I just finished up the next osC Book update – ‘How To Make Your osCommerce Faster‘ – in this eBook I show a number of methods that will speed up your osCommerce store.
Some of the changes are very simple, some are more advanced. This morning, I installed a brand new osCommerce RC2 and managed to get the page load time down from 1.375 seconds to 0.563 seconds with just a few cut and paste changes and a couple of Admin changes – that’s a page load speed decrease of just about 59% – and that is on a standard installation of osCommerce – if you have a larger osCommerce store, you should see even more startling results!
In addition to the excellent speed increase, the changes mean less calls to the MySQL database which is always a good thing.
The contents of the eBook is very easy to follow and I can say for sure, that even if you only make a couple of the changes in the eBook, your store will run faster and smoother.
So, if you want to make your osCommerce speedier – and therefore more pleasing to your potential buyers, have a think about purchasing the eBook – you might just learn something you didn’t know before.
And the price is set at just £3.99 (about $7) – not too much to pay for a more pleasing website I’d say. www.oscbooks.com
