Site slow – with or without Smush

Site dashboard is really slow even after increasing WordPress memory and PHP max_execution_time. And Smush take like an entire day to compress 300 images.

    Hello Marie

    It seems to a server related issue. First of all, I am getting slow server response time from your server. Then I have also tried to check in google pagespeed, it shows this error:

    Uptrends test fails on most of the locations. So it seems, the server itself is taking time to respond. During smush, your server sends the image on the smush server, it's compressed there and send it back to your server. So, if your server response time is low, it will take some time.

    Hope that explains a bit :slight_smile: Have a nice day!
