I can't upgrade the php version. I created a backup folder on the server with the mysql backup (phpmyadmin). For the files you can download it from ftp.

Hi Gianluigi,

Please could you update WPML to the latest version of WPML?

At this point you need to update manually by following the video that is in our blog:

Please, after you upgrade, let me know if the problem persists.

** Please, make a full backup of your site before upgrading WPML.

Thank you.

Hi Bruno,
I have updated wpml to the latest version but the problem persists.

Thank you. I updated the WPML to version 3.2.2 and it seems that your site is fast again. Updating posts is also working properly.

Please could you check?

Thank you.

You are having delays in testing installation as well?

If not, please could you disable all non-WPML plugins from your production environment to see which one is causing slowdowns?

This seems to be some incompatibility issue with other plugin.

Thank you.

Same issue in testing and production server. The time to saving is less now but it takes a lot of time to save.

I can not see your site slow. When I click on the "Update" button to update a post, it takes a maximum of 5 seconds.

Note that what might improve a little the performance of your site should be to upgrade PHP to a newer version - you are currently using version 5.2.

I'll send your ticket to the 2nd tier support. Soon they will get in touch.

Thank you.

Hello, I am George from second tier support.
I visited your site and I cannot see any slowness there - for me is saving the posts pretty fast.
I also modified and commented wp_lang definition in wp-config.php - this is known to cause some performance boost usually.
At this time, I would suggest you to try with a newer version of PHP - this is also known to improve performance.
