LAMP & Microsoft Stacks | SMX Sydney | David Cropley
Stacks generally serve internet pages. Lets find out how modifying stacks can make sites load faster, it’s all about speed.
- The IIS SEO toolkit is a great place to start with people using IIS, it will allow you to get a better understanding of your site from an SEO perspective
- Use viewstates ( a view state defines a particular view of a component. For example, a product thumbnail could have two view states; a base state with minimal information, and a “rich” state with links for more information or to add the item to a shopping cart) sparingly
- Postbacks(allow the communication between client side and server side) are not links
- Lamp is like penguins, lots of Harry Potter jokes, I think you have to be in the room to get it.
- Use GZIP to compress things by around 70%
- Enable mod_deflate
- supports log files for benchmarking
- Use memcached-used by Facebook and Twitter, can be used with MySQL and PHP, it is also scalable.
- Use the DB to cache pages that take a lot of processing
- Cache random operations
- Look at your conditional clauses for hints on what columns to index
- Regularly review
- flush out old data
A little technical but had some great info.
