Joomla 1.5.24 taking too much time to connect.

Postby aeroomkar » Mon Oct 24, 2011 7:20 am

Hi, I am using a shared hosting on Dreamhost. My website is It was working alright until few days ago, but now it is taking too much time to connect to the server. Every actions on the website like clicking on an article or menu etc. also takes around 5-6 seconds to respond. After initial lag the website loads quickly, but for every action there is a lag of 5-6 seconds. I tried with a fresh joomla installation (, it works perfectly.

I have not installed any components recently. The debug mode shows 33 queries to the database, which I think is OK. I have optimized the database tables but no use.

Components used in the website:
mod_aidanews (two instances)
mavik thumbnails

Please help me find a solution.
(fyi, I am browsing from India)

Make a copy of the site, install it on a dedicated Joomla/CMS host, see if the problem still exists, if not then it is the host. If it it still exists then disable all the extensions/modules and plugins you installed, see how it runs. Then enable each in turn and test. This will pinpoint the issue if it is extension related.
