That link dosen't say how to fix it. It just says you can tweak something in those two files.
I am fully aware of what I wrote in that post but what is not clear is a reader's level of understanding of what was written.
XAMPP settings have been made for the development environment on low memory and resources machines not for a production server and so tweaking for performance is entirely carried out by the end user and is not easily explained as there are many factors that could effect performance.
First try turning on
these settings in your httpd.conf file and see if the performance improves and if not then simply return to the default off
Save the file and restart Apache after making any edits and backup the file first.
- Code: Select all
# EnableMMAP and EnableSendfile: On systems that support it,
# memory-mapping or the sendfile syscall is used to deliver
# files. This usually improves server performance, but must
# be turned off when serving from networked-mounted
# filesystems or if support for these functions is otherwise
# broken on your system.
Performance tweaking is dependent on not just a general "slow" issue but more on a specific issue of, for example, not enough allocated memory or not enough buffers or cache size etc. etc. etc.
You may have a database(s) that needs attention and often slows things down if there are any data errors etc., but which may not cause an error message, which may be found by using phpMyAdmin table features - Check, Optimize, Analyze and Repair tables for example.
So as I always say open those files and read the comments next to the possible tweaks entries
and experiment - but always make a backup/Copy of any files you are editing so you always have the original to fall revert to.
Save the file after editing and restart Apache to test your tweaks
There is little point in saying 1.do this 2.do that unless the specific reasons are known or they could be guesses which may of course cause other unrelated issue perhaps and then this topic could go on and on until it requires it's own forum.
This forum search for slow
may help you understand that this issue has been around for a long time.
And this topic and a reply by my partner and PPA Sharley has some further links to explore:viewtopic.php?f=16&t=32019&hilit=slow
And of course a Google for slow server performance or slow Joomla may have favorable results.
