Super- Slow Processing , Errors

I downloaded WP Static yesterday to export my site (30 pages) to static HTML pages, but the plugin took literally all day to crawl the site and gave me an error encountered when processing files. Does the site crawler normally take this long? My server doesn't have too many resources so I have to go one at a time, but is there anything else I should know? I saw that the paid version only comes with community support as well. Do you guys know if there any way to get support from the developer or is this it?

    Hi Kristina,

    Sorry for the late reply, have been moving countries.

    Hard to tell about the server setup, but please try setting the Crawl Increment to Maximum under the Advanced tab. This should exponentially increase the crawl time if the server can handle it.

    Oh, I see you may already be doing that... I'd also suggest upgrading PHP to the latest possible. Each new version generally increases speed. nginx is also usually faster than Apache, but again, servers could be configured in a multitude of ways.

    With the next release, there is a price increase coming, but also direct line of support to me. It will be $120, up from $30, but anyone will be grandfathered in, so if you're considering a commercial license, within the next day is best to lock in the price.

    Let's discuss your server more, offline, if you prefer. A day to crawl is very slow and may be indicative of a greater issue...
