WordPress Performance issue on Azure

Jeff Cleath 181 Reputation points

We have a wordpress web site on Microsoft Azure and can't seem to get it to perform. We have checked the typical issues I have seen listed such as deployment regions and can't get it to perform faster than about 7-10 seconds a page.

Anyone have suggestions?

    Hi @Jeff Cleath ,

    I would enable Applicaiton Insights, see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/usage-analytics-for-wordpress-with-azure-app-insights/, to determine your latency is occurring. There could be any number of issues, such as badly performing plugin, database optimizations, compressing images using WP Smush It or lazy loading them if you have a lot.

    For plugins, I would also suggest using debug objects and query monitor to see if there is an offending plugin. If you're running your WordPress site in a lower SKU like Free or Shared, I would also suggest scaling up your app service plan to a dedicated plan starting with Basic and see if there is any improvement.

    Really there is something wrong with WEB APP WordPress in Azure, because the performance is very low below the other platforms in machines with a very low resources, I did all the recommendations however the problem not change, what’s the key really to solve this issue? may be Azure is not supporting really Wordpress under linux?
    Do you have a success story? Please help me before I look for other Cloud provider.
