eZ 3.5 New Release: Runs at a terribly slow speed. What solutions are there for people on a shared environment?

eZ 3.5 New Release: Runs at a terribly slow speed. What solutions are there for people on a shared environment?

I have installed the new release (my first eZ install) and am most unhappy with the super slow performance speed ...

A few notes:

I run my eZ copy on a semi-dedicated server environment.
I do not have access to the php.ini file.
I do not have shell access.
My server has the latest versions of PHP (PHP5) and MySQL installed (CGI Mode)
My server also has the last PHP4 version installed (as a Module) but that will not be supported for very long.

Hardware stuff:

Pentium 4 CPU at 1.7 GHz
1024 MB RAM
40 GB Space
250 GB Bandwidth
Semi Dedicated Server

My question is, how can I speed up the performance for eZpublish?

I have been using typo3 for a long time now and there you have the MMTurck Cache Extension (Module) which you can install to speed up the performance of your page which works wonders.

I am bringing up Typo3 because, very much like eZpublish, the system is HUGE and takes up quite a large portion of resources as well which can slow down the entire system.

Any tipps are greatly appreciated happy.gif Emoticon

This looks like cache problem. Did you set right permission to var folder. You can also turn on DebugOutput in settings/override/site.ini.appnd.php

You can use turckcache with every PHP based system. ezpublish benefits greatly from it (I'd even say it's not really usable without).

Thank you a ton for the recommendations.

I do have another question though and I hope this is not too idiotic a question.

How can I get a php accelerator to work with eZ? Is this configurable within eZ or do I need to manually install the accelerator on my server? I do not have access to the php ini file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS: is there an accelerator for php that you'd recommend over mmturckcache for eZ publish??

Thank you in advance,

Okay, sorry for that question. I realise this can only be done by my webhost.
