Chat plugin takes about 5 minutes to send a chat message

I installed the chat plugin on two Buddypress sites with the Buddyboss theme and everytime I send a message it takes around 5 minutes to finally go through. Is that normal?!

    Hi Christer and welcome to WPMU DEV!

    5 minutes is definitely not normal. On my shared hosting test site I normally see roughly 2-3 second delays at most.

    Would it be possible for you to test with all other plugins deactivated and using the default Twenty Eleven or BP default theme?

    Also, is your hosting service shared?

    Yup, so I deactivated most of the plugins that buddyboss recommended and it works instantaneously. I didn’t deactivate them all or use a different theme so it’s definitively a too many plugin thing going on. What sucks is I need alll those plugins.

    I have a deluxe hosting account with GoDaddy and I have 6 other installations of wordpress on it, so I guess that is considered shared hosting.

    You think there’s anything I can do so that I can reactivate the plugins?

    Thanks so much for your help!
