we have just started using Contribute 3 to allow an external
contractor to administer our webpages. However for both us and the
contractor the synchronization times for opening a page and
publishing a page are very slow - around 50 seconds to open a
document and 50 seconds to publish it. Our contractor reports that
these times are even slower for them.
We have broadband internet access at 1 mb/s Our site is
hosted on a fast, responsive server - normally FTP loading a page
to our webserver takes about 1 second once the initial logon has
been established - even though we are based in Spain and the host
server is in the USA.
We have set up contribute to intereact with our webserver
through secure FTP
We have set the permissions initially to review pages that
are modified by the contractor before they go live.
Has anyone with experience of using contribute 3 got any
specific tips to speed up the synchronization periods to make
administration of our website pages quicker?
