I have installed a a fresh Magento community 184.108.40.206, with no extensions, and no customization to the theme, on a 2 core VPS. I have created about 20 Categories / sub-category names, and only added one configurable product, with 3 simple products attached to it. I am not using any 3rd party cache system. I am utilizing the rwd theme. It's really slow on the main landing page. And even slower moving from one category to another!
I am wondering what would happen to it, if I add 30,000 products? Why is it so slow? Any recommendation on how to speed this thing up. It's crazy.
Note to people who placed this question on hold: I am being told to be more specific about the question, the question is too broad. The question is being placed on hold!!! Believe me if could be more specific about what’s wrong, I would have solved the problem and fixed it myself, and not be here, or if I could afford to hire an expert, I would have done so and not be here again to seek help from experts.
It is a simple question and I don’t know how to get more specific about it? Brand new installation of Magento, rwd theme, with ZERO products added, on a VPS server, with 2 core processor and 4 gig of ram. Regardless of how many sites are on the server, Magento should not crawl like it does.
Basic guide line topics should be: - What can be done on Back-end on the Magento side? What extension could be added? What can be optimized? … - What can be done on a server? Add more ram? Add more processors? Add server side caching modules? …
Regarding VPS vs dedicated servers. If you read the following comments, some people are stating that, they have hundreds of Magento sites running on VPS! How are they doing it?
So Fabian, Amit, liyakat, Keyul & Marius. I don’t know how to get more specific? I need help from experts like you to lead and teach how things are done.
That’s why people come to stackexchange!
