Common Pitfalls for Your Drupal Site, and How to Avoid Them

May 18, 2016 11:00 am

Drupal can be a resource-intensive system. Any moderately complicated site will generate a lot of database queries and use a fair amount of memory to build pages to serve to visitors. With some judicious tuning, however, Drupal can perform really well, and at scale.

In this webinar, Drew Webber, Principal Support Engineer at Acquia, will discuss some common pitfalls encountered by sites that struggle in the face of increased traffic. Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of:

  • The most common problems encountered when it comes to Drupal site performance
  • Ways of identifying performance bottlenecks on your Drupal site
  • How to avoid these common pitfalls and remedy these issues (often without writing a single line of code!)
  • What not to do when building and running your site
