I think to speed up magento use amazon s3 for image hosting, make separate js files, optimize the mysql database and make sure you are using very powerful hosting solution.

I would be interested in buying this if I can see some unbiased recommendations.. I see that it got good reviews on its site, but you never know these days.  Anyone use this?

I’m also interested to know who tried that?

As for Mysql cleanup, this extension can be useful (didnt try yet) :

It would be a good idea to serve your static content with Nginx.

Thanks for all the tip Stuarts.

I just thought I would let you know that for step 14 (Compressing CSS Files) to work I had to add the contents of the .htaccess file to the httpd.conf file.
You will need to add a new <Directory> in your <VirtualHost> since changing AllowOverride to none.

Mine looked like this:

</IfModule>
</Directory>

<Directory /home/user/html/skin/frontend/default/default/css>
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .css
php_value auto_prepend_file gzip-css.php
</Directory>

</VirtualHost>

This improved the speed of my site significantly.

Once again, thanks alot for all your work.

Regards,

Jack

Yes,

I did mean instead of creating the .htaccess file in the theme css directory.

Apologies for not making it clearer.

See here for a script that automatically builds an apache configuration file out of *all* of the .htaccess files found in the webroot, avoiding security holes, n00b mistakes and headaches.
