    WordPress backend is slow

    I got a A2 vps and I got a fastcomet VPS

    And the backend of my WordPress sites are a lot more quicker there. 
    All my managed godaddy VPS resources is not used (at all) 

    Is there anything i can do to improve the backend? 
    The sites is also really slow when not cached from the frontend. 

    I tried with both domains that is controlled by Godaddy and cloudflare.

    Hey @AVeas 

     

    Thanks for sharing your experience with the community!

     

    There are a few things you can do to optimize the performance of the admin area:

     

    1. Audit your plugins list, deleting any inactive plugins, deactivating and deleting any unnecessary ones. To take it a step further, you can temporarily install the Query Monitor plugin to test which plugins are hogging the most resources and look for replacements.

    2. Consider using an optimization plugin like WP Rocket

    3. Use the latest version of PHP possible

    4. Be sure to make a backup of your site first - then you could try a database cleaner like Advanced Database Cleaner to remove unnecessary data.

     

    I hope this helps!
