I'm developing joomla extensions and obviously I have a lot of joomla installations on my localhost. I install a lot of different extensions to test compatibility, etc and I realize the fact that the pages that I have on my localhost are not optimized for speed (no page caching, no db caching, constantly clearing the browser cache...). However I find it really strange that I have to wait between 10-15 secs to get a page. I don't have a state of the art hardware anymore
- running a win7 64bit on core 2 duo 2Ghz, 4Gb ram + Samsung SSD.
I was wondering if you could share some examples from your installations (joomla, magento, wordpress - anything that has a huge library to load - zend project is also fine)? How fast are your localhost applications loading for you? Maybe I just need to upgrade my hardware...
