    The list of things that could possibly make a website run slowly intermittently is a mile long and you've told us almost nothing about the issue (your setup / platform / host, any changes you've made, anything else happening on the server, etc) that could even hint at the cause. If you're serious about figuring this out, I'd buckle in for a long diagnosis and start digging for as many details as you can find.

    Sorry, I am kinda newbie in computer area,, I am using godaddy, and I have many plugins

    I am using default for my theme... I have no idea, why sometimes forum runs fast and sometimes runs extremly slow.. I have not made changes, but I have uploaded many posts.. everyday I upload about 10-15 posts..
    Is it because I am using macbook.. or posting media stuff..?

    Your problem is probably that GoDaddy hosting is awful.

    I have tested hosting server with "readme.html" and it was really fast.. so i guess its my forum's problem.. isn't it??

    Switch on the debugger plugin and see how long your SQL's are taking.

    The db server is more than likely the problem and it's performance isn't going to be tested by serving html files.

    if its dbserver problem, is there anyway to fix it?

    That is not a db server problem. Something else.

    Just looking at your site I think it might be the Minify plugin causing the problem.

    Try disabling it.

    There's nothing wrong with the db performance, it must be something else.

    @Sephj An html file is simply displayed by the server; it requires almost zero resources to do. Processing PHP scripts actually requires the server to work.

    There's almost nothing you can troubleshoot about GoDaddy hosting. It's barrel-bottom cheap hosting and you get what you pay for. The likelihood is so overwhelming that it's bad hosting that it seems like a waste to try finding a possible problem in your config.
