This is a follow up to a previous post. After some earlier trouble with performance, I reinstalled by blog on yahoo web hosting. I disabled most of the plugins, etc, so that I could be sure what the cause of the problems was. Things proceeded fine. I managed to get to import my blogger posts using the import utility. Things started slowing down a little (very little) when I started changing all my old posts from "uncategorized" to specific tags using the WP "manage" page. Somewhere along the way there, the perforance went into the tank. Its taking me 105 seconds to load the dashboard from the "site admin" link on front page. I only have 43 posts (imported about 50 or so but deleted about 7 or 8). Under the manage menu when I try and change months, it takes about a 100 seconds and then I get a blank page. After this I can't access my blog till for a bit.
I am using WP RC2 (which is what Yahoo is installing by default)
I know I am repeating myself, but this is very frustrating. Any explanations? MySQL issues?
