WHM cPanel php-fpm Joomla 3 or 4 causing issues

Post by imfsub12 » Wed Jun 07, 2023 10:15 pm

Yes so my VPS today started to go nuts for my server load - they tell me that its my php-fpm

Most of them are using the latest version of Joomla 3.10.11 and some other ones are using Joomla 4

Could there be a bug in 3 or 4 that would allow the php-fmp to go crazy on my VPS.

Been using this server for 6 years and nothing like this has happened before

Just really lost on how to figure this issue out.

Please use the FPA and post the report (Forum Post Assistant - red box top of screen). Maybe post one report reflecting Joomla 3.10.11 for one problem site, and one for a J4 problem site, in separate replies on this thread.

Please enable PHP Error Reporting (both in Joomla and/or your PHP.ini file (or PHP options in WHM) and post any PHP errors and enable Debug and post any Stack Trace reports that could help narrow this down.

Perhaps a temporary issue, or some DDOS attack or something else, I am just guessing, and not an expert.

If it's your server, then that's the place to start to diagnose any issues.

You need to adjust settings of PHP-FPM in your control panel of the server. If you have no access to the panel connect with your host. You can find info on this when you Google for "php-fpm tuning high load"
