Website speed: DO, Code Igniter
I’ve installed a CodeCanyon(stack posts) CodeIgniter script on the basic Digital Ocean droplet.
I have the main website:
Domain registered at a Romanian company, the server has multiple extensions installed and it’s set up as per script specification, larger database (demo accounts and test posts), multiple dns settings (mail etc)
and a staging one (same code)
Registered at NameCheap, no extensions installed, no setup.
Even if the code is the same, the main website is painfully slow compared with the staging one. I even increased the subscription plan for the main server but with no effect.
I have no idea where to start fixing the issue, already tried hiring a freelancer that minified some files but end up braking some website functionalities.
