    Slow initial page load

    Hi guys,

    I've just migrated to a new dedicated server and am experiencing a very strange issue.

    All the PHP sites are taking too long for the first load ( some even up to 15 seconds, whereas on the old server they would load in 2-3 seconds ). After the initial load, they load very fast ( faster than on the old server ). Hardware wise, this new server is better so that's not the issue. I'm guessing it's something related to the way PHP is configured.

    I'm using Cpanel + Cloudinux + nginxcp

    PHP is 5.4 with fcgi.

    Any suggestions ?

    did you change locations / ip adresses ?
    Could it be a DNS / network issue with the new server (provider, network quality, network controller )

    The issue was with the I/O limit for Cloudlinux which had been set way too low. Thanks for the suggestion anyway

    Hi,

    It was set to 1024 and now I've set it to 8000 ( we'll tweak it according to the usage later ).

    webpagetest.org - here you are able to see how much time needs every single request either for non cached or already cached load of your website. Very useful tool, you can use it in future.
