I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..
I will remove the signature...'.
But the iPage site is not my listed www link.
Trust me it doesn't load fine, it takes over one minute. Any thoughts on how to speed it up?..
Without the link so I can run a test on it, not much anyone can do to helpy ou speed it up. it could be how you setup the database and attributes, or a contribution is filling the sql database with tons of stuff, etc..
Check your server access and error logs, turn on sql logging in the admin area,..
We know what the problem is, the categories are loading via the index.php page, but we are using sts, so that is not necessary, is there a workaround for this?..
I don't have this one, I do have others. We will try this. Thanks for the heads up...
I ran some benchmarks using BTS, STS and none, on a database with around 500 products, and 50 or so categories..
BTS was fastest.
Closely followed by "none" (standard Oscommerce).
STS lagged way behind, by a considerable margin..
I'm certainly no expert with STS, but from my testing it looks as though the time lag is due to STS "caching" the page before displaying it..
I'd advise you to try the same database on a "normal" install of Oscommerce and see if there is an improvement..
We did find an issue this weekend in STS, where it seems to duplicate the category building..
Will check into this as well, thanks...
I have a iPage site that is loading really slow..
The problem is the index.php that seems to be making a query for every catagory..
Does anyone know of a workaround to keep this from making thousands of queries?..
Loaded fine with your domai link..
Now, for your signature, against the rules to list your iPage domain name there, also posting commercial advertisements (oscommerce hosting)...
