I mean, ask your host why loading that file is loading so slow, as on all the other phpbb boards it is just loading normal.

or better, search for a host who knows where he is talking about.

janus_zonstraal advised:

So I did.
I am afraid that we can not offer such debugging information or details why the script takes so long to be loaded.
What my colleague have done was to run a test using the browser Inspect option while loading the website.
We do not offer script debugging service and there are no such detailed logs what your scripts attempt to process. This is additional advantage of the VPS accounts that you will have full access to your VPS and you should be able to trace your PHP processes on your own.
If there is anything else we can help with, please let us know.
I Consider a VPS.

What's your advise?

Could you manage a VPS? I’d be inclined to have a good read about it before you jump that way. A VPS isn’t necessarily going to make any difference, will they give you one for free?

Just take a good "Dutch" host and you will have a fast board, no need for a VPS with only 26 members.

I'd make sure the host has enabled Opcache and they know about Opcache's file cache.
I wrote the thing that does BBCodes in 3.2.

LS
Maybe this could be a solution for my forum too?
Solved:

So, as you said, I have contacted my server host.
Asked him if he know what this cron.php is, he said that he didn't know what this is, so we guessed, that there may be an option somewhere in the Administration Control Panel about this cron jobs.. After 5 minutes of search, I have found it:

General > Server Settings >

Run periodic tasks from system cron:
When off, phpBB will arrange for periodic tasks to be run automatically. When on, phpBB will not schedule any periodic tasks by itself; a system administrator must arrange for bin/phpbbcli.php cron:run to be run by the system cron facility at regular intervals (e.g. every 5 minutes).

Turn this to No. The text says that this time, the system admin must arrange the cron to run periodically for example after every 5 minutes.. So My host has changed it to run in every hour. This made all of my periodic Update statements (- all the 80000, these statements ran for 2 minutes), which seems completely pointless to run in every one hour. So, this made my forum to be slow in every hour for 2 minutes. This way, my forum worked correctly. even thoug this background job ran once in every hour. So I though, why not run it once a day, when everyone is asleep at night.

This is my solution.
Should I consult the host about this?

If your host can’t sort their own servers out then it would be a good idea to find a better host
I’d definitely be planning to move to another host if I were you.
