Joomla Speed and Security Optimization

Budget $250 - $750 USD
Bids 12
Average Bid $402

I have developed a number of Joomla sites but the latest one I've created is running much slower than many of the others I have developed before. The site is running on a dedicated server and exceeds all the requirements for Joomla. I'm running a few newer components such as K2 which seems to be the main culprit and the lack of documentation on K2 means I'm in the dark as far as speed optimization and security goes.

Quite simply, I am not technically savvy enough to tweak joomla and the server to reach the speed I would like to see. I could certainly perform a lower level of tweaks based on community suggestions but since this site will be seeing a great deal of traffic I want it to be optimized to a higher degree than I can provide.

Additionally, I need someone proficient with site security in relation to Joomla to ensure that the site is locked up tight. Preferably I would like the person that does the speed optimization to handle the security as well. Basic SEO would seal the deal but that is also something I can handle on my own. I mainly want the URLs to be a little friendlier for servers than they are with the default Joomla install.

The development site is located at [url removed, login to view]

Please provide me with your qualifications and experience with Joomla, speed optimization, and security. Ideally, the winning freelancer would perform quarterly maintenance to ensure that the site is in top shape. I'll perform the day to day maintenance but I want someone who can cover me and double check my work. Please also take a look at the site and feel free to use any debug tools such a Yslow or firebug to get an initial feel for problems that may be remedied.

Please quote me your hourly rate and what amount of time you estimate would be required for initial debugging and optimization. The metric for the success of this project will be the speed of loading time and I'll perform random security checks to see that folder permissions and server ports are as they should be.

I have worked with alot of different programmers in my time of web work... NONE could compare to this team of awesome individuals... I would rate a 12 easy but max is 10... I really couldn’t be more pleased with the work of this team. The ethics and integrity displayed were beyond my expectations. Though the project was intricate and extensive, they worked tirelessly to meet deadlines and took the project on as their own, doing whatever it took to ensure that their commitments were met.
