PowerCMS Driven Site extremely slow

PowerCMS Driven Site extremely slow

The site I have built using PowerCMS is really slow on the admin site of things. Is this a function of the CMS or the Host?

Thanks

This is most likely because of the server. How slow are the pages?

The pages were taking 15 seconds or more. I talked with the host (Godaddy) and they had said they were not experiencing anything on the server that would cause a problem.

The did suggest a possible browser incompatibility but these are fairly straight PHP files and as far as the CMS is concerned, it was slow in both IE8 and FireFox 3.5

One thing I did do is to clear my cache, temp IE files and cookies, it did speed up slightly but not much.

could you post up a link to your cms pages? Does the slow loading also occur on the login page?

The home page is not ready yet but most other links work.

links.php

The login page was also a little slow but not as slow as the rest. When inserting new data into the CMS database through the admin pages, the refresh time was much to long. Today, it did not act this way and lag time wasn't an issue.

I didn't see any delay for the pages working. Is the error still happening for you? It could have been a temporary server issue.

Jimmy,

I think it's a combination of cookies and temp IE files building and a bit of slow server response. It has gotten quicker and it depends on the time of day, so Internet traffic may be bogging my ISP also.

I appreciate you looking into it but the more I look at it the more I think it is not necessarily the CMS by itself.

If that's the case, it might be a good idea to find a different provider so traffic to your site won't experience any delay. If you run into any additional issues, feel free to open a new thread.
