PHP / mysql slow on IIS

Hi, we have reprogram our site with PHP / MYSQL.  We are hosting our site on IIS 7.5 on windows Server 2008 STD R2.  They have used PHP and MYSQL.  IP6 is disable on the network Interface.  We have a 10mb fiber link.  When someone is going to the site, it takes about 5-10 second to respond.  Any idea what that problem can be?

It could be any number of things.  Check the server logs and see if there are any clues there.

You might want to install this free and open source toolset:

Firefox Browser
Firebug Plug-in
YSlow Plug-in

Those can give you some pretty good clues.  But if a simple script takes 5-10 seconds, the server may be involved in error recovery.  Have you tried a simple "hello world" script?  How long would it take to run this script:

<?php phpinfo();

Another thing that I have notice is when I'm going to my site
http://www.mysite.com it takes about 10 second and then, the adress is changing to http://www.mysite.com/eng and then, the site is loading

I hope this help!
Thanks!

What is the actual URL of the site.  We might be able to help better if we could look at it and see it in action.

The changing URL should be explained by rewrite rules or header() redirects or meta refresh tags.  Which one is it?  Or are there a combination of those in play?

Looks like the site is built with CakePHP
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cakephp

With general-purpose web application frameworks you often get a lot of "extra" programming and files.  With the phpinfo() script the response was essentially instantaneous, clearly sub-second.

The phenomenon you mentioned about seeing the site redirect to a page named /eng may be some kind of Cake-related internationalization that is choosing English language.  Unquestionably that is part of the overhead that is making things slower than they need to be.

There are a lot of moving pictures.  They look great but they take time to load and run.  It's a tradeoff -- beauty vs performance.

Firebug reported these.  The speed of the 404 handler might be in play, and in any case it is worth correcting a "not found" condition.

Using Firefox, Firebug and Yslow here is what I see...
