Migrated my wordpress over . why is it so slow ?

February 21, 2015 2.8k views

I copied the files , dump the sql , setup a LAMP , installed virtualmin and setup mysql with identical username and identical password on the cheapest droplet.

This is my new site:

It takes almost 5 minutes to load the page and i have no error log as a starting point to debug.

Could anyone advise ? i am new to linux

  • in addition , mysql runs at about 10% mem usage.

    This wordpress is pretty small with less than 150 posts.

  • When I try to access the site, I receive a "Error establishing a database connection" error message. That would presumably generate a more detailed message in /var/log/apache2/error.log Without more information, my best advice is to disable all of your plugins. Then check how quickly the page loads. If it loads fine, re-enable the plugins one by one until you find out which one might be the cause of the issue.
