Problem with admin area

#1

Hello Guys,

Since last few weeks my admin area has been really slow. When their is more than 1000 users online I can’t even access my admin area but the front end works fine. I get message shown below when I try to access my admin area, it’s so frustrating and I have to wait till the traffic goes below 500.

Also another problem is When i select posts option in admin area it takes more than 6 seconds just to load post area even when the traffic is low. I contacted my hosting but he does not know any issue that is causing the problem and trying to find it.

If anyone has been through this kind of problem, I would appreciate your help. Thanks

  • This appears you are facing this problem sometime.
  • Optimize Database
  • Keep minimum plugins. Eliminate bad egg.
  • If nothing solve, migrate to better web hosting.

I have around 26 plugins is that bad? There was no issue before the website could handle up to 1500 traffic and I could easily access admin area. I am getting the issue since past few weeks and I have not changed anything to theme or installed any new plugins.

I would recommend using less plugins. Because plugins are likely to create uncertain issues sometime.

This can be removed by properly following this guide.

Even GDPR plugin can be removed once the proper privacy policy is in force. Fastest cache can probably be replaced with htaccess or nginx rules.

I don’t know what the issue, today I updated the wordpress to 4.9.6 and all the issue seems to be gone. Maybe the issue was with the last version of wordpress. Thanks guys for help
