Backend Really slow

Postby horatiub » Thu Aug 24, 2006 5:15 am

Does anybody else experience this?

It seems to be really slow, and I know it's not my internet connection.

Could it be your host?  ??? Are your paths all pointing to the correct domain? (I ask because I am running my installation on a test URL on my server, we haven't moved the actual .com name to the server yet. However my backend was running slow because the paths  in Joomla config were all pointing to the .com which was hosted on another server, slowing down the whole admin area. Once i fixed the paths it worked like a charm).

the front end seems fine, not as snappy as other sites, but better than the backend

Weird... One of the differences between the front & back-end is that the front-end works with cookies, the back-end with sessions. But I don't think that that would make such a performance difference...

What browser do you have? Could you try the performance when you use another browser (e.g. FireFox)?

Check your log files for things like 404 errors... if it is not finding a file it can lead to problems like that.

That sounds like a logical explanation indeed: some files that are only requested by the back-end, are missing....

Furthermore you could check your .htaccess file. Maybe it contains some special commands for the /administrator directory which slow it down.

Badly configured PHP and MYSQL can make sessions crawl (depending on which of the 2 handles the sessions)

Its by far the most common causes for performance problems people experience in Joomla. Crappy configured server backends.

That anoying 20 second delay before page loads bug people have been nagging about is also related to this.

I had the same problem with the Administrator backend, very very slow, while the frontend worked OK.

I have changed my settings in Internet Options>Privacy>Advance to allow "session cookies", this has solved all my problems. ;D

I've been experiencing this since day one and it is really annoying. Every time I want to make a small change in a content, I have to wait like 1 minute for the page to be ready. No problems in frontend, works very fast.

Any suggestions?

Did you try pilgrim's suggestion in MS Internet Explorer?

Have you tried installing another browser like FireFox, to test if it's browser or site/server related?

I have Windows in another language and I couldn't do what pilgrim said. When I go to Advanced in Privacy, I see AutoComplete, not Session Cookies.

Okay I just tried Firefox and yes you are right, there's a huge difference. I'll explain here for those that might have the same problem. For me, Internet Explorer is loading the Tiny MCE buttons each time I want to edit a page. I don't know how to solve that, and that is what's slowing the backend.

When I tried the same in Firefox, it needed to load the buttons only once.

Thanks for the help.  ;)

Thanks for that follow-up!

In categories (also sections?) you can select the images folders that should be used with a specific category.
I think it's used by the default tinyMCE.
Maybe JCE uses that setting too, and possibly you could increase your site's performance by selecting only a couple of image folders (within at a category in the Category Manager).

Could you disable the mosimage mambot (in Mambots), to see if you gain any performance?
(You won't use that mambot anyway, as you are using JCE).

My backend started getting slow once I moved my site to a different server. I will check configuration.php and .htaccess again.

Did this fix work? are the images you are referring to just to images i have uploaded or every single image in the media folder?
Thanks,

OKay, something strange is going on.

I had the same thing in Google Chrome.

Frontend was great, backend was change, wait a minute, change, wait another minute, change, wait another minute.

So I searched for the session cookies under the Chrome options. Could not really find it. So no changes made in the options part of Chrome.

Took another look at the backend and.... WTF??? Now it is like fingersnap its there ! No more waiting.

I don't understand ? How is this possible. It really looks like a browser problem.

I had this problem and tried all the solutions posted here. No of which worked so I tried disabling each plugin until I found the problem. It was the 'System - Rokbox' & ' Content - Rokbox' plugins dragging my backend to a crawl.

So, if you've installed any third party components, modules, or plugins from Rockettheme, I'd try disabling those and see if it fixes the problem.

** I know this is an old thread but obviously still a problem, and hopefully it will help others searching for a solution

@Chris Vile - it is an old thread for Joomla 1.0, so I assume you are talking about mambots? :-)

Ah I got something to work for me immediately. Cache was off under global config but still turned on under plugins (maybe form an extension) I turned it off and no more delay.

Hi folks, I am new to Joomla :pop
As far as I know I did install version 1.5.25 latest stable release as of 11 November I think than I installed some extensions and plug-ins sexy bookmark, news flash,... at last vertuemart. Actually I am learning so I grabbed many stuff on the way :p

In deed, it was a mess the front page displaying many errors and the back-end too slow to login or to display some sections. I removed all the extensions with no success, at last last I decided to do the ZZ-top thing. A new Install.

I experienced the same issue again with a clean install, too mush time to log-in and then too mush time to load some sections like global panel.

I did change nothing but one thing while I am writing this message I am connected to Internet.
This after noon I spent too mush time waiting now it's up and running.

So is there any background remote call that hungs up when offline or is it because of the extensions missing with some *.conf files on the OS?

my original configuration still the same Vbox with linux additions, and the CS-50 appliance as guest OS (a VM image of fedora 15 pre-installed with PHPmyAdmin, mySQL, Apache)

I solved this problem by disabling my SIFR3 plugin... this happened on 3 of my sites and this was the prob!
