Support » Fixing WordPress » Blog Has gone SLOW


    My site now loads at 54 seconds per page. This started to happen about 3 weeks ago. It is not my server. I host 3 other blogs and they are loading at normal speeds. I deactivated all of the plugins and took out all of my stat tracking code. But still very slow.

    I noticed on Firefox the bottom left corner it says transferring data from… Could my database be to large or mysql be the problem?

    It was doing it in 2.1.3 so I updated it to 2.2 and no help.

    Also to note I did create a discussion board from my host server with mybb, could that be the reason of the slowness?

    Please help I’m losing subscribers.

  • – Did you make any changes before the site srated going slow?

    – Anything in the webserver’s error logs?

    – Have you run an Optimize on the database recently? (That’s a suggestion by the way.)

    – Your footer is showing a total of 44 queries to display the front page. That’s a lot I would think. May want to try the built in cache:

    *Add define(‘ENABLE_CACHE’, true); to a new line in your config file.

    *Add in a cache subdirectory under wp-content and make it writable by the webserver.

    – Four different video players on your front page. Each one of those has to load. Taht’s a bit as well.

    Hope this helps,

    please excuse me this is all new to me.

    How do I run an optimize on the database and where would i put the enable cache code on my config.php?

    Great suggestions. You have any links on how to do that?



    OK i added the code and it is still slow… How do I optimize it?

    I know this is basic, but do you have akismet enabled?
