Images rendering/loading so slowly it's painful


Sep 09, 2017 01:42PM EDT

I've been using Koken for about 4 years or so. I'm updated to the latest version, on a custom modified Axis (1) theme.

I love the CMS and the layout/style of Koken, but the speed issues are terrible. My site loads images very, very slowly. Advancing through galleries I can often wait 5-10 seconds for an image to load. It is not my internet connection (150+Mbps).

According to my site settings I was using GD Bundled 2.0.1 compatible as the image processor. ImageMagick 7.0.1 also is available on the drop down. Neither seems to make a difference.

I'd like to stay using Koken but these speed problems are untenable. I chose Koken for the fantastic customization and backend CMS, but when it comes down to it, if things load so slowly a client won't even spend the time on the site to see anything in the first place.

Any advice before I am forced to abandon Koken?

Hello ,

As Koken is self hosted the first step is to contact your hosting company’s tech support to see if you’re exceeding any of their quotas or your server has some sort of resource cap you are running into. Also ask them what kind of error messages are in their logs.

Thank you.
