Support » Plugin: WordPress Block and Stop Bad Bots Plugin StopBadBots » It’s slowing down my WP admin

    It is helpful but I found that the plugin is drastically slowing down all pages on my WP admin. Once deactivated the load time is back to normal, please improve this aspect of the plugin.

    Hi Adeel,

    1) First of all, add your IP to the whitelist.

    2) Check the free memory
    Dashboard => Memory

    3) Disable another firewall if you have.

    4) Check our troubleshooting page:
    http://siterightaway.net/troubleshooting/
    (check for Javascript errors and plugin compatibility)

    5) Check with your provider if they has a Firewall (as Cloudflare).

    Cheers,
    Bill

    Adeel, this not just a problem for WP Admin. Install Query Monitor plugin for WordPress and you will see why StopBadBots slows down your site. In WP Admin you will find Query Monitor in the top menu bar. Click it and then on Slow Queries. Depending on the size of your site you will usually see a couple of very slow StopBadBots queries.

    I’m the developer.
    I will install Monday the Query Monitor plugin, check and let you know later.
    Talk with your hosting company if you need a faster server.
    We have one server with more than 30 WordPress sites and around 69 non WordPress sites and run without problem. We have many users running many sites.
    We have versions for non WordPress, Joomla and docker.

    Hi Adeel,

    We ran the plugin Query Monitor and all looks fine in our server.
    Anyway, we made some improvements to try to help you (and all users):

    1) We included one control to let you keep the visitors log table with only one day. (or more). Look at plugin settings page. Remember: you need keep WordPress cron job system working.

    2) We created 2 new indexes on that table to let the mysql work easier.

    3) We improved that query.

    After that, we feel the query run faster.

    In this moment, we can’t remove the visitors log table, because we need that to control the number of visits and block bots.

    Please, check the recommendations we made around 3 days ago (above).

    I hope this new version can help you.

    Marry Christmas, happy holidays.

    Cheers,

    Bill
