When I tried to verify the status of my server (which I haven’t worked on for at least a 2 weeks to a month) it took 5.1 seconds for the initial waterfall of the site to start loading. It took 8.9 minutes for the entire home page to load. Normally this process is a second or two I do not have data to compare I just know its not minutes for it to load.
How can I evaluate my server to see what the problem is?
I am running Ubuntu 18.04.3 with Apache2. I do not have much experience troubleshooting what could cause my server to act like this. I had thought to restart my droplet but Id prefer to try and evaluate what is going on.
