:
504 Gateway Time-out nginx
I remember we had problems last time the hosting installed Nginx and things improved once they removed it. They don't want to unistall it this time though (instead they want access to the Magento Admin panel so that they can reprodruce the problem which will be difficult because it happens intermittenly). Is it safe for me to remove Nginx myself? Why is it that it is causing problems for us? Anything we can try to fix this would be helpful.
I didn't explain things correctly...the re-indexing while inconvenient is not the problem! What I'm looking at more is the increased load we are experiencing which may or may not be related to Nginx. I am almost 100% certain that the last time we had Nginx running - we had all kinds of serious problems (high load = slow Magento websites as a result) and no apparent benefits. I don't think we need Nginx, do we? I would much rather get rid of it...
