    Slow PDF download from server

    Level 1
      Hi All, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask such a question so if it is not sorry for it.

      We have a Website which is hosted on a single server (We don't need more as we do not have to much users) and this Website contains a huge load of PDF documents which size vary from 1 mb to 85 mb. Even if the server is not overloaded with user's requests the PDF download is very slow. We are trying to find a way to make it faster. I tried Optimizing the PDF but it only reduce the filesize of about 1.5%. I'm also thinking of using Server Side Caching for the most popular PDF documents.

      Does anyone have any Idea about possible solutions, or does anyone ever faced that problem ?

      I know that we could split our bigest files but that implies a lot of work too so we are trying to find another way.

      thanks for any Idea.

      Alex
