Support » Installing WordPress » Server move and a super slow site

  • Resolved Trevor T

    (@trevor-t)


    I recently created a site on a Dev environment (on a different server). Made the move to a new server and came accross two issues.

    1) The site is rediculously slow. Could it be that there are calls from the database to the old server location? How would a person fix this?

    2) On the dashboard I get an error saying “Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public

    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to /mnt/w0002/d48/s23/b0333b55/www/mysite.com/wp-content/backup-db”.

    It is in this location so I am guessing a similar issue with things pointing to the wrong loacation.

    Any insights would be appreciated.

  • Hello,

    for the first thing :

    1) The site is rediculously slow. Could it be that there are calls from the database to the old server location? How would a person fix this?

    Try to make some changes in your site then go to your database and see if theres some changes if it’s ok that means your website is not slow because there are calls from the database to the old server location.

    Trevor,

    Have you changed DNS for your domain? If not, and if you use the same siteurl, then probably wordpress redirects to old server.

    @arkgroup, It’s actually a different URL. The site existed on one address, and an updated site was made on a dev address. We then moved the entire dev site to overtake the live site. Uploaded the database from DEV and updated the wp-config file.

    @amohamed, I did notice that new pages are writing to the database (and wp-config is set to use the correct database)but after scanning the database there are references to the DEV site.

    I appreciate your help!

    @mohamed – also confirmed that new images uploaded are also going to the current installed location.

    Database siteurl is the proper address. But a lot of the other info makes reference to the old site.

    It maybe have something with the server or it’s config where you host your website !

    Can give some information about it so we can help u more
