Below are a few steps you can take to optimize Drupal to allow it to run with more speed and more efficiency.

Enable Caching

To enable caching in Drupal, log into your Drupal admin page and go to Site Configuration > Performance.  Then make the following changes:

  • Under Caching mode: select Normal
  • Under Block cache: select Enabled

Click Save configuration to save the changes.
