There are several ways to increase the performance of your store. Some ways require technical knowledge, whereas other ways are available to everyone.
In the administration panel, go to Administration → Languages → Manage languages.
Delete the languages that you do not use:
For the performance to increase, you must delete the languages, not just disable them. If you need a deleted language later, you can switch to the Available tab and install it again.
Optimize the database to increase performance: that way you reclaim unused space and defragment the datafile.
This requires technical knowledge.
Changing the caching type might increase performance. To do it, complete the following steps:
// Cache backend // Available backends: file, sqlite, database, redis, xcache, apc // To use sqlite cache the "sqlite3" PHP module should be installed // To use xcache cache the "xcache" PHP module should be installed // To use apc cache the "apc" PHP module should be installed $config['cache_backend'] = 'file';
filein this line of the code:
$config['cache_backend'] = 'file';
with the necessary variant.
Don’t store the cache in the
database, unless you know what you’re doing—tables with the cache often grow large and get broken.
Save the file.
file cache backend is used by default, other available variants are:
sqlite, the sqlite3 PHP module must be installed on your server. To use
xcache, the xcache PHP module must be installed. To use
apc cache, the apc PHP module must be installed.
