Support » Fixing WordPress » Website times out everytime after searching

  • I’m not sure where the problem lies, but everytime I’m browsing my website the the connection seems to time out. To duplicate the problem please visit, and continue to click previous entries. Around the 4-6th page the connection will time out and it takes a few minutes before it’s up and running again.

    Please help.

    The whole site is slow. I would start with contacting your host.

    Thanks for the response.
    I’ve contacted them ( & they replied with:

    I understand your concern with the site timing out. Upon testing the site I was unable to duplicate the issue and the hosting account is running as it should. As such, if you are running into intermittent timeout issues, you may wish to refer to your favorite search engine or You may also research into potentially increasing the execution time of the hosting environment and perform a traceroute when the issue is occurring to assist with determining whether the issue is related to a local connection or scripting. Please note that we are unable to support local or scripting issues.

    Next step then is turn off all plugins and see if it happens still. If it doesn’t, then turn them all on one at a time until it starts happening again. When you find the problem, then go ahead and report what the problem was here so that the next guy doesn’t have to do the same thing.
    There’s also some chance that it has to do with the number of ads on the site, but we can’t be sure yet.

    A plugin is definitely slowing the site down But without any plugins activated the website still times out after going through 12 pages, give or take.

    When the site is back working for me, I will reactivate the plugins one by one to pinpoint which is slowing it down so much.

    I’m currently using Akismet, Audio Player, P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler), WP-DBManager, WP-PostRatings, & WP Super Cache.

    One by one, I reactivated every plugin excluding WP Super Cache, and the website didn’t time out until page 17 this time.

    Yeah, the site is still timing out every 5 minutes.

    I see the site running well now, without any issues mentioned above.
