Admin Performance Issues with 3.2.1

  • Hi,
    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.

  • are you using %postname% as your permalink setting?

    My permalinks are set to:

    /%post_id%/%postname%

    When did this start happening? Are you using any type of SSL certificate or settings? Strange how only the admins are being affected. Wondering if it’s a theme or plugin related.

    When the site launched it was fine for the first 2 days. Then the first server crashed because of resource issues and the site was moved to a new server at a new hosting company.

    No SSL certs are being used. The theme is Canvas from Woo Themes.

    The site is only using 4 plugins, once of which is Akismet.

    With the permalinks set starting with post_id, are there any known issues with WordPress not handling a medium to large number of pages?

    Not that I know of, but the most pages I have on any of my sites is around 2,000. The issue was that you needed to use a custom setting that would start with a number like a date (Year, Month, or Post ID, etc.) But that it would best if it was a combination like /%post_id%_%postname%/

    But your pages are loading good now, right? It’s just your Dashboard that’s taking awhile to load?

    Yep – pages are really fast. It’s just seems to be the admin area. Logging in as admin takes about 15-20 secs, then anything you do in the backend is extremely slow.

    The hosting tech guy suggested I install a caching plugin but I really don’t see how that is going to help the Administrators?

    They also haven’t confirmed there are any disk IO issues, so I’m not convinced a caching plugin would help.

    I was also wondering if it is possible if some of the WordPress files got corrupted when the site was moved somehow???

    Most caching plugins are designed to help speed up the site viewing for users. So I believe you’re correct there.

    That’s possible. Unless you edited any of the core files (everything except wp-content and wp-config.php). You should be able to replace the core files from a fresh downloaded copy. **Backup your site first**

    I’m having similiar issues, only with pages. Runs out of memory, I have about 5k pages. Works with no plugins, but as I activate them (doesn’t seem to care which ones) it will break. Was actually working better on shared server then dedicated. Any one have any ideas to fix?
