WordPress being slow even in admin backend. (7 posts)

    I am wondering if there's a way to speed up my site, everything seems really slow as if I am running on a modem or something. My website actually runs faster than the wordpress admin pages but both are generally very slow...

    Have you tried deactivating plugin? Or switching themes?

    I don't have any plugins that I can simply deactivate, the ones activated are vital and in use. My theme was created from a sandbox theme so it's only custom, I wouldn't think it would effect my admin panel since the admin panel is not effected by the theme.

    since the admin panel is not effected by the theme

    The Admin area can be effected by a theme.

    And if you don't at least try deactivating your plugins, how do you hope to find out what is causing the slowdown?

    I know you're trying to help but you're leaving alot of things unsaid.. If plugins are the main reason that wordpress sites are slow, I will then attempt to deactivate some of them tonight. The way you make it sound is like "Duh how are you supposed to fix it if you don't deactivate a plugin" as if I'm supposed to know that the solution to my problem is specifically a plugin or something.

    I'd still like to know work-arounds that do not effect my template or plugins because at 2pm in the middle of the day I do not think it's an appropriate time to take down my site to fiddle with the modifications and plugins since I've already had downtime this morning from fixing a plugin.

    Thank you..

    No. It's simply that the single most common cause of problems - including reduced performance - is plugins. So basic troubleshooting starts by deactivating them (even down to renaming the plugins folder by FTP or resetting the plugins folder in the database), switching themes, checking/re-configuring permalinks etc.

    Troubleshooting is invariably a process of elimination. You start with the most common known areas and work through to the more obscure or more specific - depending upon what you do (or don't) find.

    As for the troubleshooting process "taking down", or impacting, on your site in the middle of the day, when do you think it would be convenient? If you feel that 3am is better, do it then. However, it is my experience that web sites are required 24/7, so there's no "good time" to do this. You either decide to fix it when you have the time, tools and expertise at your disposal.

    Or you don't fix it at all.

    Your attitude is not helping, I advise you to stop replying in my thread.
    Thanks.
