• I am trying to find why this is slowing my site down. When I go to gtmetrix.com it shows that this files takes 22s to load.

    X-Pingback http://www.thecasterschronicle.com/xmlrpc.php

    Content-Encoding gzip
    Content-Length 13044
    Keep-Alive timeout=10, max=30
    Connection Keep-Alive
    Content-Type text/html; charset=UTF-


    What does xml rpc do? I read that there are plugins to disable it..

    Is it needed?

    its used for pingbacks, it does NOT load, it accepts POST requests only.

    Your slowness is somewhere else

    PS: your pages are generated too slow
    condider using some caching plugins or other techniques

    why does gtmetrix show xmlrpc in the report then?

    What would be a good caching plugin Yui? I was using w3 cache but as soon as I disabled it my site sped up.

    Its just http header.
    X-pingback is almost always present for all WordPress installations, it is not a sign of problem.

    db cache reloaded fix – caching sql queries
    wp-supercache/hypercache/quickcache/… – generate page once, save and serve it multiple times to anonymous visitors

    w3 total cache is a combine and can replace other caching plugins, but you have to set it up and its config page looks too bloated )

    ty Yui. I just installed wp-supercache and testing it out.

    I don’t have many plugins installed so I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure why my pages load slow.

    Is there a board on here that I can go and list my plugins and get opinions as to how to speed up my site?

    Its usually host issue as well

    You can add http://wordpress.org/plugins/db-cache-reloaded-fix/
    this as well, mysql is usually a bottleneck, caching queries for 1-3 min will help with page generation for new pages and known users

    The best way way to test a site for performance is this:

    1. Switch to default unedited theme and deactivate all plugins. Why? This tests the default WP setup (which is good). If it is not good, contact your web host (or find another).
    2. Activate theme, test.
    3. Activate plugins, one at a time, test.

    Note results like page speed, load times, markup errors, etc., each step along the way to isolate the issue.

    Once the site has a good setup without cache, then turn that on for speedy site.

    Use well used and trusted themes and plugins only.
