xampp service slow on loading webpage

Posted on 2011-10-11

I have Windows 2008 configured as a domain cotroller and xampp installed. IIS is also running to provide internatl service for database synchronizations.

The problem is I am experiencing VERY SLOW response time on the web service. At first I thougth that our configured DNS NameServers were not resolving quickly. I changed Name Server service 3 times. Then I tried loading the webpage from within the server by typing the server's IP address and I experienced the same lag in response. In general the webpage has a 10 second delay before loading. Once loaded, navigation is normal and fast.

Any ideas?

Could it be DNS configuration? Could it be xampp? Please advice

NOTE: Computer resources are fine and processing power is at 50% when in maximum use.

    Check your permissions: are they Domain based or system based?
    Check your hard drive data transfer rates and use process monitor to view whether you have a constant read or write happening...

    The following may possibly cause the system to become unstable:
    Increase the priority rate of xampp processes in task manager. (under processes tab)

    Permissions are Administrator Domain Based. Hard Drive is transferring well.

    The only lag time is the initial access moment to the web address weather accessing locally on the server or from the internet. Once inside the published page, the links and everything else works perfectly fine and fast.

    As per my view xampp virtual host setting are not proper.
    Please check the httpd.conf file
    virtual hosts are configured as name Based or IP based ..?
    And IIS & Apache web servers are installed means IIS web server using the different port other than 80...right?

    And fro DNS Name server address change from Registrar Site ..?
    did you changed the ns1 & ns2 addresses or only point the www A record to Hosting Server IP address..?

    Can you Please try the  Wamp Server instead of Xampp.
    Wamp server is easy to install & configure.
