I have been getting “Reduce server response time” issues with the Pagespeed Insights tool.

To test whether it is due to DNS, PHP, Wordpress or hosting issue, I duplicated my website at Digitalocean and pasted it in Google Cloud - Google Compute Engine instance.

Problem solved! In Google Cloud I’m able to get faster server response times and pass the Pagespeed test with flying colors even with the smallest VPS in gcloud.

So it’s not due to PHP or Wordpress. Digitalocean server has server response time issues. The difference was between 300ms and 1s.

Hey, <br>that’s strange. I get 200ms response time with a Statamic Blog that pulls in content from 3 folders and does quite a lot of heavy lifting. <br> <br>Let’s troubleshoot some common things: <br> <br>1.) Are you using transform? If so, please check that the _cache folder or the directory you assigned to Transform is writeable. <br>2.) Do you have a LOT of entries? Check your _cache-size, it may well be the culprit if it is too large. <br>3.) Do you use the log-functionality? If so, is there anything showing up in the logs? <br> <br>Otherwise, shoot a tweet @statamic, these guys are usually of great help and a pleasure to work with.
