Everything slow?
I was just wondering how many other people are experiencing overall very slowness. My site now takes more than 1 minute to load a page. The SFTP/SSH has slowed down considerably too...

I'm considering submitting a ticket to support and see what is going on. I mean, 10 seconds is passable, but 1 minute??

I've found it incredibly slow ever since I signed up on the 15th. My site is bare-bones right now with no traffic, and it still crawls.

My ticket to support came back with "There are no performance enhancements available on your shared hosting plan. You would need to upgrade to a dedicated server to see a performance boost."

I'm currently looking for another hosting company.

I have about 100 sites hosted at dreamhost (although not all run php and mysql) but those that do are running pretty fast. It more likely isn't system wide but probably the server you are on. If it's the same server for all that are slow, then dreamhost needs to find out why that server is bad, or put you on another server.

What server are you on? I'm on the paramount server and suffer the same issues you describe.

I'm on Avalon and I had been experiencing some slow-down...

I had a few PHP documents that were executing in less than 0.09 seconds and loading in less than 0.3 seconds on one day and then the next it went to 0.1 seconds and 1-3 seconds, respectively.

Not a huge difference, but still a difference without a change in files, data, and traffic.

I can't even access my site right now, though.

I'm on mariposa.dreamhost.com. Seems like the Web control panel has slowed down too (it was ok a few hours ago, but now it seems stuck). I'm trying to find another host too, but the bastardly thing is that I can't even backup my site because the SFTP is so goddamned slow.

Edit: Weird thing is that right after I posted the SFTP seems to have started working. The site is somewhat faster too, now loading a page in 10-15 seconds (still slow but MUCH better than 1 minute). Maybe someone else on the server was killing the bw?

Edit again: Apparently my celebration was premature. SFTP works but at the incredibly fast speed of 40kb/s (my dl max is 300kb/s).

Im on 'holt' and mysql server 'sebastian' and have been having loading times of 10+ seconds. Please send in a ticket if you are having the problem so they KNOW its a problem. They tried to tell me there was no support tickets about it, and my site was fine even with 10+ second load times. Even tried to say google ads might be making it slow. hehe yea right.

I'll try. The last response I got from their support was less than friendly though.

Read your email you get when your account is signed up. Seriously, you get a TON of information from Dreamhost when you activate your account. Smile

If you connect to your server via SSH, you'll also see the server name after you log in.

Lankershim is my host - most of the day it's had an average load of >20, sometimes as high as 30. This is insane.

I'm glad to see it now running at 4.9... but seriously, it was thrashed last night, and again today. Sad
