Website is so slow

Hey guys! I hope you’re doing all fine
I’m having problems with my website, Yesterday I installed discourse on fresh domain and on fresh droplet with 2GB ram , 1 CPU and 50 GB hard disk, It was running fine … and this morning I installed two plugins in discourse
1: Discourse voting
2: Discourse whose online plugin
still, it was running fine enough
but after some time now It’s so slow … when I type my website address it takes so much time to even load up the website and after it completely loads the website … it takes so much time to go to any page … overall

Hi! I’m using this plugin on two forums.

Is there a way to monitor the performance variations depending on the number of connected users? It’s not like I can try different numbers at will… :slight_smile:
