What’s causing my WordPress to be so slow?
Sometimes my WordPress blog works flawlessly and other times it’s so slow it just times out. Once that happens it stays like that for a while. I’ve never been able to accurately calculate how long it’s down but I’d guess 15-45 minutes. I can’t seem to cause it to force the time out – it’s rather random.
I have the most recent version of WordPress installed and always stay up to date with the most recent release and upgrade my plugins.
I have a wimpy PHP memory limit of 32MB but have only hit an all time high of 22MB.
I get so-so ping times. I just averaged 150 ms through an online tool. When my site does load though it loads fine.
I’ve even checked CPU load and it’s coming up at around 0.04%!
Any ideas on what’s causing my WordPress to choke up? I’m on a really cheap shared hosting plan (the kind that’s $30 a year with “unlimited” stuff!). If someone else on the server is using a resource intensive process or sucking up all the available bandwidth could it hinder my site’s performance to the point of temporarily knocking it offline?
