Support » Installing WordPress » Slow Sites with 2.1

  • Ok I installed the new 2.1 version on my blogs via fantastico and the two that I upgraded are mega, mega slow! I don’t know what’s wrong, the older versions are fine just 2.1 is killing me!

  • I am having the same issue with my blog–takes 30 seconds at least to load each page. I am getting MySQL server timeout error messages.

    ah new version have improved sql code . which make less querry execute which reduce the loading TIME.
    must be server over loaded .
    Add this code in your footer n let us know number of queery execute and time
    <?php echo $wpdb->num_queries; ?> queries. <?php timer_stop(1); ?> seconds.

    If you have any lines referring to ENABLE_CACHE in your wp-config.php file, delete them. This was found to cause excessive queries in at least one case.

    if you list name of the plugin’s you active it will be more use full for the mod

    Well, I’ve noticed a slight increase in queries, and almost no change in load time.

    Well, I’ve the same problem. And my sites have a high traffic. I’m thinking to move to another system like Drupal, because I need a powerfull performance.

    Hi, this is my first post to these forums although I’ve used them a lot in the past few years and been grateful for this community.

    I upgraded from 2.0.1 where I had no problems to 2.1 and my site slowed to 189 seconds to load any page. I don’t use any plugins. I reinstalled 2.1 thinking I might have some corrupt files, but no improvement. I reinstalled 2.0.1 and am back up and running again with normal/fast page loading.

    I’ve noticed a few threads that have had a similar issue with this new release. Does anyone have a handle on the cause? Thanks for the help!



    I know this is 11 months later, but I found out something that was making my blog load time to more than 25-30 seconds.

    I discovered that my server changed to webpage specific nomenclature in the SQL config database files.

    In my wp-config.php file I changed from (my original ISP) to the specific SQL database for my webpage… . . .

    voila! Loads in 5 seconds now!

    Check the data in your wp-config file.

    Hope this helps someone….
