Hacks: Improve your site speed with php_speedyPosted by: sroccidenteon 2008/4/12 2:20:00 11096 reads I don´t know if this will work for everyone, I just want to share what I experienced with this code, I´m not by any means any expert or so, but if work for me perhaps it will work for others, other wise just let me know what do you think
To increase the speed of my site i just do as follow:
I use php_speedy, upload to my xoops folder install it and just include the suggested code to my index.php and it reduced the http request by 300%, correct me please if I´m wrong but from 83 request to just 22 and the average front page load time from 76.57 seconds to 28.49 seconds in a 56k connection is a good improvement,of course nothing is perfect and I had to sacrifice an slideshow, for one or other reason did not like php_speedy.
I check the speed gain with http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/index.html
download php_speedy from: http://aciddrop.com/php-speedy, the exact link for downloading is this one: http://aciddrop.com/aciddrop/download/php_speedy-0.4.6.zip
1. Download and UNZIP the PHP Speedy package into its own directory (if you haven't already).
2. Point your browser to the PHP Speedy directory (that you have just created)
