Visitor Maps and Who's Online
Slow Dashboard load (2 posts)

    Wanted this primarily for the who's online features. However, since I installed it, the Dashboard takes a really long time to load, like 15+ seconds. Not sometimes, but every time I try to load it. It does load eventually, but just hesitates a long time before doing so. Other pages seem to load normally.

    Any idea what is going on?

    Check that your server specifications are well enough. RAM, CPU load etc. Many sites are on shared servers with 100's of other sites on one server. I have had to change web hosts because of this. I am happy with HostGator.

    Some wordpress installs run out of available memory because it is set
    too low in PHP.

    Try one of these methods for increasing the amount of memory a
    PHP script may consume (most people just do #3)

    1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
    If your line shows 32M or less, try increasing it:
    memory_limit = 64M;

    2. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M

    3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
    Increasing memory allocated to PHP
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

    4. Talk to your host about their recommended solution.
