I'm new to this forum, and also very new to virtuemart, so I hope I don't appear too ignorant.
A few days ago, the site I designed/am maintaining: http://www.gohd.com.sg
kept giving me: fatal error: maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded on [some line from some virtuemart file, always different for each error]
I have no idea why it said that, so I changed the php.ini file to make the maximum execution time 90 seconds. This has stopped giving me the error, but the site is really really really slow. Take a look.
In addition, when I have debug on, I get 700+ queries logged, and jos_session gives a huge, huge string. In addition, I have an equal number of legacy queries logged, which means there's 1400+ queries logged? I think it may be the categories that are slowing it down, but I've heard that sites with 10,000 products load pretty fast - I have only 1,000 or so products, and there's no reason it should be so slow.
I have installed some hacks before, and there's SEF on. I have also optimised all the databases. Still nothing.
Anyone? Would really appreciate any help. I'm using Joomla 1.5.15 with VM 1.1.4. I have uploaded the debug info in a text file to http://www.gohd.com.sg/vm_queries.txt
. The output is for the main page!
Thanks in advance.
