Understand the default optimizations

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and Mac OS X) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). Learn more.

The Bitnami Prestashop Stack includes sets a number of variables for performance optimization by default. You can modify these to suit your requirements through the PrestaShop administration panel. Here’s a quick list:

  • Page templates are compiled only once and then cached. Modify this via the “Advanced Parameters -> Performance” page.

    PrestaShop Smarty configuration

  • CSS and JavaScript files are automatically cached. HTML and JavaScript files are automatically compressed for quicker transmission. Modify this via the “Advanced Parameters -> Performance” page.

    PrestaShop CSS configuration

  • Friendly URLs are enabled by default. Modify this via the “Shop Parameters -> Traffic & SEO -> SEO & URLs” page.
