My Joomla site is very slow.

Post by ahdes » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:10 pm

My Joomla site is very slow.

Although I make the necessary settings from the global configuration and the htaccess file, the result does not change.

But there is a situation like this: When I change the name of the cache folder from cPanel and fix it again, the site is getting really fast. But after a while it slows down again.

What could be the reason for your decision?

Thank you for your answer.
The same situation is true when I select the default theme and then activate the real theme again.

Your JComments is 3.05 and not adapted to PHP 7.2.8. At Github there is a version 3.0.7 adapted for php 7. 3.07 is a security fix also.
viewtopic.php?f=715&t=962931&start=30
Your max_execution_time 3000 is high. I always use 30.

Thanks for answer.

I deleted the JComments component.

I add following in the top of my .htaccess file
php_value max_execution_time 30

But my site speed did not increase.

What else can I do?

Have you access to error logs? You can look for errors there. What do you mean by slow?
Have you tested your site here?

my site is usually uploaded in 10 seconds.
Google page speed: shorten server response time (10,1s FCP11,9s DCL)

error logs: There are lines like:
File not found [/home/mebakade/public_html/403.shtml]
# APVH_mebakademi.com] File not found [/home/mebakade/public_html/403.shtml]

What is "403.shtml" file?

*****
When I change the name of the cache folder from cPanel and fix it again, the site is getting really fast. But after a while it slows down again. Vert interesting.

403.shtml is an error page and it should not slow down.

You can test this speed test:
https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/d33s1s/htt ... m/demo/en/

After the test completed look at the bottom of the page and you might find what slows down. I found I had a hotlinked image that loaded very slowly.

Excuse me. I could not find hotlinked image. Could you add a link to the image, please?

The hotlinked image that slowed down was on my site and not yours. But I think you should check the database values in Joomla administration. You migh have wrong value there. Check first what your web hotel recommends and then what you actually have.
