This is a continuation of:
All of the latest WordPress installations on my dedicated server with Hostgator have been running extremely slow.
I've been testing the connection times at: http://tools.pingdom.com
Attempts to isolate the issue have not revealed enough to really find the cause of the slowness.
The MySQL database and connection are working well for an installation of the CMS SilverStripe. I assume this means that it's not a database issue.
I did install multiple versions of WordPress and upon testing each of them came up with these results:
WP 2.6.5 - Fast
WP 2.7.1 - Timed Out
WP 2.8 - Fast
WP 2.8.1 - Slow
WP 2.8.2 - Slow
WP 2.8.3 - Slow
WP 2.8.4 - Slow
WP 2.8.5 - Slow
WP 2.8.6 - Slow
Any suggestions or possible solutions?
