Hi, I’ve installed Plesk with the marketplace image on a droplet with Basic / 1 GB / 1 vCPUs to set up a simple ecommerce. I provide only the server management, the ecommerce developer is an external party.
After the first boot I’ve updated every packet and plesk installation, but I noticed that the response of the machine was really slow.
After some development, I decided to upgrade the machine to a Basic / 2 GB / 2 vCPUs hoping to solve the issues with slow respose.
The situation seemed to improve, but during a password change, the site started to get slow until an error 500 was thrown, and soon after also Plesk was not reachable. Restarting the machine not solved the issue.
I’ve runned a
plesk repair all and everything seemed to be solved, but the site still responds in 1.3/1.9 seconds, and we had to disable
ModSecurity because made the site thrown error 500.
The developer claims that the site runs 50% faster in a vanilla installation of WP, and that when working on it he often gets the 500 error.
I’m not an expert in the management of WP sites, because of this we choose Plesk to simplify some aspects, but I’m not sure of the choice anymore.
Do you have any idea about solve and optimize these issues?
