When I view a web page hosted on my web server using https in the afternoon, it loads extremely slow. Loading the same page at the same time using http (unsecure), it loads very quickly. In the morning or late at night we have no problems with it.
We are running XAMPP on a Windows 2008 R2 server
- Processor: Intel Xeon CPU E5620 @ 2.40 GHz 2.40 GHz (2 processors)
- Installed memory: 8.00 GB
- 64 bit OS
When we notice slowness on the website I have remoted into the server (RDP connection) and looked at performance monitor in Task Manager but I don't see anything maxing out. What could be the cause of slowness? We really need to use https for this application. If I could switch it to http, we wouldn't have this problem but that's not an option.
