One more time my Site is creating too much load on mysql server, and this probably because of SEF404.

(SEF) Allows Search Engine Friendly URLS for apache and IIS, returns proper 404 status code for missing content, provides logging of 404 errors, and creation of special "shortcut" URLs that allow the user to redirection to the new URL.

My ranking will probably go down for a while, since in 2 weeks my url are constantly changing on my homepage. In between I have installed OpenSEF

OpenSEF is an open source advanced SEF component for Joomla!/Mambo/OSM which enables automatic and manual text-based search engine friendly URLs for core and 3rd-party components. One goal of the OpenSEF project is to create relationships with many 3rd-party component developers to ensure that OpenSEF works immediately and flawlessly with all components.

I've patched Joomla kernel to display some interesting information in one log file on server: because Joomla normaly output only sql statement in user browser.

The file contains all queries executed per user

user has executed  82 queries
queryId    dateAndTime   queryExecution   sqlQuery

the code is below in click read more

  1. create a file logger.php and place it under the root of Joomla


defined( '_VALID_MOS' );

/** a small hack to display all queries executed by joomla per page
* @authors Walter Cedric
if ($mosConfig_debug) {

if ( !function_exists('fopen') ||
!function_exists('fclose') ||
!function_exists('fwrite') )

$file = fopen($mosConfig_absolute_path.'/sqllogs.txt', 'a');
die("File failed to open");
} else{

$msg = $databas-->_ticker . " queries executed for user\n";
foreach ($database->_log as $k=>$sql) {
$msg .= $k+1 . " " . $sql."\n";

$status = fwrite($file, $msg);
die("sqllog write failed...");



2. open index.php and replace
// displays queries performed for page
if ($mosConfig_debug) {
 echo $database->_ticker . ' queries executed';
 echo '<pre>';
  foreach ($database->_log as $k=>$sql) {
   echo $k+1 . "\n" . $sql . '<hr />';
//add by
3. Open /includes/database.php and replace line 261 what's in boldglobal $mosConfig_debug;
  if ($this->_limit > 0 || $this->_offset > 0) {
   $this->_sql .= "\nLIMIT $this->_offset, $this->_limit";
  $this->_errorNum = 0;
  $this->_errorMsg = '';
  if ($this->_debug) {
     $this->_log[] = $this->_sql;
  $this->_cursor = mysql_query( $this->_sql, $this->_resource );
//add by
  if ($this->_debug) {
     $start = microtime();

  $this->_cursor = mysql_query( $this->_sql, $this->_resource );  
  if ($this->_debug) {
     $this->_log[] = "".date('Y.m.d H:i:s')." ".round(microtime()-$start, 4)." '".str_replace("\n", " ", $this->_sql);
4. Create a file
sqllogs.txt under Joomla root and chmod to 666
5. To start logging, open configuration.php 
and set $mosConfig_debug = '0'; to $mosConfig_debug = '1';

Quick and dirty, but it is late 23:00 PM and I still have to go for time I will do it better:

  • export a CSV file, rotating logs, and so on....
