I'm running a WordPress 2.0.4 blog under Apache (FreeBSD) and MySQL. It works very well except for when I try to access the blog for the first time.
Whenever I access the public blog, it takes about 6 seconds to show the homepage (that is, the response time is very slow). After that, all of the pages start loading very fast. But it always has this lag time whenever I access it for the first time.
Other non-WP pages don't show this behavior, so I'm guessing it has something to do with WordPress' initialization.
I would really appreciate any help in order to get this fixed.
