Performance Issues with Ubuntu 22.04 and MariaDB 10.6: Slower Speed and Constant Timeouts


I can confirm the problem: link

I also had the same problem about six months ago, but it was resolved with another update and everything went back to normal.

Now, with a fresh installation, I am experiencing the same issue again, where it runs slower even though the server has two additional CPU cores. The hosting provider and CPU model remain the same.

The only difference is that I am now using Ubuntu 22.04 (previously Debian 12 with MariaDB 10.11) with MariaDB 10.6 and installation with “–multiphp yes” option. However, this should not have any significant impact that would cause constant timeouts, which I did not have before.

Today or tomorrow, I will try using MyVesta. On another server with HestiaCP v1.8.7 and two additional CPU cores but higher load due to two large websites running, using Ubuntu 22.04 and MariaDB 10.11, it works much better.

I believe that the problem is more likely related to the latest Apache version or another new version of Nginx. Many changes have been made to Apache in the area where I encountered the errors. Here is the link to the changes:

In particular, you can often see changes for ‘mod_proxy_http2’ there. This is how the error looked before:

[Mon Jan 22 14:09:58.780514 2024] [proxy_fcgi:error] [pid 3623331:tid 140657670735424] (70007)The timeout specified has expired: [client IP Adress:0] AH01075: Error dispatching request to : (polling), referer: )

I think something with the changes to ‘mod_proxy_http2’ is not working properly.

In any case, it now runs perfectly with myVesta, Debian 11 with MariaDB 10.6 and Apache/2.4.56.
