Raspberry Pi Webserver w/ Wordpress Slow

I installed the LAMP stack on a Raspberry Pi, then moved a small Wordpress site to it. It then got plugged into a fast connection at a data center.

Before the move (shared hosting webserver at Siteground):

  • 1 second load times on the main page
After the move (Raspberry Pi):
  • 8-9 second load times on the main page
  • 5 second load times on single pages
The Pi does a good job at displaying static pages, but it does not run more intensive things like a CMS quickly enough.
