Too many attributes? Store too slow
I have searched for a few days, and found some help, not not enough for this issue. My load time for product pages is approx. 9 seconds, way too long.
I am on v1.3.9h
My site is http://tinyurl.com/6r9v7cm
I have done the jquery cache module, that helped a little.
I have done the recommendations from this thread that I could. http://tutorials.zen-cart.com/index.php?article=21
I have the advanced shipper module
Based on advice from my zen cart expert I moved from httpme to a VPS (level 3) on Hostgator.
I have optimized database
I have optimized all my images
and purged debug files
So the attributes I have (and they all seem necessary to collect the information I need.
Screen Charge (radio)
Product Color (dropdown)
Mixed Colors Breakdown (text)
Ink Color (dropdown)
Metallic ink (radio)
Art Charge (radio)
Print Design Front side (dropdown)
Print Design Back side (dropdown)
Extra Options (checkbox)
Attached Art file (file)
2nd Attached art file (file)
Text for imprint area (text)
Delivery Date (text)
All of this information is necessary to actually produce an order. I don't know if I could combine any of them, (don't see how)
The steps done above have not gotten me to a usable speed.
I think I may need an Apache administrator who is truly expert in setting up VPS accounts. Don't know how to do that.
I have to think there are other sites that have a larger number of attributes that have made it work.
