Hi guys,

Currently, I am in the process of setting up cPanel/WHM on VPS for hosting e-commerce websites such as Prestashop. And I've been running into issues with load times for the pages of the vanilla test websites of 4+ seconds for everything from product pages to simply text dominated.

At the moment the settings are:

mbstring.detect_order = auto
mbstring.encoding_translation = on
mbstring.func_overload = 0
mbstring.http_input = auto
mbstring.http_output = UTF-8
mbstring.internal_encoding = UTF-8
mbstring.language = Neutral
mbstring.substitute_character = none

I am wondering whether these settings are appropriate or if they are incorrect and what changes are needed.

Also, I am wondering whether or not getting errors such as:

TECHNICAL ERROR: unable to update address
Error thrown: [object XMLHttpRequest]
Text status: parsererror

Are connected to a misconfigured Mbstring or something else.

Thanks in advance!
