    Slow Load  Plugin Problem? 2Fergal Mc Greevy

    My site runs really slow. It is taking ages view the site when a change has been updated and then I often get a message “connection reset” or “internal server error”. This does not happen on other other site. I asked 123-Reg and they have suggested it might be the caching plugins but I have no idea what these are. This is what the support line advises….. any suggestions
    How to disable caching within your CMS software

    How to disable caching within your CMS software

    System caching is primarily effective when the database and the content of your CMS application are both located on a single server (Normally found on a VPS or dedicated server). Using caching in the shared environment can have an adverse effect in that it slows the performance of the site rather than speeding it up.

    This guide will cover the two most popular CMS systems Joomla and WordPress, if you use a different CMS system please refer to the support guides for your chosen provider.

    Disabling caching in Joomla

    In order to increase the performance of your Joomla website please ensure the following caching options are switched off.
    Further details of this can be found on the Joomla website

    http://docs.joomla.org/Cache

    Page Caching
    Configuration: Built-in Plugin (Extensions -> Plugin Manager -> System – Cache)
    Caches: each whole page of your site

    View Caching
    Configuration: Global Config->Cache
    Caches: each view of a component

    Module Caching
    Configuration: Global Config->Cache
    Caches: each module (individually customized via each module’s Advanced Parameters)

    Disabling caching in WordPress

    In order to improve site performance for your WordPress driven site, please ensure that all caching plugins are disabled on your site. You can disable the plugins by logging into the WordPress admin dashboard for your site and disable any caching plugins found under the plugins menu.
    The 2 most popular caching plugins used within WordPress are:

    WP-super-cache plugin.
    W3-total-cache.

    Hi Fergal,

    Caching should actually speed up your website.

    It’s most likely a problem with your hosting company or some other plugin you have installed.

    A couple of questions..

    1) Who are you hosting with
    2) What plugins have you installed

    Let me know,

    I am using 123-Reg. No problem installing. I have Akismet, Hello Dolly then installed Effortless Maps and Tweet and Like. I did have other plugins t do with maps and a booking form but have deleted them. The site is now not running quite as slow but is still slow and I get messages about the connection reset and internal server error.

    Really like your videos! Thanks, Jamie
