Support » Fixing WordPress » My site loads so slowly can anyone please help?

  • My website ( which is made using wordpress, loads so slowly and uses so much CPU power that most hosts have suspended the services for it.

    Could anyone be so kind as to please look at it for me and let me know what could be causing this and some possible solutions to help it run better?

    Thanks in advance.

  • What plugins do you have installed and enabled? What generates your thumbnails?

    Plugins with poorly written sql can kill a system. Generating thumbnails on the fly can kill a system.

    Unfortunately I am no expert so have no idea on what is causing this!, I just dont want to be suspended from yet another hosting company!!

    It may sound painful, but this is the only way. You have to enable each plugin one by one, and look for the one which is using up a huge amount of resources. Sometimes, some plugins are the culprits, and this is all down to plugin’s author.

    I’m going to guess that the resource over use is caused by multiple plugins.

    The ones to take a hard look at are the ones that do stuff on the front page. For example, a plugin that generates a history of comments that uses unindexed queries is very bad (just an example). Actually, any query executed for every page that uses unindex queries is very bad.

    It might be possible to ask your provider to help you narrow down the search. Ask them if the problem is mysql related or something else.
