    How are other PHP and/or MySQL programs running on your server? Could it be your webserver and/or MySQL server having problems? It’s very rare that a PHP/MySQL app just boggs down. Also, disable ALL plugins, not most.

    I have a Simple Machines Forum and a Coppermine Gallery running on the same server, and they perform flawlessly. WordPress used to be loading lightfast… – Tried disabling all plugins – didn’t help a bit, sorry.

    Have you made any hacks or enhancements? Also, what’s wrong with your WP installation? I loaded the URL you posted and it was lightning fast. It reported “22 Queries, Seitenaufbau: 7.203 Sekunden”, but I timed it in under 2 seconds. Pretty good for a .de site (I’m over in the U.S.) .

    The irregular quick load is thanks to the Staticize Reloaded plugin only (the cached version gives the original rendering time). – Well, yes, I did some things to my original WP, but got rid of all that when I installed a current 1.5 nightly built…

    So, it’s not really loading slow for me. On my DSL it’s under 2 seconds. On my 56k, it’s under 3. Is it still slow for you?




    For me just now, sitting on a T1 at my office, it loaded right around 2 seconds… evewn though it claims it took 8.739….. there’s no way it took that long for me….


    You are both right. However, this is – as I’ve already tried to say – due to the Staticize Reloaded plugin. This plugin caches pages. The quick loading page you see is taken from the cache, whereas generating the page initially took exactly the time it says at the bottom of the page. – Although Staticize speeds up the most frequently used pages, navigating around the blog still is quite a pain in the rear in terms of page creation time (with most pages taking as it says at the bottom of the pages).
