    Hi Arsh -

    I log into my host using putty, ssh, and as soon as I get the command prompt I enter the top command -

    Perhaps you need to ask your hosting support about that command - perhaps it is disabled?

    Here is what I see when I do that command -

    top - 19:34:21 up 60 days, 19:29, 1 user, load average: 5.32, 5.57, 5.49

    Log into the server (shell) and type 'top' in - then hit the 1 key - it will show you the server stats and you can update the refresh rate (d) - q to quit

    At least that will tell you if it is indeed a slowdown due to load on the server -

    Thanks. I'm really naive at this stuff but I logged in to shell server using puTTY but command 'top' isn't working. I get

    -bash: top: command not found

    Thanks mate. But if it was really the server, wouldn't all the users be having the problem? Only some users are consistently having the problem.

    started a topic Forum too slow

    Forum too slow

    Hi there,

    Few of our users are complaining about forum being a tad too slow at times. At times when they post, it times out. Page loading too is very slow. My rough guess is that about 30% of the users are facing this problem - and they are not from just one part of the world. One particular user isn't able to post any posting longer than 2-3 words.

    My guess is that it is a host/server issue - is there any good way I can test the server? We're on shared hosting. We had some downtime few weeks ago too so that's why I'm suspect of the host.

    If not host/server issue, what else could it be? I have turned off add-ons that we don't use but that hasn't made much difference.

    Thanks in advance

    Arsh
