I am having a very annoying latency issue with my blog. This just started 3 days ago. I am using WP 2.06. I have not touched anything in my files, that I am aware of, to make this happen, other than make changes to the code within sidebar.php
The only plugins I am using are:
Adsense (but have since disabled)
Add New Metatags -active
WordPress Database Backup -Active
My server has since set my MySQL limit up to 1000 as of yesterday but in the 24 hours since then, I don't see that its made any difference.
I have changed my password from the ADMIN area 3 times but not sure this would have anything to do with it.
Here are the problems I am getting:
Problem connecting to Database Error page from WP several times a day.
Pages lock up
Taking many times 30 to 40 seconds to get to another page or post and sometimes longer to even get into the admin area for my blog.
Don't let it fool you. The navigation on the right side and up at the top are the problems as well as the admin area access on the Left. Even clicking on the calendar at times.
Images will not display quickly sometimes and this is not happening on other sites I frequent.
I have had 8 other people, friends, co-workers and family test this out on their own computer and again same thing happens after about a minute or two of browsing.
And yes I have read and read and read all of the what it could be but would appreciated it if someone could look at my site and source code to see if there might be something going on. Part of the problem is that I am such a novice at this, that I am completely lost.
I am at my wits end. Why even bother to direct visitors here if once they get here they leave due to this problem?
Some of you will immediately check for Valid XHTML from my website. Yes I know there are 36 remaining errors, however its mostly for the TARGET attributes, however I do not want those links to open in the same window. Don't have a workaround for that.
Basically any of those remaining erros have to be the html code for each of my affiliate banners and not much of a workaround for that otherwise they won't work period. It's what was supplied to me.
I have adjusted my sidebars for more customization but again I do not see any errors that might be affecting
the latency / load issues here.
My website is http://www.spaparazzi.com
Again any help you can provide me with would be most appreciated.
