WordPress Admin super slow, is it normal?


I’m using local by Flywheel (on Windows) for the first time to create a brand new website. But it’s super super slow to work on it, is it normal ? I tried to desactivate many plug ins, but it still the same. The only one not desactivated is “page builder”, would it be because of that? Any idea ?

Thank you !


Hey @floriethielin, sorry about the super, super slow experience :frowning_face: Let’s get Local roaring like the lion it was born to be :lion:

Below is a list of possible solutions/problems. If you would, please try both the first 2 items and see if that corrects the problem. If it doesn’t, hopefully the next 2 will help shed some light on the problem.

  1. Faster Docker Volumes may not be enabled. Navigate to Preferences » Advanced to enable Faster Docker Volumes
  2. There is DNS delay. Enable IPv6 Loopback under Preferences » Advanced
  3. There is a slow query, slow outbound request, or something of that nature causing the pages to load slower. Query Monitor is a great tool to check.
  4. In some cases, the computer running Local can cause a slowdown due to other applications running, lack of an SSD, slower processor, etc.

Thanks, and let us know how it goes!


It worked out by following your advice, thank you so much ! :smiley:


So glad to hear that worked for you :smiley: Let us know if you need anything else.
