If you make your living doing anything remotely related to the Internet, then you too have been approached by a family member or friend requesting help on a technical issue. So it was that I was recently enlisted to speed up a WordPress-based site that was performing slowly. Not just slowly but glacially (if that metaphor still applies in an era of global warming). It was so slow that the home page would regularly take ten or fifteen seconds to load. Or it wouldn't load at all and you'd eventually wind up with a less than welcoming 500 error. An unsustainable state of affairs.
