for the first, check:

 

adv. parameters > performance tab in your back office

check if:

- force compilation is turned OFF

- cache is turned ON

What type of hosting are you using; shared ? dedicated? As per vekia's suggestion you have done force compile and cache on. Have you installed something or done any change in settings?

Okay, Let's started with some tips - Step by step process:

 

1. SEO & URLs: It does help when caching the pages. Compared to using page names with lots variables which are hard to cache, it is better to cache .html or .htm pages
This can be done directly from section Preferences / SEO & URLs .

 

2. Smarty cache: Now start with the exact settings for properly caching the pages. First go to Advanced Parameters / Performance.  check the following options:

  •     Never recompile template files
  •     Check Cache
  •     Do not open console

 

3.  CCC (Combine, Compress and Cache): As it was before deactivated, we only need to check:

  • Use CCC for CSS
  • Use CCC for JavaScript.
  • Keep HTML as original
  • Keep inline JavaScript in HTML as original
  • Check Apache optimization
     

4. Ciphering: usually leave it as by default.

 

5. Caching: If possible, try using memcached, APC or Xcache, if your hosting service does not offers this, you can use the normal File System cache. The next is the CDN option, you can also use a CDN for speeding up and caching even more.

6. Implementing browser static cached file for prestashop: Its a fancy name, but its really just some .htaccess rules with some expire and caching headers.  See the code:

 

1<ifmodule mod_mime.c>
2 <filesmatch ".html.gz$">
3   ForceType text/html
4   FileETag None
5 </filesmatch>
6  AddEncoding gzip .gz
7  AddType text/html .gz
8</ifmodule>
9<ifmodule mod_deflate.c>
10  SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI .gz$ no-gzip
11</ifmodule>
12<ifmodule mod_headers.c>
13  Header set Vary "Accept-Encoding, Cookie"
14  Header set Cache-Control 'max-age=3600, must-revalidate'
15</ifmodule>
16<ifmodule mod_expires.c>
17  ExpiresActive On
18  ExpiresByType text/html A3600
19</ifmodule>

 

Open the .htaccess file inside your document root of your website and add the above lines just under your existing .htaccess rules.
With this you set a timeout of 3600 seconds on each resource request from your website, on next request of the same page, the user will use the pages from their browser cache and he will also be happy that the page is loading faster.

What is your exact PrestaShop version.

 

in 1.6-1.6.0.6 native PrestaShop forces all javascript to bottom (significant improvement of above the fold page render)

in 1.6.0.7 and higher, this is option bo-->advanced parms-->performance (move javascript to bottom)

 

for all 1.5 shops that want to make above the fold super fast and 1.6.0.7 and higher that cannot run native PrestaShop 'all' JavaScript bottom

Module JavaPro: 5 star rated never once fix required, I test so you don't have to!

Hi,

 

One of the easiest and the reliable method to enhance the prestashop performance would be to install "Apachebooster".

Its an integration of varnish and nginx and thus caches the dynamic contents as well and make the website much faster for the end customers.

Please read more about the plugin at : Download Apachebooster

Hi there,

In your case, you might face with an old version of Prestashop, so upgrade your Prestashop could be a good solution. If you are using Prestashop version 1.3, you can upgrade Prestashop from 1.3 to 1.6 or upgrade Prestashop from 1.4 to 1.6 if your Prestashop is version 1.4 and upgrade Prestashop from 1.5 to 1.6 if your current prestashop is version 1.5. Hopefully you will solve your trouble as soon as possible! 

Good luck!
