I’m running the 20$ droplet (4gb RAM, 2 core). My response time, or i’d say TTFB is too high. It even goes up to 4 secs sometimes, apart from the TTFB, the page loads pretty quicly (under 1 sec)

OS: Ubuntu 20.04
CMS: Wordpress
CDN: Stackpath
Caching: WP Rocket

I really need some help regarding this, how can i optimize my server. I tried some online available resources but nothing works. I would really appretiate the help.

Same issue here with $60/mo droplet with dedicated CPU and 8G RAM.

I have also switched to http2 and fastcgi and I still get the same huge TTFB. I have my wordpress in another server and the TTFB there is 1/5 of DO and don’t know what to do…

I would definitely like to switch but can’t fix the TTFB issue.
