I've had the same problem.

My solution was disabling the GoogleSitemap ping feature. When enabled, every time you hit save & publish, silverstripe sends a notice to google, so that they know to re read the sitemap.xml
In my case, the webserver, silverstripe is running on, is behind a firewall which blocks all outgoing data.
After disabling this feature in mysite/_config.php


save & publish works fine and as fast as it should be.

Perhaps this could also be a solution for you.

I need the same modification but couldnt find that string in _config.php
Is that something about my release (2.2.2) or I'll add it manually?

If yes something like that


global $project;
$project = 'mysite';

global $databaseConfig;
$databaseConfig = array(
	"type" => "MySQLDatabase",
	"server" => "localhost", 
	"username" => "username", 
	"password" => "password", 
	"database" => "database",

// Sites running on the following servers will be
// run in development mode. See
// for a description of what dev mode does.

// This line set's the current theme. More themes can be
// downloaded from

Hi evren,

you are right. Just put that line in your mysite/_config.php.

This feature is enabled by defaut so you will not find an entry like GoogleSitemap::enable() or so.

Thanks for your solution.

Maybe your firewall matter gets attentions and it will be fixed to save the page even it can ping to google or not.
