    How long does your wordpress admin panel take to load areas such as pages and menu and theme options? Mine takes averagely 7 seconds? My host is iPage. How long does your one take and how what host do you use?

    localhost: instant
    mediatemple last week: about 10 seconds (it felt like)
    mediatemple this week (after cleaning old plugins, cleaning database, etc): about 2 seconds (it feels like)

    There's more and more hosts catering to wordpress sites, and using SSD's for database and servers. If you're serious about your wordpress site I would recommend (1) making sure wordpress is clean, (plugins, themes, database size, etc) (2) if still slow find a better hosting provider!

    & always factor in: your current internet speed speedtest.net, the distance you are from your hosts server farm, etc

    I can't say for certain what did 'the trick' to restore the expected speed but this is what I did:

    • re-installed wordpress (re-uploaded / replaced everything except /wp-content/)
    • deleted unused plugins
    • deleted unused themes including all of wordpress's twentyx themes
    • deleted revisions
    • deleted unused users
    • remove widgets from dashboard
    • replaced plugins with better ones (replacing "Contact Form 7" with "Gravity Forms", replaced "Facebook Sidebar Widget" with "Facebook" etc)
    • deleted all spam comments
    • increased php security, and took a second look at hardening wordpress
    • manually searched the database and ftp dir's for anything that looked too large or out of place, etc.
    • reviewed access logs to see who's doing what
    • reviewed analytics to get a gauge on traffic and load times (multi-site)

    all and all it took about 10 hours, but I noticed a huge speed bump. All of the above would fall under "good maintenance" and I've now incorporated most of that into my weekly routine.

    important note: i also backed up everything before i started, files and database, incase I messed up.

    also I searched "Server Speed Test" and there are some tools out there that you may want to consider testing your host.

    I might just do that, anyway I can save all my theme settings and stuff, do I just save the theme file on my filemanager? I am currently on iPage, In about 30 days or so will be changing to GoDaddy, or HostGator. (Most likely GoDaddy, because their support is better for uk residents )
