Localhost on XAMPP works very slowly

Postby leramagenta » 14. May 2014 12:37

I stated to work on a computer with Windows 8.1 recently. I have 1.8.3-4 XAMPP version. And the localhost on XAMPP works very slowly. I've got a several websites (Drupal 7 on hostmonster.com). I made a backup and tried to install them on localhost.

I was trying to import a database 686kb but during one hour it was not imported. I tried to import it in hostmonster hosting. It took around 30 sec to make it.

I can install completely fresh Drupal 7 but it takes much more time than usually. But I cannot repeat making the website from the beginning. It took me really much time to make it. And I need to recover it from existing database on my local computer. I have quite slow internet connection right now and I need to work with it from my computer.

I checked at forums

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8432601/wamp-xampp-localhost-responding-very-slow
http://serverfault.com/questions/66347/why-is-the-response-on-localhost-so-slow

And saw that this is a common problem.

I did everything that recommends this article
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8432601/wamp-xampp-localhost-responding-very-slow

Though it did not help me.

Is it possible to make Localhost on Xampp work not so slowly?

I think the reason is the default database engine INNODB for MySQL. Change this to MyISAM (would be best to do that on a fresh Xampp Install) and then import Drupal Database.
