I'm having major performance issues with a site that has 7000+ pages.
Specifically, I am getting php timeouts when logging in as an Administrator and trying to the view the Pages.
From the client perspective the pages are loading really fast (running on a dedicated server).
I've been working with the hosting company to make sure everything they can do to tune the server has been accomplished. They have optimized both Apache and the MySQL database.
The server has 8gb of memory.
Yet, with all of this, when logging in as Admin, it takes about 20 seconds to actually get into the backend.
Often, if a second admin tries to login they will get a php timeout just logging in.
I'm really not a server guy so other than the advice that the hosting techs have given me I am at a loss as to how to improve the performance/responsiveness for the Administrators.
Any help or tips would greatly be appreciated.
