I had Magento 2.0.4 instance running on vagrant machine:

  • CentOS 6.5
  • PHP 7.0.1
  • MySQL 5.6.31

I've upgraded to 2.1 with composer but then when I tried to run

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

I get noticed that PHP version is not supported and needed to upgrade [release notes]. So I've upgraded to PHP 7.0.8 and then my Magento starts to work very slow (about 45 sec for any frontend page). I tried to downgrade Magento to 2.0.4 but still working slow. I assume that is from the PHP version upgrade.

When I turned on caches it works normal.

Did anyone had this issue and know how to resolve it?

    I confirm. Have the same situation with an update two days ago. No solution at the moment. I can even add, that 7.1 is not compatible yet (which already obvious due to Magento 2 requirements) – Sylvain Rayé Jul 14 '16 at 19:43
  • something that works really well is to in phpstorm add a filewatcher, and clear the cache when you make changes to the files you are working on (clearout all the var/* folder). That way you can leave the caches on. I found Magento 2 works very poorly without caches and is not even useable. My filewatcher looks like this: screencast.com/t/NIubvk0kn and the clearcache.sh script is this: /bin/rm -Rf /var/www/html/magento2/var/* you can also do something similar with a .bat file if you are in windows – Kevin Chavez Jul 14 '16 at 20:21

    @KevinJavitz I cleared var folder but this is not the problem. I am pretty sure now that is from the PHP version because it's working normally on PHP 5.6 (same magento instance) and If I switch to PHP 7.0.8 it's ~5 times slower. – Miroslav Petroff Jul 15 '16 at 6:31

    Same here. M 2.1 + PHP 7 is extremely slow, which is ironic. It's even hosted in a monster server with 32gb ram and dual octa-core processors. T_T. Magento 1.9.3 is wayyyyyyyy faster on PHP 5.6 with minimum specs. – jehzlau Nov 7 '16 at 22:36
