My Wordpress site very slow?

May 27, 2015 2.1k views
WordPress Server Optimization Ubuntu

I had an issue for the last hour. My Wordpress site took too long to load. Today I installed my https certificate and activated OCSP Stapling. Now it seems as it is fixed, but I'd like to have your feedback on why it should have happened. Perhaps some disk or CPU problem? a static html file was quickly served, but wordpress was way too slow. Now my site seems to be loading fine... (https://elton.al) Would appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

    I have a tips for all the people how have slow wordpress, install VARNISH !!! :)
    this is the how to on UBUNTU server:

    sudo curl http://repo.varnish-cache.org/debian/GPG-key.txt | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb http://repo.varnish-cache.org/ubuntu/ lucid varnish-3.0
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install varnish
    sudo service apache2 restart
    sudo service varnish restart

Hi,
If the server is cpanel, go ahead and install an effective pluggin called "Apachebooster".
This will cache the static and dynamic contents and make the site much faster than before.
You may find the pluggin from the Download Apachebooster Area

By the way apachebooster is not free now and the link is DEAD :(
