Project Description

we have a prestashop 1.6 site.

the site is loading very slow, about 10 seconds. The main reason is TTFB.

The site is on a dedicated server, but the server needs lot of fixing, because basically it has not been upgraded in last 1.5 years. For example it is still running PHP5.6, but we need to upgrade PHP7 only if its face to do so.

So need to change MYSQL database to innodb

You also need to configure ssl on the site

The main goal is to get the site loaded under 2 seconds.

Basic things like minify javascript, etc is already handled by prestashop backend, but probably a good cache system like NGINX need to be installed.

Overall i would need your opinion and your detailed plan on what you plan to do before we can start the work.

Ideally i would want to start the project right away and finish over this weekend
