So in the last couple of days PHP's performance on our site has just died and we are not sure what is causing it. We have around 1-2k simultaneous users on at a time. So I made an empty test.php file that I put on the site and tried to load it. It took 9.6 seconds to load. I then tried the same thing with a test.html file and it took 43ms to load.
Both files were empty.
Our site does connect to a local MySQL database, but in those tests it did not as the files were empty.
We also run a few other sites off of the same PHP version on the same server with IIS 8.5 with no problems what so ever. So I am stumped on what could be causing this performance drain on this specific site.
I suspect it's something to do with the php.ini file but I'm not sure what. We are running PHP 7.0.7.
Does anyone have any suggestion oh now I can find out what the problem is and how I can overcome it?
