I have had extreme slowdown on my website for few days now

Was trying to locate the issue but didnt manage, then i checked if it may be some bots slowing down the website, i activated "People Online", in an hour it showed 700 people, normally i get about 1200 traffic each day when checking google analytics

What i want to know could it be the main issue for website becoming this slow because of bots?

Even when logging in to admin panel it have become slow 50s, loading a product takes about 30s, even when cached 20s

Iam running Opencart with Journal2 on dedicated server

Please if anyone can help

It looks like it might be due to the server. Check the CPU usage.

Journal can be quite a resource intensive theme unfortunately.

For quick, professional OpenCart support please email
