    Here are a few ways you can reduce the loading time of your make wp admin faster.

    Define the WordPress admin slowness problem - troubleshooting

    If your WordPress dashboard is loading extremely slowly, you’ll have to find actual reasons behind it and thus resolve the issue. Follow the troubleshooting guide below to find what causes the high load time.

    Note: Make sure you take a backup of the site so in case if something goes wrong, you can easily revert.

    Step 1: Find whether any plugin is causing high loading time

    Deactivate all plugins to see if this resolves the issue. If it solves, re-activate plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    Step 2: Find whether any theme is causing high loading time

    If there is no issue with the plugin, switch to the default theme, say Twenty Fifteen to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    Step 3: Re-upload wp-admin and wp-includes folders

    If the issue is not with the plugins and themes, try re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.
