I created a "customizables/config.php" file, with contents:

$config['app']['thumbs']['output_small_filesize'] = 1048576;
$config['path']['thumbnail_cache'] = '/home/www-data/';

And it just throws an error and shows the config file contents on the website

A PHP file needs to start with <?php on the first line.

Thanks Vlad,  you are awesome !

Is there a way to adjust thumbnail size (smaller) so the overview of a folder would load even faster ?

ImageMagick, if not already in use would make the thumbnails generate faster. GraphicsMagick is even faster.

Changing the resolution of the thumbnails unfortunately doesn't have any considerable effect on the speed.

Once the thumbs are made for the first time, then they load really fast next time you browse the folder.
