Hi,

I'm having trouble with my website. It is slow to load (and so is the wordpress desktop). I don't know if this is related to the theme, but I didn't have these problems with a previous theme. I've been in touch with hosting provider and they don't think it's a problem at their end. I am not running super cache. Any suggestions?

your sie loads for me in a little over 5 seconds. There is a wait on a 404 not found for
HTML Code:
http://understandingcancer.co.uk/__utm.gif?utmwv=4.5.9&utmn=2121483663&utmhn=understandingcancer.co.uk&utmcs=UTF-8&utmsr=1680x1050&utmsc=24-bit&utmul=en-us&utmje=1&utmfl=10.0%20r32&utmdt=%20%20Understanding%20Cancer&utmhid=1458625827&utmr=-&utmp=%2F
which I have no idea where it is coming from, probably a plugin, try disabling them all

Your query results '164 queries. 4.303 seconds' is very slow
1) how large is your database?
2) have you done a repair and optimize of it
3) what type of host are you running on - ie how many other websites are sharing the server
this can cause a big effect in presenting a web page and you will have to contact your host about this

Hi juggledad,

Thanks for replying

1) My database is 8.9 MB ( with an overhead of 1.6MB, 22 tables and 9,288 records). I've no idea if this is large or small!

2) I haven't done a repair or optimization. I can only point and click and I fear I would cause irreperable damage (!) a little knowledge is a dangerous thing...

3) I have contacted my host and they are looking into as well.

4) I have 18 plugins running I'll try disabling them now.

Thanks

18 plugins is a lot of code being executed, you might want to try disabling them all and check the speed, then add them in a little at a time to find out which is a problem.

9288 rows is not that big, but doing a optimize won't hurt.

You do have a backup of your database...RIGHT!!?

there is a great plugin called wp-dbmanager that you can schedule it to do backups and optimizations for you (you can even have an export emailed to you automatically)

Most of the rows could be from 'post' updates. Wordpress keeps every revision. You can limit the number ov revisions by adding the following line to wp_config.php:

define ('WP_POST_REVISIONS', 2);

this will only keep 2 revisions of any post. A negative number will keep all revisions, 0 will keep none and any positive number will keep that many copies

And if you reallyfeel brave you can go into phpMyAdmin and (AFTER DOING A BACKUP/EXPORT) you can issue the following SQL statement which will remove ALL the rvisions
HTML Code:
delete FROM `wp_posts` where `post_type` = 'revision'
If you look at teh row count for the table wp-posts before and after, you can see how many rows were revisions.

Then do an Optimize of the table.

Many thanks for your suggestions. Yes I do back up my database and no I don't use wp-dbmanager, I guess if I did I'd have 19 plugins! Thanks for giving me an idea of the size, this is my one and only website so I have nothing to compare it to.

I did add

define ('WP_POST_REVISIONS', 2);

to wp-config.php and nothing happens. I still have 20 revisions on some blogs

www.richardhughes.ca
Wordpress define 3.0.4
Atahualpa 3.4.9

What did I not do correctly?

I'm not sure if it will get rid of existing revisions you may need to delete them.

I cannot see how to delete them. Would I use a plug in such as Delete-Revision?

I've never looked at that plugin but it might work. I'd probably go I to phpmyadmin a d figure out the SQL statement to do it. Do a google search and I'm sure you'll find an explaination

I went to phpMyAdmin, to the database, clicked the SQL tab

typed

DELETE FROM wp_posts WHERE post_type = "revision";

and it worked perfectly. An SQL savvy friend said to change the word DELETE to SELECT * FROM
to see what its going to delete first before you pull the trigger.

I made some more revisions, did what he suggested and yes, that works fine, too, with a little more comfort level for me!

A Google search for cleaning up the revisions issue comes up with a more complete scenario to execute.
Here is the suggested code to use.
DELETE a,b,c
FROM wp_posts a
LEFT JOIN wp_term_relationships b ON (a.ID = b.object_id)
LEFT JOIN wp_postmeta c ON (a.ID = c.post_id)
WHERE a.post_type = 'revision'
I just improved my page load from 14 seconds to 2 seconds.
