I'm having this strange problem on my c1.medium EC2 instance where Apache serves static files very well (as per tail -f access_log).

But, the php files don't open after a few initial requests, which are successfully fulfilled.

There are enough server resources for apache to run properly. I'm feebly experienced with Apache configuration and this is a strange problem.

  • Had nothing in it. Already checked. – kapeels Oct 13 '11 at 11:00

Is it all php files? If you create a very small PHP file (i.e. "hello world" type), does it slow down too?


  • I ran a phpinfo() and it worked. Surprisingly! – kapeels Oct 13 '11 at 11:22
