Performance Tuning

Joomla! Performance Tuning

Everybody wants a fast site. But this requires lots of technical knowledge. Why not hire the experts, so you can focus on webdesign instead?

Having a faster website gives your visitors a better experience, gives the site a higher ranking, and perhaps costs even less in terms of hosting expenses. But how to get there? Yireo hosts numerous tutorials and extension that help you to optimize Joomla! to the max. But you can also hire us to do this complex tuning.

ScriptMerge configuration

With our ScriptMerge extension - that mainly focuses on merging and compressing JavaScript and CSS-stylesheets - you can increase the speed of your Joomla! site and get higher SEO rankings. But ScriptMerge is a complex tool and it requires tuning to get things right. We can help you get the best out of this tool.

Optimizing the Linux environment

Other extensions like our WebP extension and GraphDat plugin require the installation of some Linux tools before they get useful. We have Linux experts that can do this with ease, so that you can focus on the webdevelopment instead.

MySQL tuning

If we determine that the database is a bottleneck, we can help you tune MySQL. For this, root-access to the server using SSH is required. We will run down the current performance using various shell-scripts and tune the MysQL configuration accordingly.


PHP-execution can be optimized by using a PHP-accelerator like APC, XCache, ZendOptimizer+ or memcache. We can help you determine which PHP-accelerator is the best, and install it on your hosting environment.

Monitoring tools

Optimization is done at a specific time, but your environment is changing by the minute. To determine visitor-peaks, the weight of running cronjobs or knowing which optimization is best over a longer period, monitoring tools are vital. We can help you installing NewRelic as well as other monitoring tools like Graphdat and Nagios.

A small note on our focus

Yireo focuses primarily on building extensions, and not on custom work. We are happy to help you out where we can though. Because of our focus on extensions, the custom work we usually pick up are small short-term projects only - assignments that require an expert vision and guru knowledge.
