WordPress Slow load times. (7 posts)

    I am having a problem with my wordpress. For some reason it is taking quite some time to load every page on my site.


    I have checked the following things.

    My redirect - I changed it to http://www.eliteavi.com/index.html which is a old website before I moved to wordpress. That site loads instantly and so do all the sub pages.

    I believe that means it is not my server or my redirect.

    It takes anywhere between 5 and 14 seconds on all wordpress pages

    Just now I pulled up the dashboard. When I click on the pages link it took 20 seconds to load. Every page in the dashboard just takes FOREVER to do anything.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was number 2 on google for home theater installation which helped all my local city searches for my business. Now I am on page 3 "just happened over the weekend without changing anything" so I wonder if it is because the load time is taking so long.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    We have tried the plug ins with no sucess.

    I was on the 2010 theme. I tried to switch to big city with no luck. Still the same problem.

    I appreciate the help.

    It could be an issue with your host's MySQL server. That said, your site does not seem unusually slow to me. In fact, it's quite quick.

    Thats strange. It is still running somewhat slow for me now. Not quite as bad as earlier but still around 5 - 7 seconds of response time lag before the page really starts to load.

    It's loading slower here now. About a 5 sec lag. Could be an intermittent shared hosting issue. Have you spoken to your hosts?

    My host says there are no problems. I have no clue what to think at this point. Load times were over 20 seconds earlier today.
