Why does the website slow down from 5 am – 6 am EST?
Daily ‘full site’ backups are running from 5 am – 6 am EST everyday. This site is huge! It takes a lot of processing power just to run it but then it takes even more to collect the 1.2 GBs, with all of the databases, settings and code. Then compress it and store it in the cloud.
As I continue to improve things I will do my best to stream-line the code, media and tweak the server settings for improved performance.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during those early morning hours!
