My Turtle Works web site was running slow. Being that it runs in WordPress I wondered if I needed better performance from the server. After calling ReadyHosting.com support they introduced me to a simpler way to improve performance. Optimizing the MySql tables used by WordPress.
- Access phpMyAdmin
- Select your WordPress database
- Scroll to bottom of list and click Check All
- In the Drop Down showing With selected select Optimize table
- Very quickly a page displays showing all the tables and their status.
Once I optimized my home page load time went from 10 seconds to 3 seconds.
