Buddypress Very Slow / Resource Intensive
I have a BuddyPress website I have been using for about 3 years. I’ve “started over” a couple of times to ensure clean DBs and other stuff but generally BP is very slow.
I am on Shared Hosting (I think this is the problem).
I am talking about the raw processing time for generating the page, NOT delivering it.
It takes about 1 second with WordPress on its own. (Memory Usage- 25,011,632 bytes)
It takes about 5 seconds with BuddyPress enabled. (Memory Usage- 36,888,480 bytes)
I’m sure WordPress is bigger than BuddyPress yet it takes so much longer to “run” it. Will turning BuddyPress features off show an improvement (and if I do does their data remain?).
Anyone got any ideas?
I have compressed everything, running cached and minified files. Delivery to the browser takes 0.5 seconds. But actually responding after the initial load takes 5 with BP and 1 without.
