I am facing a courious issue with HESTIA.
We are worrking on a GRAV site with aprox 7k pages and two languages. The current dev server is a pure DEBIAN 10 with APACHE and mod php 7.3 (without any panel or HESTIA). On this development server (with very stadard settings for php and apache) we have no perfomances issues at all. wIth PECL YAML and APCu module installed it’s really a rocket considering the number of parsed pages.
We are now trying to test the staging server before to go live and I suggested the client to use HESTIA. Client agrees and he prefers NGINX only and PHP-FPM 8.0 on DEBIAN 11. So this is the HESTIA base setup for this staging server.
We installed PECL YAML and APCu and we are using the default GRAV template provided by HESTIA.
Everything is working fine, no errors or issues on any log (error logs, installation logs, system logs, etc)
Grav is up and running and all the checks are fine.
BUT PERFOMANCES are a way far from the development server with basic APACHE and PHP 7.3.
Both servers are almost identical from HW viewpoint (8 GB RAM, SSDs, 2 CPUs, High bandwith, etc).
Since are days we are struggling to understand the reason for these low perfomances within HESTIA, is there anyone with some tips for GRAV perfomances with HESTIA and/or some advice to point us to some missing configuration we are not aware?
