These days, everyone expects sites to be super fast. For instance, Google’s LightHouse audit tool recommends that a page should load within 1.2 seconds.
Yes, 1.2 seconds sound steep, but what if your competitors heed that advice? They are likely to get better SEO ranks, and customer visits. (more…)
These days you can get a server from AWS or Azure in as little as 15 minutes.
And not surprisingly, many business owners now use a VPS or Cloud instance to host their website or business apps.
The trouble is, these servers are sold as “unmanaged” instances, and the burden of Server Management & Monitoring falls on the server owner. (more…)
As a server administration company, we often get support requests from website and server owners.
Recently we were called on to fix this error in a Magento 2 server:
SQLSTATE: Syntax error or access violation:1118 Row size too large. The Maximum row size for the used table type, not counting BLOBs, is 65535. This includes storage overhead, check the manual. You have to change some columns to TEXT or BLOBs
Magento is a popular eCommerce app for a lot of reasons – it’s secure, feature rich and super stable.
BUT, it has an Achilles’ heel – Poor Speed
The default settings in Magento is not optimized for speed, and pages can take up to 10 seconds to load. (more…)
A slow website does more harm to your business than good. Not only would customers abandon it, they may also share negative reviews with others.
We’ve seen scenarios where a single website slows down the entire server. In our server administration services, we often get requests to speed up websites.
