wordpress keeps timing out when I'm editing site

I hope someone can help.

Frequently when I try to edit my wordpress site, I get 'time out' errors. Eventually I'm able to get back to editing but this happens frequently and is getting quite frustrating.

First let me warn you that I am a novice and I'm editing a site with about 40 pages/posts. I've eliminated all the plugins that I don't need and I have tried deactivating one by one those that I do. I haven't found a culprit.

Any help would be appreciated

** I'm using Chrome and MS Edge for editing. I am a novice but am skilled enough to access ftp through filezilla and do minor editing. I'm not very knowledgeable with coding.

HI @TimTNiet,


What platform and theme are you currently using?   Some of the larger mega-themes are a bit slow out of the box on small servers. 


If you are on a managedwp platform and using a caching plugin, this can happen.  If you are on a cPanel and do not have a caching plugin, install one (WPRocket and Comet Cache are two I use).  


These are just starting points, but hope this helps,
