That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..
Just curious, what is the URL? Want to to see a store with 20,000 products!..
Admin -> Configuration -> My Store -> Show Category Counts (set to false). That won't speed it up though. Might be your host or network. But I've not seen a 20,000 product store. Show the link, we are all interested...
I have a 12,000 product store and everything was fast until I started to forward traffic from my old shopping cart. Now this cart is getting 2-3k visitors a day and it's sooooo slow. I put this on it's own server because I thought it would demand some resources, but it is still too slow..
I even optimize the database every morning, but it only helps a little..
My iPage website is at: www.tpub.com.
Store is at: www.tpub-products.com..
Yey... Now I'm going to go kick myself because caching was turned off...
Please could you shed some light as I still have an admin iPage site that is slow when viewing the categories pages..
There was a previous post about a new iPage site with a very large number of products and slow admin within the last few weeks..
The poster solved the problem and all was well. I did a quick search for the thread but no luck. I suggest you spend some time searching, the search function here is a little obtuse...
Found it! I remembered that he said "minutes"..
For you prompt response I am on that post and will let you know how it goes...
Hi there AlanR.
I have read the post already and unfortunetly I am not too sure on what my setting are for myphadmin. Myswl server is on a shared iPage hosting server and I don't really have any access to the main files itself though I could put in a php.ini file but not sure what to put in...
I have just added a large amount of products to my site. It is now a slug, very slow. I havent been able to fix it as yet. I am trying to find where I can remove the product count feature. In ms 2.2 it doesnt seem to be in application_top.phph as some1 told me. If some 1 could help me on this and has any tips I would be extremely grateful..
Have you managed to find out a solution as I am also experiencing the same problem too...
