3 Ways Magento Installation Can Go Awry - Image 1

It's not enough to have a Magento store; you need to understand the platform better to deliver results. There are chances you might end up doing all the wrong things, while tweaking your Magento website. Magento works on PHP5/MySQL platform, which is easy to install on your server. It offers decent scalability and ensures good performance. You cannot scale the performance as soon as you have installed Magento. You will need to work your way through Magento before you get the performance you have set as your goal. Here are 3 ways in which you can make the installation go awry

Server Configuration
Magento requires a server that supports both PHP5 and MySQL for it to perform. When installing Magento, to ensure that the server is properly configured, you need to keep in mind a few things.

  • You should never attempt to install Magento on shared hosting. The reason being, Magento requires a lot of system resources, which makes it impossible for the platform to survive on shared hosting. You need to install the platform on a dedicated hosting.
  • It is important to understand that php.ini affects many aspects of the Magento store - performance, memory limits, security issues etc. PHP accelerator is essential as PHP is the interpreting language, and it requires to process heavy codes. With the accelerator the performance will not be affected

If either of these things is not taken care of, the installation can go wrong,

Caching System
When Magento is tasked to process a normal request, it consumes data in bulk, which can slow down the performance of your store. 15% of Magento works on XML markup. Whenever you load a Magento page, your application processes the XML file, loads the memory and processes the block of information, thus adding to the load of your website. When you request instances for third party services, you are lowering the performance further. It slows down further when you include queries that include interpreting the PHP codes, as Magento is a database specific platform. This is why configuring caching is very important to your store. Magento has installed cache at every level, and they are all stored in specific files. To improve performance, you can even introduce caching within the database.

Coding Issues
Optimizing your code is essential if you want an optimized store. You will need to instill efficient codes. This is to improve performance, and works just as good as caching will for your store. You need to understand coding in Magento to ensure you don't make mistakes and damage the code. Always keep the store updated with the latest version of Magento. Follow the architecture principles laid out by Magento codes to ensure proper coding. Transparency in codes will ensure perfect installation and workable platform.


Conclusion
It is essential to ensure that your server is proper configured and the performance of your store is enhanced to match the needs of Magento platform. Coding should also match the caching requirements to improve store performance. Hire dedicated developers to customize your Magento store while ensuring the installation is up to the mark.
