Site slow on server. (DK)

Permalink 1 user found helpful

I've made the whole website finished and uploaded to server. But the website is incredibly slow. I've talked with and they say that their server to run as they should. Is there someone who can take a quick look at my page and maybe tell me what's wrong?

Few tips:
1. Try disabling cache on the site (Dashboard => System & Settings)
2. Clear out /files/cache folder
3. Try enabling some of the alternative caching libraries, those ones that use RAM as their storage backend are quite much faster:

I've tried a few times and it's as if it does not really help.
If I download the entire page down locally run it exactly as I want it to. :(

The big part of the delay seems to be between requesting the page and the first response. After that, things appear to be coming quickly.

You could try uploading a few simple versions of 'hello world' that work in different ways to see where the bottleneck may be:
- a plain html version ( no php or databse involved)
- a php versiopn (php, but no database)
- a php & mySQL version (put the text in the database with phpMyAdmin, retrieve it in a one page php script and display it)
- a Concrete5 hello world page (minimal theme, single block)

Note that only the last of these involves Concrete5.
