Recently I installed MediaWiki to my xampp install (My main installation is on my C drive with the htdocs located on an external HDD running on a USB 2.0 port), and I seem to have hit a performance bottleneck, and I have no idea how to clear it.
I can access the installation easily, but any page other than Main_Page or Special:Upload, takes ages (1min+) to load.
I have OpCache enabled and Memcached enabled/configured also, I've even followed the Perfomance tuning steps on mediawiki as well as followed the stops by Aaron Schulz (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Aaron_Schulz/How_to_make_MediaWiki_fast)
I can give my installation specs if it helps.
MediaWiki Version 1.26.2
MySQL : Server version: 126.96.36.199
PHP 5.6.11 (Timeout set to 60seconds, memory increased to 128M and Error_reporting set to E_NOTICE & E_STRICT)
-- Specs End --
My Physical computer specs: Intel i5-520M, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 250GB Samsung Evo 850 SSD (Main-xampp install), 500GB WD Scorpio Blue HDD (for htdocs folder)
Any help is appreciated.
