Turns out having the SQL server and NamelessMC on the same device obliterates any waiting time. I guess all the constant SQL communication rom two different servers was bogging down requests.
So I just installed NamelessMC with these specs:
Apache2, PHP 7.2, Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, OVH VPS SSD 2
And I noticed it was running incredibly slowly. I tried it with a different browser and came to the conclusion that browser speed wasn't the problem. I used an online tool to generate a report, but all I can gather from it is that the site just plain takes a while to load.
At first I would have assumed that this is just something with the VPS and I need to upgrade, but when comparing it with my LiteBans installation in the same folder, the report showed only 1.3-1.5 seconds to load, and personally it loads way faster on my end.
Doing a comparison between the two, I wanted to know if there is anything I can do to help this, or make the loading times for Nameless go down. Any help would be greatly appreaciated!
