WordPress Subdomain Multisite Working Slow

  • nikola123



    I’m running fresh new install of WordPress Multisite with subdomains.
    Eveything is working very very slow even blogs with 0 posts.
    There are no traffic on this site.
    I run it on shared hosting where I have one more visited wordpress site (single site, not multisite) and it’s working much much faster.
    So, I’m sure it’s not problem with hosting but something with multisite.

    Any help please ?

  • Check with your host, but your server may not be able to run MultiSite. It happens.



    What my server need in order to run multisite ?
    Let’s say that I use managed dedi server and that I can tell my hosting support to set whatever I need.

    If you’re getting a dedicated server, you won;t have to tell them anything special because it already has allocated more resources to you than shared.



    So, any idea why Multisite works so slow on the same server where simple WP works very fast.

    Multisite is empty and without plugins and traffic
    Simple WP has many plugins, posts and traffic and works much much faster then Multisite.

    because single wp generally uses about 32 megs of memory and multi 64.

    on shared hosts they don’t normally give you that much to work with. single sites started needing 64(ish) in 3.0 & up, so if your single site is also older, that’s why/

    I’m having the same issue. My primary site is working fine but the subdomains are really slow with virtually no posts, almost no content or users, and no plugins activated on these subdomains. They were working at a normal pace a couple weeks ago. Each subdomain page takes 4-5 minutes at a minimum to load.
    Using WP 3.1.3 with a dedicated server with more than enough memory.
    Any ideas?

    Plugins. Got any network activated? How did you do the subdomains, wildcarded & set up right? Did the host change the configuration?

    Only plugin network activated are Buddypress, Akismet, BP Disable Activation, Multisite plugin Manager, SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam. Subdomains are setup right. I’ve disabled all network plugins and it was still just as slow. And its only on the Admin side of the subdomains, but every admin page loads that slow, including the dashboard. It started in the last 2 weeks, basically since we upgraded to WP 3.1.3. I would hate to go back to the last WP version, if we don’t have to. Thoughts?

    Buddypress’d do it. It uses a bit more memory.

    If you’re on a dedicated box, you may have to tweak apache memory settings. Also, your OS might have something to do with it. CentOS?

    Linux 2.6.38-8-server #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:49:04 UTC 2011 x86_64

    PHP version is 5.3.5-1ubuntu7.2

    MySQL version is 5.1.54-1ubuntu4

    r with more than enough memory.

    how much?

    The dedicated server has 2 GB of RAM and allocated 512 MB to PHP.

    @ Andrea_r
    The dedicated server has 2 GB of RAM and allocated 512 MB to PHP. We have 1 main domain and 3 subdomains. The subdomains have 1 or 2 pages at the most and 1 or 2 posts to date. That’s it. The main domain works fine. The subdomains take 5minutes or longer to load any pages on the admin side, including logging in or bringing up the dashboards.

    Did you set up the wildcard subdomains correctly?
    How much memory is allocated to mysql?
    Have you looked at any error logs?
    have you sat in a terminal and did a top to watch what the server does when someone logs in?
