    I installed wordpress multisite on linux server I created 3000 sub blogs and looking to grow over time. I have few plugins including wp super cache. wp minify and few others. The blogs are fine from public side but in the dashboard its too slow to navigate around. I also installed Hyper-db and inserted database details. i also increased the memory but its still too slow. can some body help me please, what am doing wrong? Thanks

  2. How much memory do you have?

    My server has

    Guaranteed RAM 2048 MB

    Dynamic RAM 8192 MB

    Hard-disk space 80 GB


    I am using plugin to increase memory it seems to increases memomy per blog because each blog shows different. should i increase for all blogs and how much. I tried to increase different sizes but its still slow.

  4. You have enough memory (I don't even have a gig and it's fine). Do you know how much memory is allocated to PHP? It should be at least 40?

    I allocated 1024m limit for php
    and disables all the plugin and still slow.

    the following are the info contained in phpinfo.php page

    memory_limit 1024M (local value column)

    128M (master value column)

    also I installed memory viewer plugin and its showing 1024m memory limit in wordpres dashboard.

  6. Okay does that plugin tell you how much memory your admin dash is using?

    and wp overview plugin is giving this detail:

    I changed the memory limit from 1024m to 512m

    PHP Version : 5.3.3 / 64Bit OS
    Memory limit : 512 MByte
    Memory usage : 104.76 MByte

  9. Honestly I don't know. I'd think it would have to do with your server, but I could be wrong.

    Maybe your database isn't upgraded. Try http://site.url/wp-admin/upgrade.php.

    Sometimes i've been having trouble with the sub blogs dbs not being upgraded. Just to be sure, try /wp-admin/upgrade.php on one of your sub blogs.

  13. Actually just hitting /wp-admin on the sub-blog will do that.

    I done 3 multisite networks before as test with 300 and 1000 blogs but it it only got slower when it got bigger than 1000... the 300 1 was fine.

  18. SharDB or HyberDB (splitting up your DB) is a good start.

    Past that, it's a lot of studying your server, what's happening there, and tweaking apache. http://thethemefoundry.com/blog/optimize-apache-wordpress/
