20 -30 seconds to load

Mar 3, 2012 at 6:02 PM

I used the web release of Blog Engine 2.5 for my blog.  The project must be a website project because there are no designer files that would accompany a web application project.  It takes 20-30 seconds for my blog to load for the first time each day.  I assume this is because the project has a lot of files, multiple dlls and it has to build each time for the initial loading.

Has anyone had this issue with it?  I'm thinking about using the source code, converting it to a web application project so it can be precompiled and puching this to the server.  This is assuming my theory is correct.

This is definitely not a normal behavior. If I"m not mistaken, sometimes enabling HTTP compression can trigger this for whatever reason - try to uncheck compression in admin/settings.

I did some reading on this and read about the http compression issue.  I unchecked this but it didn't help.

The stuff I read also had multiple people complaining about this, if GoDaddy was their host.   There were a couple reasons for the issue with them.  They are my host as well.   I'd rather not change this.

Do you think my idea of putting the source in a website project and the choosing "Convert to web app" to convert it is a good work around?  I could then release a precompiled version which should load much faster.  This seems like a fast way to solve it and keep it with my current hosting company. 

I don't know what else to do other than disabling http compression and precompiling it.

If that will work for you, sure. People convert to app project all the time, I'd look for already converted 2.5 and put it on the site to check if if will fix an issue.
