I suspect that either a security patch or removing SQL has had a serious adverse affect on BlogEngine. I am running BlogEngine 1.6.1 and pages can take over 5 minutes to load. The system was working properly initially (a few seconds to load the page) and
I wasn't using it for several months - now it is pathetic. When pages eventually load, everything is fine
ASP.NET seems to be running properly as the settings pages load properly.
I thought I am using the default BlogEngine XML rather than SQL but if the system is looking for SQL, it will of course time out and then work properly.
Server - Win2008 Advanced in a VM, adequate RAM and disk.
I have disabled unnecessary extensions, removed compress etc. but am now at my wits end with what to do.
Further reason that I suspect it is a database issue - posting content also takes minutes. I would prefer not to have to reinstall SQL if at all possible.
