LiteMage

Magento is a great ecommerce solution, but very slow. LiteMage Cache is the world's fastest full page caching solution for Magento, designed specifically for Magento.

Magento is the most popular e-commerce platform on the Internet. But its modularized architecture and flexible configurations come with a cost: more than 4 million lines of PHP code and 2 million lines XML configurations. This overhead makes Magento resource hungry and leads to performance issues.

LiteSpeed introduces another level of caching for Magento known as LiteMage, in simple terms LiteMage cache specifically focuses on boosting the overall performance for the end user during pre and post exposure to your store without the need of expensive hardware or multiple servers.

Activating LiteMage for Magento 1.X

1. LiteMage cache can only be used on our Stealth plans →

This guide is only to be used for Magento 1.X, if you're using Magento 2.X and above please follow this guide

2. Make sure you disable all 'Full Page Cache' extensions – since these will interfere with LiteMage and may cause issues. Examples of these extensions include 'Extendware Full Page Cache'

3. If you are using Magento Compilation (System → Tools → Compilation) then you should disable it first before installing any Extensions.
