Dreamhost so slow

Does anyone know of any fixes to this?

Any industry-known tips/tricks?

The page loads sometimes take 20-30 seconds.

so bad.

mk

Get a new host?

Ensure that

  1. you’re running in production mode
  2. you’re using fastcgi
  3. your app doesn’t have serious problems.

DH runs my apps just fine.

Hmmmm…

It is in production mode. It uses fastcgi. and its not THAT complex so i
dont think i could have botched the code too much…

Would it be possible that someone is on my shared-server that has a
really popular app that slows it down???

mk

If that is the case, I am sure the Dreamhost staff would be happy to
assist you. I have heard that they often move people around from
server to server if their load is too heavy.

Keep in mind as well that the last week and a half Dreamhost has been
having a lot of issues, and some servers are still experiencing
really slow load times. Perhaps you should try uploading some static
files and see what kind of download speed you get on them?

I have problems with the connection to the db… I’m not sure how they
setup there databases exactly, but they are are different servers than
your
web boxen. Check your logs and see where the slow down is occuring. I
noticed the db issues the first time I ran a migrate on my prod db. It
would take anywhere from 2 - 20 secs to create columns and such.
Personally
I haven’t looked into a fix yet. You can try creating a new database
and
perhaps it will get created on a different backend server.
