    Apart from the obvious of defraging the drive, have you tried enabling compression within joomla ?

    From Admin Page, goto Site, Global configuration,server

    From here you can enable the GZIP Page Compression, this made a difference on the site I maintain. On the system tab you can also enable the cache, since as default I think its disabled.

    To be honest, its loading ok for me. But at this time I suspect its running at its best.

    The server is a brand new install, only did it yesterday.

    I will try that tomorrow but now I’m off to bed, thanks.

    It's a very bizzare type of slow loading because it takes ages thinking then all of a sudden loads. Have you checked you haven't got a DNS/firewall issue or something of that nature?

    These tips: Performance - MoodleDocs are in relation to moodle but a lot of them can be applied to a generic lamp or wamp stack.

    Cheers

    HTML documents seem to load quickly, so im not sure it is something of that nature.

    Is it a windows server using a WAMP package, or a linux server?

    Hummmm That is probably the casue of the slowness. I found Apache2Triad to be rather slow when access from outside of the network. Try a different package or better yet setup a linux webserver.

    Another school up the road (also a member of this forum) has used apache2triad for a while without slowness.

    What package for windows do you recommend?

    I think the best of the packages as sysman says is xampp but I would strongly recommend for a production site that you install mysql, apache and php from scratch yourself.
