Slow loading joomla site

asked May 29, 2012 in General by ross (850 points)
Hello there
I have a Joomla 2.5 site that I am working on, and I am having a problem with the loading speed. It is way too slow. Sometimes the pages load normally and at other times it takes around 1 minute to load one page. Does anyone know how to make the loading faster in my joomla website? I would appreciate your help
Thank you

1.Check if there are any processes running in the background of your server
2.Try  enabling  gzip and cache features on Global configuration.
3.Check into all third party installed extensions
4.Check your local machine’s cpu usage while running your site

Try using Google's Firebug Page Speed  extension.It can depend on page content. If you are using pictures make sure they have been optimized for web viewing.

this is most probably a hosting problem. I think you should change your host provider. Hostgator is pretty fast and good.
