Submit form process taking minutes to complete

  1. eljefe949

    I run gravity forms in easy fancybox and have a the same form running a few times on the same pages.

    All of which was working great.

    added w3 total cache and still all working great.

    All of the sudden noticed submissions were off, tried the form and it takes forever to submit. Minutes.

    Ran all of the tests mentioned in the forums. Knocked out all plugins — only had 4 running anyway, G xml sitemaps, thesis openhook, easy fancybox and W3.

    Tried submitting the form within the form preview with all plugins off and it still lagged.

    I am hosting with dreamhost and have contacted support to which they have replied all looks normal on their end.

    Forms are here with easy fancybox

    Here is a standalone form

    Exported my form and emailed you my xml file Chris.

    I also have moved the file to another install on a different server (same webhost though - dreamhost) and it lagged there as well.

    Built a new form and tried that to no avail.

    Completely un-installed and re-installed gravity to no avail.

    Please Help!

  2. I have not yet received your email. When I do, I will install the form on my server to see how it responds. Sounds like something in the host configuration, maybe a security setting.

  4. I installed the form on my server and it took between 4 and 5 seconds to submit and display the confirmation text. There is definitely something going on with your server or installation.

  6. I have the same problem on my site where I actually measured the time at 50 seconds before the form processed. I'm not a techie, but the form takes way too long. Any help would be appreciated.

  7. Have you already checked for theme and plugin conflicts by following these instructions ?

    Please share a link to the page on your site where we can see the form and test it for ourselves. Thank you.

  8. We go it figured out. It was a server setting opposed to the form itself. Thanks for getting back to us. greatly appreciated.

  9. What was the server setting which was causing the delay? I'm sure your experience will help someone else resolve a similar problem in the future.

  11. @triplestrength: Any chance you could share the server setting that was causing this? We are seeing the same thing ( form submissions are very slow ) and not seeing anything that should be causing it.

    @leon4u: Any chance you figured this out and wouldn't mind sharing what fixed it for you?
