Setup & Speed

Hello, I have not had too much time to work but have noticed it seems to operate sluggishly - even on our high speed DSL lines. So far, we have not switched from using the built in database rather than SQL, which will likely speed things up. Even without that, I expected program execution to be lightening fast.

Perhaps we have not configured things properly, I know we still have a problem at the end of the check out process when it switches to the CC mode. The screen that pops up is missing graphics and is not formatted properly.

You can see what I mean by going to: http://www.railsnw.com/cgi-bin/ccp5/cp-app.pl.

Any suggestions on how to get the CC page to come up properly and how to speed up the program. A 20+ second processing time is exceedingly slow on a high speed connection.

Re: Setup & Speed

Hello,

regarding images - you have in HTML:
IMG SRC="www.railsnw.com/ccp5/ccp5/media/images/site/site_img1.gif"

while there should be:
IMG SRC="http://www.railsnw.com/ccp5/ccp5/media/images/site/site_img1.gif"

so it seems you have missing 'http://'
in your configuration (I suppose only)

check value for:
$url_media_path = "http://www.yourdomain.com/ccp5/media";
in your cp-app.pl file
I don't know more places where it could be


regarding speed - I am not sure
please try how it works on my server:
http://www.and.pl/sklep/pro/exe/cp-app.cgi

however this is 2x P III 1,13 GHz with 2 GB RAM and SCSI HDDs

Re: Setup & Speed

Dear Adam,

Thank you for responding, we will add the "http:" and see if that clears up the check out problem.

As for speed, your site is lightening fast. Are you using the standard internal database or are you using an external, such as SQL?

I think the problem with speed has more to do with Readyhostin.com than it does with CCP5. They stack about a billion customers to a server, no wonder things operate at a snails pace.

Eventually, we will switch to a dedicated or semi dedicated servicer. For now, we are stuck with Readyhosting. sad.

Re: Setup & Speed

Adam,

Thanks...your suggested worked! Now if only speed up the program. Obviously something is going on, as the program is generally quick. I do not know if it has something to do with over-used resources at Readyhosting or a install problem.

I will keep plugging away it. Getting the email working is my next project.

Re: Setup & Speed

Tom,

glad to hear there is 1 problem less :-)
as of readyhosting.com, they use Windows 2000...
so speed is almost impossible, I have Linux RedHat
and it is fast with MySQL and without it
definitely there is a problem with your host
not with CCP5

Re: Setup & Speed

The program was built to work fastest with MySQL or another RDBMS.  It will run in CSV only mode fairly quickly as well, we certainly didn't want to alienate most of our users, but not quite as fast as using a true SQL engine.  The issue you're having is definitely with an overloaded host.  The fastest machine we tested on was a RedHat 7.2 box with an Athlon 1.4 ghz cpu and 256 megs of RAM.  Pretty standard to low-end in today's market.  Granted the box wasn't loaded (load averages of .05 or less), but the basic splash page loads in around .20 seconds with that setup.

Re: Setup & Speed

Hi, I guess when I shop for a new hosting company I will be looking for anything BUT a Windows 2000 server, operating on a dedicated or semi dedicated server.

Thanks again for all the help.

Re: Setup & Speed

Tom,

when you will be prepared for dedicated server
take a look at http://www.datapipe.com
this is not advertising - I am just their VERY happy customer
and I know what they offer, they give you, always more than
you expect - this is what makes them my #1 in this industry
exactly as CCP and Nick are #1 in his industry

Re: Setup & Speed

We're very happy with the pipe at LinuxWebNet.  We've got several of our own boxes down there, but understand their virtual service is great too.  It's a really fat pipe.
