Running 3.2.4, and clicking on "new field" which calls
/[admin]/settings/fields/new times out on our AWS servers where the DB is hosted in the cloud. It isn't an issue when everything's running
localhost, but that's the only things we can see as a difference between them.
On the AWS hosted site, the CP and front end become unresponsive for that user in that browser for 15-20 minutes, but a newly created session from another browser works.
Could anyone else who similarly has their DB hosted on another machine try clicking Settings->Fields->New and see if it returns fast?
