Why is my site so slow? (13 posts)

    THIS is my site are there things I could do to speed up the loading of the home page?

  2. See this link for Pingdom's test on your site.

    13 seconds just to get a page back. That's abusive and way too long.

    Start with MySQL optimization

    Also try installing a PHP op cache such as eAccelerator or XCache.

    And installing WP Super Cache would not hurt. That will let subsequent hits to your page serve out static files instead of dynamic ones.

    Thanks jdembowski good stuff. What do the results of Pingdom's test mean? The page loads slow but the elements load fast?

    my dashboard is even slower 45 seconds

  5. Exactly. The initial page reply is generated by WordPress. That part is dynamic and is taking too long to generate. That's where MySQL optimization and PHP op cache might help.

    The elements are static. They get referenced in the generated page but load quickly. So your server is probably okay but your database and PHP might benefit from some tuning.

    I deactivated all plug-in and switched to the default theme and it loads in under one second

    Laughter. That works too! Now re-activate them one at a time until you find the culprit.

    WP Super cache should help better I think

  12. why would my theme take so much more time to load then the default? it seem very light. Errors?

    It could be errors, it could be number of queries, etc. 2.5 seconds is not bad (acceptable) and is a lot better than the 13 seconds originally.

    I can't get eAccelerator or XCache. Do you have a direct link

    What environment are you running? On most Linux distributions you can add the package for eAccelerator or Xcache. If you can't get the packages, you will have to rebuild them on your server.

    Try learning basic css from http://w3schools.com then you could be able to make your site look like any theme using the default theme. Most third party themes usually have bugs that affect your site so its best to use css. http://post.netspier.net
