We have just recently upgraded one of our projects from 4.2 to 4.3, it is really really slow both on the back-end as well as on the front-end. It was the same thing with our 4.2 site too, it is really slow. We are using Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and there is only one site on the server presently. Our site is not a high traffic site, we don't get a lot of hits. I have read a lot of posts about keeping sites and making sites faster. I am looking for some direction geared towards settings in web.config file specially for Sitefinity.
We have made all the necessary changes we could on the IIS side. Can you please suggest some options that I can turn on/ set in the web.config file (caching sitefinity resources, cache) that can have an impact on the site load time pertaining to Sitefinity. Is there any documentation/ best practices for optimization in web.config file that I can refer specifically for Sitefinity. Can we do any enhancements just through the back-end of Sitefinity using the "Settings" interface. It has been a long struggle for us to speed up the sites.
