I am working on a wordpress site and have installed pods cms to control all the content. So far I have 14 pods covering 7 wordpress pages (max of 4 on each page). The site is static so no blog pages just purely using WP / pods for CMS.
Just wondering if it is pods that might be the issue calling for the data on each page? If so what am I best to to do fix this and speed things up as the current speed is not acceptable to the client.
Can anyone help with suggestions?
Thanks!October 18, 2011 at 12:47 pm #168285
forgot to add I have installed WP Super CahceOctober 18, 2011 at 2:23 pm #168286
I’ve got a number of sites with Pods, and unless I’ve got a fat finger in your codes, I see hardly any server load from running Pods. I’ve even got a site that pulls some data from a remote server using curl and then process it with pods.
Super Cache might be your problem. I tried running it on a high-volume site, and didn’t like what I was getting. I switched over to Quick Cache and was much happier with the way that performed. You could also try a CDN for your client like CloudFlare.
I visited the URL you posted, and your site came up fine for me.October 18, 2011 at 2:47 pm #168287
thanks for the reply, I have removed the super cache now as it stops the edits from appearing straight away (unless I am being stupid and have set it wrong – which is also very likely!!), I will look at a CDN but there’s not that much on the page anyway and the site is also small. It’s just running soooooo slow for me.October 18, 2011 at 2:50 pm #168288
it even runs slow in the admin area…October 18, 2011 at 5:37 pm #168289
It might be your server. Is this running on a shared server? You might want to try a different host.October 18, 2011 at 8:48 pm #168290
running a traceroute to your server I am getting a ton of packet loss.November 22, 2011 at 3:17 pm #168292
what does this mean?
‘running a traceroute to your server I am getting a ton of packet loss’

Open a command prompt on your computer and type:
This will work on Windows or *nix. Type "traceroute" on a Mac. You will see all of the relays that your data needs to pass through to get from your server to your computer and the amount of time it takes each relay to respond. The more hops you have to make and the more time each relay takes, the slower your website will load. You can run "tracert podscms.org" for a comparison. Times > 200ms usually indicate a problem.
What I’m seeing is that the server "ip-66-33-201-114.dreamhost.com" is taking 200-300ms to respond. This is one bottleneck. You need to file a ticket with Dreamhost.November 22, 2011 at 4:49 pm #168294
thanks Chris, I will do that now.
So it is something at the hosts end and not something my side then? That’s a relief if so as I’ve been going through every file trying to make it smaller.November 22, 2011 at 4:59 pm #168295
