Improving WordPress Performance

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.

Optimizing Tables

  1. Access phpMyAdmin
  2. Select your WordPress database
  3. Scroll to bottom of list and click Check All
  4. In the Drop Down showing With selected select Optimize table
  5. 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.
