Support » Fixing WordPress » Why is my blog so slow?

  • My blog has become painfully slow recently. I can’t understand why. I have other sites running from the same domain and they are fine. Is there anything I can do?

  • Start with the plugins you have enabled. Next go to any statistics stuff you’ve got running and see if they’re delaying the load.


    Thanks for the quick reply Cypher. I just deactivated the WP-Shortstat plugin and it’s faster now.

    Hmmmm…..been using that plugin for a while now without problems.

    Don’t know that plugin but I guess it could be the size of the table. I have had some plugins that run through the entire table and may even time out if it is too large (I have to remember to flush the table for CG-Feedread from time to time).

    Yeah, the table for WP-Shortstat was huge. Is there a flush command in phpMyAdmin or should it be a function of the plugin? I’m just doing without the stats as I learn more and, thanks to you and Cypher, I’ve learned a lot so far.

    Yep, there is in phpMyAdmin a tab called, surprisingly, “Empty” (Not to be confused with “Drop” 😉

    And, yes, there should be, if there isn’t, a function in the plugin. There is in CG-Referrer (I mistakenly wrote CG-Feedread earlier).
