WP on Azure: A client is experiencing super fast page load times and super slow backend WP processing. WP updates are so slow the site crashes when updating core files, etc. I know there are many questions to ask about configurations which I do not know but looking for someone to help. Where do I start?
Sounds like you’re hitting cache on the Frontend and PHP in the back. If that’s the case then it’s normal for all slow sites/hosting.Look at the disk subsystem you’re using. Bottleneck could be there, or on the DB. Use object caching, it might help.Have a look at how much resources you have, how much I/O you have and whether PHP/MySQL runs slow without cache. If these are fine, then perhaps it’s a software configuration issue.How big is the VM? What OS? How is it configured? What theme/plugins. We have an Azure box that flies, but we use CloudLinux/cPanel/LiteSpeed. Without knowing your setup it’s hard to diagnose.
