Hi, was wondering if you could take a look at my site and let me know if there’s something wrong?
I’ve only added a small bit of content, and barely got started – but it just seems painfully slow.
My hosting provider say that they are perfect wordpress partners (FastHosts), and that it’s all being caused by plugins, themes and scripts.
Could you take a look at http://www.adicias.co.uk and let me know what you think?
If you then interact with the menu and go from page to page, some take in excess of 10 seconds, and I’ve tried multiple internet connections.
I’ve also added a caching plugin, and another plugin to simplify my scripts. Not sure what else I can do, but I need something that’s going to load up quicker.
It looks like it is an issue with the server. If you check the results here: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/cdFIei/http://www.adicias.co.uk, the “wait time” is pretty high. This means the server is taking too long to respond to the request.
Try to coordinate with your hosting provider to check on this further.
Thanks, I’ll speak to them about this.
Although they have mentioned the below (when I queried a timeout error with them), which would suggest it’s a theme/plugin issue. Let me know what you think:
[Mon Jan 23 09:08:40.086079 2017] [fcgid:warn] [pid 30432] [client 188.8.131.52:42216] mod_fcgid: read data timeout in 60 seconds, referer: http://www.adicias.co.uk/wp-admin/themes.php?page=install-required-plugins&plugin_status=update
[Mon Jan 23 09:08:40.089926 2017] [fcgid:warn] [pid 30432] (110)Connection timed out: [client 184.108.40.206:42216] mod_fcgid: ap_pass_brigade failed in handle_request_ipc function, referer: http://www.adicias.co.uk/wp-admin/themes.php?page=install-required-plugins&plugin_status=update
It seems that the error message is showing up because there is a script or installation in your website that is exceeding the 60 seconds maximum execution time in our servers. Please do optimise your script or use a different theme so it will not exceed the execution time and the error message will not show up again. You can also install site optimiser plugins in your wordpress account, this plugin will automatically optimise your script for you so it will not exceed the execution time
They also said the below, and that is isn’t anything to do with their servers:
[Wed Jan 25 06:20:02.239310 2017] [fcgid:warn] [pid 28225] [client 220.127.116.11:34366] mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function do_shorcode() in /home/hp3-linc4-nfs1-w/947/1054947/user/htdocs/wp-content/themes/you/lib/inc/stage-gallery-frame.php on line 207
The first set of errors you sent are from the back-end, so it is very unlikely causing the issue. The second one is a fatal error which should cause downtime on the site, not slowness.
Try to install a caching plugin to check if that will help.
Hi, unfortunately my hosting provider are saying the speed issues are all being caused by the theme or plugins.
They’re suggesting I re-name each of the plugins individually to see which ones are causing issues? Is this something you’ve heard of before? Is there any other way of identifying the issue, it just feels painfully slow compared to my other wordpress installations on the same shared server. Is there any other way of seeing what in the theme/plugins could be causing the hold up?
I LOVE this theme, but I’m having to think about scrapping it and going down another route because it’s just unprofessionally slow at the moment, and my hosting provider are assuring me it’s all on the theme/plugin side.
Can you please give us permission to disable your plugins then switch themes?
We will do 3 speed tests:
1. With the theme and plugins
2. Without plugins
3. Using a different theme.
This will help isolate the issue, or prove that the issue is with your hosting provider. 🙂
My apologies for the delayed reply @luke_schonenberger
Can you please do a full database backup first? Sometimes you may lose plugin configuration if you disable it, so it’s best to have a database backup before we proceed.
There’s no need to backup. Anyway, I tried to login to your Dashboard but it seems the login you sent previously is not working. Can you please check?
Here are the 4 tests done with description which will show that the issue is possibly on the server and not with our theme.
https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/mVLw8/http://www.adicias.co.uk/?cache=no — All plugins enabled (except Maintenance Plugin) and using YOU theme – Load time: 9.73 seconds
https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/dL3jlr/http://www.adicias.co.uk/?cache=no — All plugins enabled (except Maintenance Plugin) and using TwentySixteen theme – Load time: 11.30 seconds
https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/ptBTH/http://www.adicias.co.uk/?cache=no — All plugins disabled and using TwentySixteen theme – Load time: 8.30 seconds
https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/9eo8S/http://www.adicias.co.uk/?cache=no — All plugins disabled and using YOU theme – Load time: 7.40 seconds
As you see the third result – even with a barebones installation (no plugins then using the lightweight TwentySixteen Theme), the load time of your site is still pretty bad.
This will point the issue back to the server and your hosting provider can run the same set of tests for them to see this. If your hosting provider is not willing to look into it, changing to a hosting provider with a reputation of hosting fast sites is best.
