5.7 Load Time Slow. Very Slow

Hi All,

I know there has been a few discussions on the slowness of 5.7. I'm experiencing the same. I'm working on a site (can't share publically at the moment). It currently takes 10-15 seconds to load each time. Here are a few notes on my setup:

# concrete5 Version
Core Version -
Version Installed -
Database Version - 20151221000000

I'm on a GoDaddy Dedicated server and just upgraded to 8GB of ram (up from 4gb with no improvement).

I saw someone discussed Xdebug but I don't have that on my server. I'm a front-end developer and less of a tech. Not sure if anyone has a fix for this or if I can contract an hour or two of your time to resolve this for my company. Please reach out!

Thanks in advance!

Hi chrisb,

Load times of 10-15 seconds seem much higher than normal. What is the address of your website?

Are you using full page caching? If you are and you are still having speed issues, it may be related to an issue that has been fixed and available in the next release.

Appreciate your quick response!

First, the site is in development and I can't share publically at the moment (hopefully that doesn't deter your help).

Additional details:

The site with AND without being logged into c5 loads 10-15 seconds with all of the cache settings OFF.

Turning the cache settings ON makes the pages load in about 4-5 seconds (which is an improvement).

But, while developing the site, obviously there is a major slowdown in production when it takes 3 times the length to load (and there are a LOT of refreshing going on during development).

Right now, at 10-15 seconds, it's unusable.

Any additional thoughts would be excellent! Thanks again for your assistance.

One more thing I wanted to add here. There are 30+ bootstrap files uncached during development. This is probably the cause of it. Is there a way to keep that cached while not caching everything for dev?

This might possibly be the reason.

There is an issue at GitHub that sounds a lot like the problem you're describing here (if you're talking about CSS files):

Even with all the extra server requests, I don't see that accounting for a 10-15 second load time on a decent internet connection.

For testing, are you able to create another install on the same server using the sample content and default Elemental theme? If that install was slow, then you know there might be server issues. If it was fast, then you know it is something related to possibly your theme, add-ons, custom blocks, custom code, etc.
