Speeding up Your Opencart Store

Since OpenCart is the best and most used system for online store creating, we decided to give you a few tips on how to increase the speed of OpenCart.

The speed of your online store depends on the number of products and categories the system needs to calculate every time the site is loaded. To increase the speed of your online store you need to rewrite some of the files in OpenCart so that the system does not calculate the products every time.

In OpenCart 2.1x and above version there is an Option in the Admin to Disable the Category Product Count which will dramatically increase the Speed. We had recently done this for a customer of ours with an average load of 9.2s and now the load is about 1.2s. >:¬}
