I’ve been suffering from a slow dreampress site for years. Always blaming a plethora of plugins. Recently we decided to completely redo our website with a minimal set of plugins: elementor pro, no real theme, and few other necessities. During the dev phase we were on our shared hosting site. What a refreshing experience as it was way snappier than the live site.
However, yesterday we launched live on dreampress and we’re back to a crawl. I don’t want to blame dreampress just yet, so I’m pouring over client side (chrome dev tools) and server side (query_monitor) measurement data. Our page generation time/TTFB is in the order of 7-15 seconds, with queries taking 1s of that. So, I’m trying to figure out where the bulk of time is spent.
Any ideas how to get some kind of breakdown?
