Joomla! 4.2.1 slow page load

Post by andrewatya » Thu Sep 01, 2022 10:50 am

Since I have updated to J 4.2.1 (from a previous 4th version), my site slowed down. Also the frontend and the administration site is very slow. I tried to inactivate all the plugins, modules etc and change the template to the basic Cassiopeia but nothing. I have a Nicepage template, a 8.1 php version, max mem: 128, max imput time: 60, max file upload: 64, however those was not changed before slowing.

I did some check, but only a "html" load/request looks like a slow element and no more information about it. So I don't know what happens in the back on pageload.
My page: https://biankagyerekcipo.hu
Test:
https://www.webpagetest.org/result/2209 ... _request25
https://www.dotcom-tools.com/website-sp ... isit=first

I have no idea what can slow down my page one day to next. I have wrote to my provider.

Thank you if you have any suggestion!

I can confirm this. I upgraded two Joomla installations to 4.2.1. and the pageload speed is about 10 seconds. Another Joomla installation on the same server with v4.1.8. works just fine in under 2 seconds.

I can confirm this as well.

After trying the standards:

Restoring files and database
Optimizing databases
Removing files and database and rebuilding them
Tried diffferent php versions and settings
Tried optimizing pictures
Tried turning off modules
Tried the standard cassiopia theme

Nothing worked.

Installed an old version: working fine, after upgrading: pages on the front and backend load very slow (6+ seconds per page).

I experienced the same with a new J4.2.1 website this morning.
In my case it was the plugin "System - WebAuthn Passwordless Login" that caused it.
I disabled that plugin to solve the performance issue.

Your issue might be the same as this reported bug, see: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/38662
There's a PR available: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/38664

Merci. On avait le même problème du côté de la France avec la 4.2.1. ;)
Mais c'est réglé en désactivant le plugin 'Système - Connexion WebAuthn sans mot de passe "
Merci, merci, merci!

It cost me the half day yesterday - checking around all over two installations to find the issue.
Now - after having found your post, problem gone within 1 minute! Sites are fast like hell again :)
