    Websites Were Fast Now Slow

    I'm running a webserver using xampp. Suddenly Apache started showing pages extremly slow when it was usually fast. Does apache have a cache or something that will make it run slow after a while. I'm using windows 2000 as well.

    Thanks in advance

    The longer a process is ran the more resources it uses up. Try restarting apache and see if it makes a difference.

    Did this slow down coincide with either of the changes in these threads -

    If so, then one of them caused your slow down.
    If you are learning PHP, developing PHP code, or debugging PHP code, do yourself a favor and check your web server log for errors and/or turn on full PHP error reporting in php.ini or in a .htaccess file to get PHP to help you.

    if you are running a torrent client behind a firewall router...please shut it down...and see if that helps. I came across this problem once whilst fixing a client's computer...and took me ages to figure it out.

    Also, are there a lot of processes running on your machine? that may be eating a lot of resources etc.

    run the following command at the command prompt to see what processes are connecting to your computer or from your computer to the network

    Code:
    netstat -ano > running_processes.txt
    to open the file run the following command
    Code:
    notepad running_processes.txt
    you should now have a file "running_processes.txt" which should contain information about all processes that are listening for internal or external connections.

    I would do a google search on anything that may look suspicious and eliminate those processes etc.
