What's the most effective way of optimising a Joomla website?
I'm not sure if my site is particularly large, details below;
- Files / folders 28GB
- Database 314MiB
When I take a backup of my site using Akeeba Backup, it's approx. 7.01 GB
My site isn't running slow, but i'd like to keep on top of it. I do have a lot of media files such as images and videos. I also have a few third party components installed such as EasyBlog and SP Page Builder.
I've tried to follow recommendations such as;
- compress css / js files
- optimise images (save for web)
- remove unnecessary components / plugins
- enable cache
Is there anything else I should be doing? In particular with the database.
Looking at my database there are a lot of tables prefixed
#__j2store - I don't recall ever installing this so presumably it came with my site template (Joomshaper). I can't see any way of removing j2store via the Joomla back end - unless I manually drop these via the database there's no way of getting rid of them?
I have installed Admin Tools Core for Joomla, this comes with a feature to Repair & Optimise Tables which I have ran.
