We are having a checkout problem, our site is taking MINUTES not seconds . We have customer trying to checkout and reporting that the system is taking 5 - 8 minutes to process on submit. We have of course tested it ourselves, and it does take every bit of 5 minutes to process.
I think we have optimize Apache and the db all we can. We will look into the Magento setting in “Developer”, Thanks for the advice.
I don’t know if it helps anybody that is willing to help us trouble shoot our problem but, it also takes an unusually long time to login to the admin. Not the 5 minutes like the checkout but, a good 45 sec.
It could possibly be database lag… a little more information about your environment would be nice. Is this on a dedicated server with the web server and database server on the same box? Also is this a new store with this problem or a store that was working fine in the past that all of a sudden has this problem?
