Wordpress Running Slow on DreamHost

wordpress

#1

Howdy,

My site is running increasing slow: www.jaredbeasley.net

I’ve tried deactivating my plugins to no avail. I am running the latest version of wordpress and the theme. Note how snappy the theme creator’s site is compared to mine: http://themewich.com/aware/

Navigating the back end has become maddeningly slow too.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Thanks!

Looks like your web server has a bit of a high load. Going to have our admins take a look there first, and if it still runs slowly after that, I’ll keep digging. :slight_smile:

Just emailed you! In a nutshell (…look! I’m in a nutshell! :)), we got the server load down, which seems to be helping a bit, but the larger issue at hand is having PageSpeed running with your specific theme. Having PrettyPhoto built into your theme while using PageSpeed will muck things up, since PrettyPhoto is a dynamic image rendering plugin. Please refer to my email for more detailed info! Thanks!
