Upgraded to 2.3 yesterday. Now site is so slow, I can’t post.

  • I updated from 2.1 to 2.3 yesterday. Now that I’ve updated – my site is so slow, I can’t update my posts – and sometimes I can’t even access the dashboard.

    I got this email from my server:

    Looks like some of the plugins are increase the system load which why its running slow try and disable everything and switch to the default theme till you have it edit to match the changes in the latest version.

    I have no idea what any of this means – and I could really use some help…I can pay for your time – if anyone could help me out. I’m really stuck.

    I cant even get it to load from the link here..

    For now, you can go in with your ftp client and either rename or move your current theme directory, so that WP gets confused and loads the default one (assuming of course that you have the default theme uploaded).

    And please understand that that that advice above is only going to make WP load the default them, its not going to fix any other problems.

    Im at work for 4 hours today, but if contact me off list @ whoo AT whoo.org — I will help you.

    I don’t even understand what the problem is. What default theme? (I told you – I have NO idea what any of this means)




    if you ftp in, and look inside your themes directory, there ought to be a list of themes, ONE of them is the one you are using. One of them ought to be named default.

    You want to rename/move/or delete (AFTER BACKING IT UP) your current themes’s directory.

    If it were me, I would make another directory, and drag your current theme into that new directory, so that WP cant find it.

    If you cant do that, then like I said contact me off list and I will do it, and take a look at the other probs– you will need to employ patience though, I DO have to work.

    I did email you at the email address above. The reason I seem short is because of the amount of traffic I get. It’s hard for me to have down-time.





    you dont seem short – I just want you to understand that I cant do anything right this second — I am out the door in 3 minutes 🙂 Traffic waits, the world wont end.
