I have an e-commerce site and am finding it very slow, both on the admin side and the shop side (please excuse if I am not using the right words, but my knowledge is very limited).
My web company said I need a dedicated server to speed it up, which I am going to look into, but I am really struggling with the admin site as when I try to update products I often get a 404 error or the following error message:
exception ‘PDOException’ with message ‘SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 2006 MySQL server has gone away’ in /homepages/
Does anyone know what i should do, it is a shopping site and I really can’t have it so slow that people get bored.
Would very much appreciate any help, advice and comments.
Thank you very much
