How to get fastest ThirtyBees?


  • Global Moderator

    One of the major reasons why we want to migrate to TB is the speed in the front- and backoffice. Are there any tipps how to configure a VPS?

    Is it normal that “Performance Setting” redirects to module section?


  • administrators

    No, it should not be redirecting to the modules section. It should be the normal performance page with a few tweaks and some more caching adjustments.

    Hm I dont know why this happened. Now it’s working properly. What about the speed in general? I know you are speed-god :D I would appreciate a blog later from you, where you explain to normal merchants, how they can optimize best. It doesnt hurry, but I never liked how prestashop handled this kind of things. In their blog, they talk a lot “bla bla” but no real tipps for merchants.

    Fast has so many components and is relative actually. You have fast for the php / server side of things and you also have fast for the frontend side of things. Which one are you looking for?


  • Global Moderator

    Now I focus on backoffice. We do all our work with PS respectively TB in future. We don’t have any erp system or so. That means a fast system is important. Imagine you need to change every single product. It take ages to load and save… I know you improved already a lot. But I thought there is maybe a best pratice you can recommend.


  • administrators

    This would mainly be based around how you have your server setup. I would recommend the latest version of php that your site can run, Opcache, MariaDB for your database. There is not much that can be done for back office optimization really, it depends on the server a lot. Have you looked into store manager or store commander?

    I haven’t looked deeply into them. In general I am not a big fan of using additional software.


  • administrators

    Some times it is needed. It creates a different flow that is faster since it does not depend on an external webpage load. Make all the changes in a program and then push them live.

    Yeah but new software takes time to learn, have costs and probably some bug issues. I think for small to middle sized shops, it should be possible to only work with backoffice. I see a some little steps, which can help a lot. For example a “save & next” button or a bulk edit to link multiple products to a category. What is your opinion about that?


  • administrators

    I agree that the back office can be improved with things like that, but we have to maintain compatibility for time. If we made all of the changes we wanted right off the bat then everyone would be stuck with new software with only one theme and no compatible modules. That is why it is important for us to put together a roadmap and follow sem versioning so users can see when features are going to be added and which ones will have to be delayed a while.



  • @wakabayashi you should really try store commander, it saves so much time when editing products. Yes, it costs a little extra but we have been using it for 18 months without a single problem. It saves us hours every day.

    I completely agree - Store Commander is completely solid and worth every penny.

    @spidawebs - maybe now that thirty bees is officially released we should start hounding SC to support 30bz.



  • @crosscut01 yes, good idea, I’ll drop them an email today and see what they say



  • I’ve just had a reply from Store Commander and this is what they said:

    We do not yet support Thirtybees but we will probably in the future months.
    And I have added you to our internal ThirtyBees list so that we can get back to you about this.

    So good news that they are planning to support TB - let hope all the other developers are going to do the same.



  • Nice going, spidawebs! I hope store commander and other developers get involved sooner rather than later.

    Glad to see it, looks like it will happen, here’s what I got back from them:

    “We have already check Thirty Bees and we added to our list of development, but we’re not gonna have a Store Commander for Thirty Bees just yet. We have plenty to do already, but it’s noted :)


  • administrators

    Honestly its more than likely already working with it. The database structure is the same, so I cannot see it having issues.



  • I know most of the PS 1.6 modules will already work with TB, but my concern is that in the future when TB moves on from 1.6, unless all the PS developers also support TB then there will be a lot less modules available. So it’s good to know that the main developers are already looking at TB and plan to develop modules for it in the future. I feel a lot more confident now about switching. I just need to be sure there will be support for our Amazon and eBay modules in the future as they are critical to us.



  • Thanks Lesley, it would be great if it works out of the box.

    I completly agree with this statement. TB needs to get the size, that developers can’t leave outside. I can’t wait to have the own addon store. There is much room left, to do it better than PS :D
