I just purchased a domain from DreamHost and did the one-click install WordPress 3.8.1 on DreamHost. Here's my site: http://www.juliawang.net It is a brand new site, and I don't have many files or pictures on it.
It's running SO slowly that I can't stand it anymore.
Verifications of results:
- tried different browsers
- deactivated all plugins
- http://bytecheck.com/ reports 6.702 seconds for first byte
- http://tools.pingdom.com/ typically 7.81 seconds load time, page size 752.5kB
- connecting to http://www.juliawang.net/readme.html is near instant, so it's something to do with WordPress and the Dreamhost servers.
I saw there were many similar posts about the slowness of WordPress on DreamHost, and I thought the problem would have been resolved by now. Apparently it hasn't.
Does anyone have any trick in making the site back to normal, if not fast, speed?
