Slowly loading pages

Our digital collections run extremely slowly. I tried to open an 83 page PDF ( , and it took 6 min. 48 sec. to load. Even regular pages take a long time to load, although not nearly as long as the PDFs. Does anyone know why it would be taking so long? We host through DreamHost, so I have also contacted them.

Your site is generally quite slow but I’m not seeing anything on the order of minutes like you’re describing, even when loading that big PDF.

Actually viewing a PDF doesn’t really involve Omeka much at all, it’s just your browser downloading the file and rendering it.

Checking with your host, as you’ve already mentioned, is probably your best move.
