Hey I'm running a Windows Virtual machine with virtualbox inside of an ubuntu dedicated server, I ran a speed test at speedtest.net and it returned 74MB/s download and 44 MB/s Upload speed on the guest. The guest is running windows server 2008. I am using WAMP, i've tried xampp already and no cigar! I have uncommented

EnableMMAP off EnableSendfile off

and that didn't help I tried regediting the keys for the files and nothing changed, what is causing apache to be transfering files so slow? It takes me about 1 minuet to download a 14mb file and about 2 to 3 hours to download 1.7 gigs which usually takes only 30 minuets

I believe this has something to do with the virtual machine or windows itself as i tried with iis and I get the same thing –  Dylan Dodds Apr 1 '13 at 20:46
