Jaxon has his Community Server tips and tricks (generally relating to CS skinning/CSS/etc) going strong, Keyvan started a CS tips and tricks section of his own (leaning more towards developers), so I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon and start a series as well, but geared towards CS site admins…i.e. how you can get your CS installation configured and keep it humming along smoothly (I may throw in some random tips as well…ya never know). Some of the tips (such as the one I’m about to post about here) will only apply to site admins who have full control over their site (IIS/SQL Server/etc), while others will be more general in nature. This will also kick off a new category called CS Tidbits (RSS feed is here) Enough chatter, on to the first tidbit!
The first tidbit is actually a pretty simple one to do, and I’ve posted about it before…enable IIS compression! You should see some pretty extraordinary performance increases when it comes to pageload times, plus your bandwidth will go down quite a bit. This guy did it and is enjoying the benefits.
