I’ve been using Buddypress Media and lately my website is extremely slow. My server is hooked up to New Relic and sure enough I find the following in my New Relic account:
Slowest components Count Duration% api.freemius.com220,000 ms 88%
So I started digging around on the server:
public_html $ sudo grep -r 'api.freemius.com' *
And I found:
wp-content/plugins/buddypress-media/lib/freemius/includes/class-freemius.php: '<b>' . implode( ', ', $this->apply_filters( 'api_domains', array( 'api.freemius.com' ) ) ) . '</b>' ) wp-content/plugins/buddypress-media/lib/freemius/includes/class-freemius.php: 'firstname.lastname@example.org', // recipient wp-content/plugins/buddypress-media/lib/freemius/includes/sdk/Freemius.php: define( 'FS_API__ADDRESS', '://api.freemius.com' ); wp-content/plugins/buddypress-media/lib/freemius/includes/sdk/Freemius.php: define( 'FS_API__SANDBOX_ADDRESS', '://sandbox-api.freemius.com' );
Which is fine, I guess this plugin is used for differentiating between free/payed plugins, but it’s making my website extremely slow! So slow I had to disable the entire plugin, which is a shame, I was about to purchase two addons because the plugin + addons is exactly what I am looking for.
Anybody here who is experiencing the same as me?
