Site slow and server overload

Post by Passie_1_5 » Thu Nov 14, 2019 11:36 am

Hi,
I'm running Joomla 3.9.13 with virtuemart 3.6.8.
But site is extremely slow (front & backend)
Hosting needs to restart httpd once in a while.
Looks like some processes are hanging and using all server capacity.
All plugins are upto date and unused are diabled.

Anyone know what could be done to find the problem.
Is it save to reinstall latest joomla update again to maybe repair some issues?

Regards,
Pas

Folders 777 should be 755 files should be 644 (configuration.php 444)

To investigate, and check the hack possibility, try this process: viewtopic.php?f=714&t=946026 and also if not already subscribed, run a site audit on mysites.guru. This is will identify any suspect issues. The first audit is free, but otherwise, is a subscription service.

Your host may also have scanning tools that could help identify any issues with 'rogue' processes.

Can you temporarily disable VirtueMart extensions (not uninstall, just disable) to see if there's a performance improvement? Can you identify what processes are hanging, or what joomla extension might be causing it?

I don't know if this section of the FPA would have any significance:
Database Information :: wrote:
Database statistics :: Uptime: 103020 | Threads: 47 | Questions: 7061752 | Slow queries: 21 | Opens: 1820 | Flush tables: 1 | Open tables: 1677 | Queries per second avg: 68.547 |
Perhaps simply optimising your database could help. Try Akeeba Admin tools and use its Optimise DB tables function.

Also, since those folders with 777 seem mostly associated with virtue mart, and if VM is setting them as 777 automatically, that's an issue to raise with them. Check in your cPanel file manager or use an FTP program to check and fix those file permissions.

Change the session handler from database to php (none) in Global Configuration.

Thanks, where did you notice this and should this be changed in backend settings?

Yes @Per Yngve Berg just advised you to change the session handler in Global Configuration.

See the FPA section below: (highlighted red):

Thank you!
Is this only for php7.3 or should this be used standard for all sites? What is the difference between database and php?

I don't understand the technicalities other than reading frequently on this forum the advice that "php" session handler is better than "database", but it's not just a PHP 7.3 thing. The option is in Global Configuration (or can be changed in the configuration.php file directly).

It works with all 7.x versions of php.
