Help decipher logs from Bluehost

Hi, My site, techgardens dot com, has been slow and slower and often down since we moved to Bluehost. I just checked with them again, and the tech told me the error log showed it was my theme. While I'm sure my theme (Divi) is a factor, I looked at the error logs, attached, and our IP does not show up. 189.252.72.56 is not in there.

Maybe someone could help me decipher these logs and find out the real issue?

I don't see your logs but you can simply use a browser's dev tools such as Chrome. While viewing your site, hit the f12 key and that will open the dev tools. Click on Audit and run the audit for performance and best practices and that will help you uncover what is going on.

Also, just looking at the code, there are a lot of css files being accessed and some may be mixed up. For instance, https://techgardens.com/wp-content/plugins/product-enquiry-pro/wisdm-forms/views/css/bootstrap.min.css does not look like bootstrap css and it is not minifid. You can use sites like https://www.minifier.org/ to  minify your css and js files. Also, where it makes sense you can combine some files. I know this is not easy in WP sites.

Thanks for the info- that is certainly not bootstrap. w3eden? Weird. I will try to remove that and see if it makes a difference. I'll try the chrome audit too, great idea thanks.

Question- if I minify the js files, when I update the plugins they will likely be overwritten, right? Or not so right? Thanks.

Yes, you will delete them. Make sure you have a back up.  There may be some ways to load things only as you need them as well.  But start by magnifying and combining where it makes sense. If they are generated by plug ins then just make sure they are compressed/minified.

I only quickly looked at your logs. Start by finding the errors like, "failed to open stream: No such file or directory in " and make sure those files are on the server, then go back and see where you are.

Ok, thanks. Mind if I leave this open, in case I have a couple more questions?
