Size of session table and speed of site

Post by Andrew998 » Sat Feb 24, 2018 11:18 am

I've had a number of sites slow down recently. On checking the datbases they were unusually large and when I looked the session table was growing out of control (hundreds of megabytes). Old entires simply aren't being deleted.

This is happeing across a range of servers and sites.

Can other people check this please and let me know before I report it as a bug?

Thanks

Andrew

Thanks for pointing to that, I hadn't found it (mainly because it was hidden in a slightly unrealated thread). So it is a known issue and, hopefully, fixed in the next release. I hope it is because it is a very big problem for many of my users.

There is a fix in the post from Rubik-Kubic.

I don't want to have to install a plugin to overcome a core issue and then have to remove it when the next version of Joomla is released.
