Support » Fixing WordPress » Site Loading SLOOOOW or Not at All

  • Resolved dogstartutoring


    I run 2 WP sites–one is a blog/podcast and is running fine. The other, which is much simpler–just a static site with few images–has recently started loading extremely slowly…or not at all. At the moment I can’t get it to load period. Occasionally it seems to be fine but that is rare.

    I’ve tried installing W3 Total Cache and WP Minify. I’ve deleted plugins I don’t use. I can’t figure this out. Could it possibly be because I have a few audio players on a single page? That never seemed to be an issue before.

    Help, please?

  • Could it possibly be because I have a few audio players on a single page?

    Yes. Set to one post per page to check.

    Have you check your host? Maybe your hosting have some troubles. How do you load the admin page? is it slow too?

    Hmm…my admin page won’t even load. Any suggestions?

    Arie, my other site is with the same host as this one (Dreamhost), so I don’t think that’s it.

    UPDATE: I got in to the admin briefly before it locked up again and removed the multiple audio players from the page that has them. Still having the same issue.

    Not sure if this is related. I get this message on the W3 Total Cache panel:

    “It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.”

    Not sure what to do with that.

    Contact your host. They can best help with .htaccess related issues.

    Simply delete .htaccess file and let WordPress recreate it usually solve the problem. Be sure before you do that, backup the .htaccess. You may as well copy it here so we can check and find if anything wrong.

    And don’t forget if you are able to log in to the admin panel, deactivate W3 Total Cache first. You can reactivate it again after the problem solved, that would be better.

    Thanks, Arie. I’ll try it.

    Here’s the .htaccess:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    That’s the humble WordPress default .htaccess so I don’t think that is the problem.

    Well, I do think that it maybe a redirect problem. Not a redirecting loop, but the server couldn’t find which page should be loaded. So, my best guess is to deactivate the cache plugin and delete all the cache.

    Thanks, all. This seems to have been resolved!
