Server extremely slow
Someone should please come to my aid before this thing makes me do the unthinkable. How can I have a 16GB RAM, 6cores digital ocean droplet. Running on Wordpress with 34 plugins. Linked to Cloudflare and all caching mechanisms in place. Yet my site still takes 50s to load. I have googled and googled and googled, tried all the things I could find online and yet the issue still persists. The issue gets so worse that when I have about 300 realtime users at any instant, I get a 502 error. I have optimized, optimized, optimized and optimized and I’m just so tired about this. Someone should just come to my aid please . What do I do to make my site fast enough and avoid http error when a lot of realtime users are online. I know that a 6GB RAM digitalocean droplet will carry more than 5000 realtime users and still be very fast. Please what am I not doing right? What am I missing? I need all the help I can get please. Someone should give me a configuration settings that will carry this traffic and also what things do I need to constantly do to keep the speed. Please help me.
