Magento configuration and optimization

Out of the box, Magento will run without issue on our servers, but there are a few basic configuration options you should always ensure are working.  Make sure to review your Magento configuration if you are having performance issues, as it could turn out to be a simple toggle in your admin and save valuable developer time.

  • Enable all caches (System->Cache Management)
  • Enable flat products and categories (System->Configuration->Catalog->Frontend)
  • Disable and clear the Magento compiler (it does not run properly on PHP > 5.3)
  • Enable merged CSS/JS (this can break some sites)
  • Enable all caches
  • Deploy static files
  • Enable production mode + compilation
  • Enable the Varnish FPC instead of the built-in FPC
  • Disable merged CSS (can cause performance issues on some stores)
