Magento is a powerful e-commerce online solution and has a bunch set of great feauters. How to optimize magento perofmance for free using built-in magento features?
I recommend the following action steps:
Keep magento caching enabled
You can find this setting at System > Cache Management
Merge js and css files to decrease amount of simultaneous requests to your server
Setting can be found at System > Configuration > Developer
Enable compilation of magento source code
Setting can be found at System > Tools > Compilation
A few notes:
- Please note, that some extension can conflict with compilation mode enabled and can throw an error.
- Each time you install new extension or modify existing file on your magento – it’s strongly recommended to re-compile source code again
These steps can save some server resource and decrease page load time.
