    Made the upgrade from 2.6.5 to 2.7. It seemed that everything went well - plugins are working correctly.

    But: WordPress is running very slowly now - before the upgrade a page had about 1 second to load - now it takes more than 5 seconds.

    I dispabled several plugins - no change.

    The admin pages are very slowly as well.

    Any help?

    Same - maybe worse - problem here. After upgrading (I tried with a fresh installation as well) on local host, WordPress (both site and admin panel) just hangs till it stops loading, showing a blank page. It loads correctly (but very slowly) once every 100 or so retries. Also, I noticed that Apache started randomly crashing when loading WP2.7. I'm on Windows XP, and all other sites (including old WP versions) on my pc work well as always.

    i had the same problem, as soon as i go to the admin... it takes minutes to load, but after disabling statspress it was alright again

    i had a similar problem with the 2.7rc1 without statspress though

    Yes, please, continue discussion about slow version 2.7 here in this thread.

    Other topic about downgrade in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/224595 I set to "resolved".

    Is there a known problem for WordPress 2.7 with this server combination:

    PHP Version 5.1.6
    Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat)
    MySQL Client API version 4.1.18

    I found a blog which also upgraded to version 2.7 and where the pages are loaded quite quickly.

    The server info of this installation:

    PHP Version 5.2.6
    Apache/2.2.9 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.7a mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/

    Why was the Trac Ticket 8590 referenced above changed to Closed status with a resolution value of Invalid?

    I really don't know and don't understand why my report was declared "invalid". Perhaps it's a possibility to "fix" bugs?

    I suspect it was closed as invalid because "slowness" is too vague to be a workable bug, and the trac is not a place to discuss potential resolutions.

    Have you disabled all plugins?

    In my first posting I wrote that with version 2.6.5 I had loading time of about 1 second - now 5 and more.

    Now I made a fresh installation - without any plugins and with Kubrik default Theme.

    Loading time of the first page: 5 and more seconds.

    I have the impression that there is a problem with the server - but I don't understand that 2.6.5 was fast, 2.7 slow.

    What did change in 2.7?

    Quite a lot changed in 2.7.

    Unfortunately not every combination of PHP etc. can be tested so it could be possible that you have hit upon some combination that has a problem, or there could be some other underlying issue.

    With your fresh install did you remove any .htaccess files?

  17. tin68
    Posted 7 years ago #

    The fresh install has no .htaccess file.

    And the tip which I get all the time: "Change your provider". It's a little bit to simple. Sorry to say - but I am quite disappointed - I started with my blog in october 2006 and never had such a problem...

    What I noticed with my days of using wp 2.7 is that when you first started using it it was really fast but on that process wp 2.7 somehow s0metimes fast and s0metimes really slow.

    And I noticed that when you're experiencing the slow 2.7 just try to clear private data, like the cache esp. the cookies and it'll be fast again. But it's very inconvenient though.

    I thing wp 2.7 have some issue on cookies, not that sure but that is what I noticed.

    Same thing here,

    VERY VERY SLOW after upgrading to 2.7

    I upgraded because of the promiss of better performance. Speed dropped to about 1/10th. Terrible.

    Cheers, Berend

    We are searching for the problem - seems that version 2.7 have special needs for the server - or other way round: the server has a special setup which WordPress can't handle...

    Will report as soon as I have more information.

    One thing I seem to have noticed quite often with the slowness issue is that it is often related to those with MySQL 4.x. I wonder if MySQL 5 would be an improvement?

  23. tin68

    Thanks for your input - indeed my provider runs MYSQL v4.1.18 on the server.

    sorry but with my etch and mysql 5.0.32-7etch8 I had the same problem, sometimes the page loads in some seconds and next moment 2 minutes...

    It's very strange...
    mysql-server-5.0 5.0.32-7etch8
    apache2 2.2.3-4+etch6
    libapache2-mod-php5 5.2.0-8+etch13
    php5 5.2.0-8+etch13

    I'm using a windows machine and all previous versions of the wp dashboard have loaded quickly for me. But since upgrading to 2.7 it has slowed down considerably. It can take up to 60 seconds to reload the dashboard. More often it is 40 or sometimes 20 seconds. But it never gets faster than that.
    I've tried deactivating all the plugins and engaging gears. But neither of these processes has any effect.
    The public part of the blog is OK.
    If anyone has managed to sort this problem I'd be very grateful.

    Did you try the patches here - at least the last one?

    Please add me to the growing list of dissatisfied users of 2.7. The first beta I tried was much better. The last before final started this abysmal trend of the dreaded slows.

    It sometimes takes FIVE minutes for the Edit page to load. This is unacceptable.

    We hope this is fixed soon. It is on the WP side, not the server side.


  28. It sometimes takes FIVE minutes for the Edit page to load. This is unacceptable.

    No, I'm sorry, but just, no.

    No page can take five minutes to load and it not be a server issue. Period. Five minutes is ridiculous. So ridiculous, that your server is misconfigured in a way that causes something to block for ridiculous timeout periods. Heck, default PHP installations won't even RUN for that long, they cut out after 30-60 seconds.

    In other words, the only way that you get a multi-minute page load is that something WordPress is trying to do (contact another site, do a DNS lookup, could be anything) is causing your broken server to sit there, waiting for an answer that will never come, over and over again.

    "Slowness" is not a specific enough problem for us to solve. Nobody here can likely help you solve it either. And it's not a problem with WordPress.

    You need to find a) somebody who knows servers, b) somebody with access to your specific server, and c) somebody who knows PHP and have them debug this for you. Because something on your server is badly broken, but it could be any damn thing so there's no way for us to narrow it down. You have to narrow it down. Once you know what the actual problem is, THEN we can judge whether or not we can do something about it. Even then, it would be, at best, a detection and workaround to servers with your specific problem, not a problem in WordPress itself. The problem still would need to be fixed on your server.

    But until we know the problem, we can't even work around it. And if you can't tell us what the problem is, then we have no way to magically guess WTF is wrong with your box.

    That's just how it is. Sorry.

    If this is unacceptable to you, then I suggest that you switch off WordPress to something else. Not that it will help you any, really, but hey, worth a try.

    Wow. You represent WordPress? That is terrible marketing sir!

    I have been a loyal WordPress user for years and have had no problems until this issue in 2.7 that results in incredibly slow page loads. Something in the code is changed that causes this. Our server was not changed and worked perfectly fine with the most recent release before 2.7. We are running the most recent version of php and mysql, FYI.

    I hope that a solution is found quickly. Suggesting that users "switch" is just very sad and quite surprising.

    Sorry, that's the old "game" - my provider tells me that there must be something wrong with WordPress - you are telling us that it must be something wrong with the server - period - other word: a blocked situation.

    To switch the server or to switch the program is not a solution in my opinion. My goal: To find and solve the problem. But I don't have (root) access to the server and I have only little skill in PHP.

    Yes I know, to find a problem one must have a lot of information, as much as possible. But it is not so easy to give such information - to test software and find bugs in not all users daily business.

    On the other side: If you have a lot of feedback about "slowness" of version 2.7 there "must be something"...

    [BTW. Sorry, English is not my native language.]
