-I've disabled all the plugins
-I've loaded up the default theme
-and still have this problem.
Clicking around the back-end, most links load up fast. However, clicking the 'plugins' link takes a consistent 60 seconds to load.
I've tried different monitoring apps to get some sort of info, and the closest I've gotten is from YSlow.
For instance, here are the results from clicking the edit post link: http://i.imgur.com/4OPZa.gif
And here are the results from clicking the plugins link:
fyi, the front-end of the site is blazing fast. It is just for a few links on the back-end.
Any ideas on what's going on?
