Hello, Silverstripe download is very big about 300MB, is there a way to upload only the files and database that create and manage the CMS and website, in order to not overload the website with a full framework? Is there a minimum installation download only for the website and CMS?. Thanks.

@Jose Not sure the purpose of it but did you have a look at this module: https://github.com/silverstripe/sspak

@Jose The download contains a lot of data such as the git history. You're much better off installing using composer

If you can use composer, you get a cleaner install and it's a lot easier to add extra packages, etc.

A basic SS4 install should weigh in at around 70-80Mb.. that's the framework and CMS, etc.

Thanks @Karan Kumar and @dorsetdigital. Please understand I am new to SS, I am a designer with very little knowledge of PHP/MySQL. So I need the easiest way to deal with SS, I love how easy is to port a web design to SS, but is difficult to me to have SS with 3 level menu, and search and blog functions. I also need to install the blog package, so as per @dorsetdigital it is better to have composer, It is safe to install composer in a Centos 7 production server for shared hosting? Sorry if my questions are obvious. Thanks.

I always recommend that you set up a development environment (using LAMP/WAMP/MAMP, Docker, etc.) and run all the composer commands on that. You can then upload your site to the production server.

@vanny Google page speed tests are usually run on mobile connections, and India's cellular network is pretty slow (last I read into it a while back) particularly compared to the US. Maybe try running the site through Google's Test My Site tool which lets you try out connection speeds from different countries — https://www.thinkwithgoogle.com/feature/testmysite/

Thanks @dorsetdigital! Yes I like your approach, is safer, that means I can copy all SS local installation and paste it into the server including importing the database sql file?, is so simple?
