Support » Fixing WordPress » wp-login.php is extremely slow

  • Trying to access a page with a login, i.e. the admin panel or protected pages is extremely slow. This happens with all plugins and themes disabled, with a fully upgraded WP version and removing and regenerating the .htaccess file.

    So for example https://picuwkz.nl/wp-login.php?action=postpass can take up to minutes after which the login happens (or times out).

    We are at a loss what causes this issue. The rest of the site has no problems.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi!

    This problem seems to be fairly common:

    You may want to look through some of these forums for answers:
    https://wordpress.org/search/panel+slow

    Here are a few questions that could help with debugging:
    1. If you have a local environment do you see the same slowness?
    2. Is your panel still slow once you disable all your WordPress Plugins?
    3. Does your website host have any idea why it could be slow? (Could be related to your hosting plan).

    Best of luck šŸ™‚

    1. We don’t have a local environment
    2. I stated that we did disable all our plugins
    3. It’s not the panel that is slow, it is logging in
    4. Why should our webhost know the reason your code is slow?

    If this is such a common problem, maybe it should be fixed?

    I can’t speak to how common the issue is, but it does appear like some users have had issues with their host and have resolved it at that level (Disk Usage/Bandwidth, availability, etc…).
