    Is it just my connection or other people notice the same? WordPress is running really slow.

    The blog I need help with is ismailimail.wordpress.com.

    Howdy,

    Nope, it’s not just you. We’ve received scattered reports of slowness across WordPress.com which we are actively investigating.

    No access to one blog:
    http://senmcglinn.wordpress.com (connection was reset error message)

    but the other one works slowly :
    http://sensday.wordpress.com

    Perhaps because the front page on the first one is heavier?

    All 4 of my blogs in progress were down at midday, started working again, and really struggling to access them again now… think I’m going to finish some photoshop work instead…

    bbPress
    Oh dear!

    An invalid configuration file was found at bb-config.php
    The installation cannot continue.

    Usually this is caused by one of the database connection settings being incorrect. Make sure that the specified user has appropriate permission to access the database.

    bbPress is already installed.

    Perhaps you meant to run the upgrade script instead?

    I’ve noticed it running slowly for a few days now and this morning I can’t access my blog at all. This is my second try at posting to this forum. The first attempt brought up an error message.

    Having trouble loading various wordpress.com blogs this morning, getting various error messages.

    http://bermudaonion.net/ Loaded on about my 5th try,
    http://unfinishedperson.com/ is taking forever to load (still hasn’t not sure if it will but it probably won’t at this rate).

    We’re currently battling a sporadic non-trivial DDoS attack. We’ll post here again when we have another update.

    I have the same problem. My blog keeps dropping the connection. I have tried loading some other blogs at the same time and it is the same problem.

    WP is buggy. Somthing is wrong over here too…

    #578493

    Thanks for the update, hewsut and Timethief. Appreciate it. Will stand by. Luckily, I didn’t have anything to post today anyway.

    This is not a BUG! This is a series of non-trivial ie. serious DDOS (direct denial of service) attacks by hackers on the wordpress.com servers. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/wordpress-running-really-slow?replies=16#post-567880

    How can we help? By logging out and decreasing the demand on the servers while Staff work on the backend.
