I recently came across a post of Alledia about this new Joomla Cache Component.
And since I want you to have a really good performing website I checked it out for you.
It blew me away…
Point is that you can speed up your website by using the cache funtion of Joomla itself and thus gaining some speed in loading you pages.
This component is going to boost your performance (page loading time that is) not simple by 0ne or two percent… no you see loading times drop by double digits percentages!
But there are some things you need to know before installation:
- The speed gain is for not-logged-in users, that means the visitors to your site, not the members!
- Some Core files are hacked, but the installation makes backup files and there is an uninstall option
- You get a text “Powered By Page_Cache by Ircmaxell” under the Footer of you site, but for just $10 dollar you can buy a license file that takes that away… or hack the component code yourself, which is also okay by the developer (You got to Love this Guy..)
Installing the component
Installation of the component is pretty easy, you just create or copy a few extra files and change permissions on them before installation.
