I've been using XAMPP on a new Windows 8 machine for about 2 months now but I can't get it to work fast. I have tried numerous tips such as disabling ipv6, using the ip (127.0.0.1) instead of localhost, etc, but nothing speeds up.
The site is a Cakephp site and was working fine on a Mac. Also, I tried to use Wampserver and got the same results. In short, a web page takes about 5 seconds to load.
How can I proceed with debugging this sluggish in more detailed level?
