I recently installed CloudLinux + as my server OS, and it includes a feature called X-Ray. X-Ray is used to identify slow database calls, PHP scripts, etc. I ran it for 1 hour earlier today on my site, which is a WordPress site currently undergoing renovation. The image I uploaded is but one of many traces performed by X-Ray this morning, and the consistent top offender in almost every case is your plugin. Before I seek assistance elsewhere, I wanted to start privately with you, the plugin author.

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

I'm not familiar with X-Ray, but we have a guideline on how to detect which queries are problematic: Please install the Debug Objects plugin and run the tests as mentioned and provide us with your results via a Pastebin file.

Then, please provide us with a site copy via Duplicator to repeat the tests on my localhost. I recommend you test also on a minimal environment using only WPML with a default theme to detect any incompatibility issues.

But before you run these tests, please check out our minimal requirements, as your server has a very low WP_MEMORY_LIMIT configured. From 768MB PHP Limit, your WP installation is only allowed to use 40MB. You can increase the value as mentioned here: Y

Also, we recommend using any form of caching plugin:

Please let me know once you checked this.

Best Regards
