In general, we're very happy with the performance of our sites on Dreamhost. But one of our sites that we operate for the local community runs Wordpress and is very slow: http://www.sanday.co.uk/
Does anyone know why this might be, or have any suggestions as to how we could track down where the bottleneck is?
I found a brilliant plugin - WP Tuner, which showed me where my bottleneck was, and of course it was a plugin - 'Multipage Toolkit', which was doing large numbers of database queries on every page.
download and install plugin WP-Tuner. It will show you who is slowing down your blog
