    Since WP Update 3.4.1 WordPress is very slow Saving Post edits. Sometimes it takes several minutes for the edit to complete and return control to browser. The edit is saved and the post is fine… Otherwise there doesn’t seem to be any other MySql slow down. Just when saving post edits.

    Some of the things that i have tried are as follows:

    i have disabled a ton of plugins
    I have switched from child them to twenty-eleven.
    I have copied brand new install for wp-applications, wp-includes, recopied twenty-eleven theme to…

    I am not sure how to continue debug diagnoses process… please help.

    TY WP tribe,

    Have you tried:

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    i have done the fresh upload of everything from clean wordpress install.. as far as ftp reset… can i just create a uninstalled folder and drop the inactive plugins there without wordpress trying to read.. like a plugins-uninstalled folder same level as plugins folder?

    Yes. That’s how an ftp plugin reset works (although a Phpmyadmin one is even better).

    This what seems to work for me:
    GO TO wp-config.php AND ADD:

    define(’WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’);

    GO TO default-constants.php AND CHANGE:

    if ( !defined(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’) ) {
    if( is_multisite() ) {
    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’);
    } else {
    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’);
    GO TO default-constants.php SEE OTHER THINGS LIKE:

    @ini_set(‘memory_limit’, WP_MEMORY_LIMIT);

    @ini_set(‘memory_limit’, ‘256M’);

    create a PHP.INI file in the wp-admin folder with the line:

    memory_limit = 256M
