Support » Fixing WordPress » My site is so slow

  • I went to load my site today and found that it took anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute to load up. My site is
    I have never had a problem with the speed before. Its not my server either as I have a few other sites hosted on the same server and they all load within a few seconds.
    I’ve re-installed wordpress and also uninstalled some plugins that I thought might have slowed it down, but its just not got any faster.
    Even when I go to the admin back end of wordpress to make a post it takes an age to load.
    Does anyone know why it takes so long to load up and is there a solution to make it load quicker?

  • Are your ‘other sites’ running on a database also? It may just be a lag in the db. I’m going to be honest, WordPress out of the box is amazing. The only thing that will make is suck is your host

    @omg… Mostly true. But there are caching plugins for a reason.

    @glen: Try some of the caching plugins out there. e.g.:

    I moved the site to a new server to see whether it would speed up the site, putting it on a new server made the site fast again, so it has something to do with the server the site is on, but my other sites that are on the same server are still running at their normal speed.
    I’m going to try the caching plugin still, thanks

    I’ve been using wp-cache on my site for a while and it’s really great… just make sure your wp-content folder is writable to save you the headaches 🙂
