I am working on a tiny little PHP project for a friend of mine, and I have a WAMP environment setup for local development. I remember the days when the response from my local Apache 2.2 was immediate. Alas! Now I that got back from a long, long holiday, I find the responses from
localhost painfully slow.
It takes like 5 seconds to get a 300B HTML page served out.
When I look at the task manager, the
httpd processes (2) are using up 0% of the CPU and overall my computer is not under load (0-2% CPU usage).
Why are the responses so slow? Is there any Apache setting that I could tweak to perhaps make its thread run with a higher priority or something? It seems like it's just sleeping for a couple of seconds before it serves out the response.
Any help would be much appreciated.
