I have been moaning about the performance speeds and loading times for my website and nothing I seemed to do hrlped.

It seemed that the bug in the opencart software was the nucleus of all my trobles.

It insisted on doing a category count every time you clicked on a link and with nearly 30, 000 items in hundreds of categories this was destroying the available resources.
I migrated from a shared to a dedicated server which brought more issues into equation as it was now not pointing to the right server.
I enacted a very kludgy repair but it didnt help much, although I could now see the database.
Then there was problems with the admin panel, and again a quick and nasty patchbto the config.php file resolved it.

I then found out about the bug and did an upgrade to the software thinking this would fix the problem, but it did not help.

A corrupted db on badly patched software with server pointing issues and a partial upgrade had all taken their toll.

I decided that it would be better to wipe it out and start from scratch..

So, bravely, I killed the lot.

Downloaded and installed the opencart software (latest version with the fix), intalled vqmod, then created a new MySQL DB a:nd attached that to the store. Added the various extras I had purchased and uploaded the csv file.

Hey presto...

Page loading in 2 seconds, not two minutes.

It was brave of me though, I habe used plesk before and my db skills are very rusty.

All in all though I am pleased with the result.
