We are working with WordPress in a Windows environment due to other websites we run. Recently we have noticed the whole site is slowing down, and it's mostly the initial connection - e.g. you hit a page, it takes 10-15 at the fastest to connect and read the page. The content downloads really fast though.
Now hitting the other websites on the server, they run extra fast (no one is really looking at that site as it's admin only).
Has anyone else experienced this and can help? Could it be the database that is a bit guffed?
