Speeding up Drupal

Does Drupal feel sluggish? You probably feel the toll when logged in.

Test your site with a speedtest like Pingdom. It gives you a feel for how visitors will experience the site, speedwise.

If your admin section is feeling slow, try this:

  • Switch off the Update manager
  • Switch off the Overlay module
  • Switch off extra modules voor development
  • Switch off the toolbar module and start using administration menu
  • Tweak apache with the Keep Alive extension, it was already running on my servers
