Something (dunno what, perhaps GIT which I just upgraded) is causing my connection to loalhost to work veeeery slowly.
Using WinXP Pro.
I was thinking to upgrade Apache, but could not figure out how to upgrade. The installer warns me that I should first uninstall the existing server, which I don't want to do.
If I ignore that warning, will it overwrite my htdocs folder? My .conf settings? The connection to PHP / MySQL?
Is there some easy way to do this? Command line is OK, but be descriptive please; assume that I am a noob.
Is there a different way to see what is interfering with Apache?
EDIT - A better description:
There are no obvious extraneous or heavy processes running [checked using Sysinternals Process Explorer]
The server/PHP/MySQL all seem to be running fine - OffByOne is able to immediately retrieve a correctly generated page (it just can't render it, being OffByOne).
The other browsers [IE/FF/Webkits] have no problem with short pages [under 5 lines], even with server requests included. Generated pages such as phpinfo() also display fine.
But longer pages [25 lines] - even of plain static HTML - take 15 minutes or more to load in the regular browsers.
It was my hope that some default path or something was overwritten, and that the upgrade would re-overwrite it back to how it was. Not professional, but the closest I could think to rebooting for such an issue.
