Magento Compiler Mode

This article refers to a beta-ish feature of Magento Community Edition 1.4.2, and therefore the specifics may quickly fall out of date. Proceed will all due caution

There’s a performance improvement feature of Magento that exists in this weird pseudo-beta state. There’s no exposed interface for it, but it does ship with the core codebase and is in wide enough use that’s it’s worth mentioning. I’m talking about the Magento “Compiler”.

(It’s been pointed out to me on twitter that the compiler interface is located at
System -> Tools -> Compiler. We regret the error, and offer as defense HEY LOOK OVER THERE! That was close. Ahem. [awkward silence]. This article still has some useful tips for dealing with the compiler via the command line )

Magento Import Catalog Products A Horror Story

Posted on September 6th, 2014 | Posted by admin

It’s been so many days i have been spending my time trying to figure out how to import products using CSV in Magento.

I recommended client to go for better server and as a result we moved to VPS. But that didn’t help. Hosting company was so generous to work along with me to figure out what was actually wrong. They also spent many hours and haven’t charged for VPS yet and I am free to use the server as I need. But I am not that good in server settings, but learnt a lot along the way
