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… ( Would appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

  • seems to work fine one day later. Perhaps a hung process?

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 :(
