TTFB is extremely slow - sohamagarwal00@gmail.com - 11-18-2020 09:56 PM

Hi guys

So basically my website that is built on Wordpress became slow overnight. https://savetheyoungheart.com/. Someone I asked said its due to TTFB being high for some reason. After troubleshooting i didn't see the issue with any of the plugins.

Any idea on what I can do?

Thank you

I recommend that most of my clients who are using WP pick a dedicated poster like WP Engine, or Kinsta, and front it with Cloudflare

Often solves many of their TTFB issues, and removes the need for a bunch of plugins

They also tend to be my smaller clients so it reduces their workload too

Maybe clean up the database?

Hi guys

So basically I use cloudflare along with a cloud hosting plan. And considering it became slow overnight without any changes I'm not sure what the issue is :/ We've updated the PHP and all but to no avail

Error encountered: (0) cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received

Could this be the reason?
