    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 -

    Eliminate Directory Listings with Apache

    Change table type to MyISAM

    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.
