    As DMcCoy has posted above, if it's fast browsing it on the server, then it's almost definitely not PHP and probably not apache holding things up. If it's also the same speed when you browse it from within the same LAN, then I think you can illiminate the server causing your problems all together.

    You then need to look at the next link in the chain. Where does it go next when you view it from outside? If it's an ISA box or simelar then this would be my next port of call to troubleshoot this problem.

    We have bypassed all that kind of stuff and it gives the same result

    According to firebug you have a fair few images that are called for but do not exist, this could be slowing it down:

    x.co.uk/templates/eg_brown/images/headerkuva
    x.co.uk/images/stories/smoothgallery/thumbs/tn_history1.jpg
    x.co.uk/images/stories/smoothgallery/thumbs/tn_gerrard.jpg
    x.uk/images/stories/smoothgallery/thumbs/tn_football.jpg
    x.co.uk/images/stories/smoothgallery/thumbs/tn_newart.jpg
    x.co.uk/images/stories/smoothgallery/thumbs/tn_ict1.jpg
    x.co.uk/images/stories/smoothgallery/thumbs/tn_history%202.jpg
    x.co.uk/templates/eg_brown/images/top_bg.png
    x.co.uk/templates/eg_brown/images/footerpalkki.gif

    Other than that it appears to load quite quickly.

    I don’t think it is that when I remove the images it’s the same slow speed. Also when you access a page with little on it directly for example URL Removed it’s still slow. When you navigate to the same page from the home page its nice and fast.

    Also if you go to URL Removed then to the home page its fast.

    Do you get what i mean?

    HTML seems fine but the PHP site is slow

    As its slow to initially load, but is then quick I would look at how your PHP sessions are handled. I think joomla uses sessions which are valid for a short while, which is why the first page you visit is slow (it could be trying to create the session and failing?) then loading subsequent pages is fast.

    Does that sound plausable to anyone who understands sessions a bit more than me??

    Are files being create in this path:

    session.save_path = "C:\xampp\tmp"


    With random looking names? The user running apache needs write permissions to this folder.

    Clone the partition to create a backup.
    Format, reinstall & service pack.
    Create another installation and ensure this is not a corrupt installation.
    You could go round in circles and still not get anywhere.

    The basic problem is that you are using Windows are your platform. While I don't deny it works, apache generates a lot of context switches. This totally destroys performance. You have a couple of ways of avoiding this however.

    1) Change your webserver software. Basically use IIS.
    2) Change your OS to one that handles Apache better. Basically use a *nix OS.

    If your going to do Option 1 that geoff suggests, move it to IIS, we run our Joomla site on IIS and its quick and runs like a dream.

    Can link to a video tutorial if you want to get PHP working with IIS too.

    Thanks
