I am running XAMPP 1.6.4 and have had no problems for a long time. Yesterday, my PHP/MySQL applications were running just fine. Today, they are running VERY slowly. There is about a 10 to 15 second wait for each record retrieval or update. As far as I know, nothing has changed on my system.
I went back to a backup made about a month ago (a backup of the entire XAMPP folder). It, too, is now running slowly.
The Task Manager shows "Apache.exe *32" running twice. "mysqld.exe *32" is also running.
I use XAMPP for work, and our PHP programs are not compatible with later XAMPP versions, so that is why I am on an earlier one. But, until yesterday, it was running great.
I am on Windows 7 using Internet Explorer.
I would really appreciate any suggestions on how to fix this problem.
