Wordpress Permalinks extremely slow on XAMPP web server

I have created a web server with XAMPP for a Wordpress website. All works fine except for the custom permalinks. When the permalinks are set to default (?p=postID) the page loads for 3-4 seconds. However, using custom permalinks takes up to 15 seconds for a page to load!

I think the problem is with my XAMPP configuration, because I had no such problems with my old host.

I have already configured Apache to work with Wordpress permalinks:

Code: Select all
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

Code: Select all
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
AllowOverride All

# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi Guys,
I created a live web server. My website loads very fast when i am using the default Wordpress permalinks (page numbers), however, it takes ages for the pretty permalinks to load (i.e. /%postname%/). Any ideas what I am doing wrong? XAMPP version 1.8.2

I dont think that YOU are doing something wrong. WordPress is really badly coded and the internet is full of threads like this one. Performance problems in every environment due to many many reasons. Sometimes its running well, sometimes its running slowly.

If you can setup a Linux PC, i would give that a try. Many performance problems disappear in a Linux environment, Apache & Co. mostly are running faster and more stable in a Linux environment than on Windows. Otherwise it turns out, that its very hard to find the reason for a slow WordPress installation.
