    I was recomended using ubuntu use the GUI first and then get used to the command line structure, once your confident with that you could always move over to command line only later on.

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

    Ok got the site running on IIS and its the same

    take a look


    Any more suggestions please?

    Have you tried it on a different server? If you tried it on IIS and apache and got the same results, I'm leaning towards some sort of hardware problem like a dodgey NIC interface or simelar? Maybe drivers for things like the NIC need looking at, they could hold up proceedings if they were handling traffic badly.

    just a thought,

    Mike.

    It must be something to do with your images / css / php processing something that happens the first time you load because the first time it's very slow after that it's fine.

    You apparently have 3 broken images
    Which probably isn't helping.

    There is a report of this problem and some potential fixes here: Joomla! • View topic - Slow loading Joomla 1.5 site
    also here:
    Joomla! • View topic - Long iniital load times for Joomla site

    no i have the IIS install on an a separate workstation, the apache server is still up and running just not connected.

    You apparently have 3 broken images:
    1.
    2.
    3.
    Which probably isn't helping.
    those images are missing out of the original package, i will try altering some code to get them working.

    Thanks for the link will look at them in a minute.

    Cheers

    What spec is the server?
    If its fast on localhost but slow elsewhere then it can be dns issues.

    Well...

    I made a copy of my existing database. I made a new installation then edited the configuration.php file to point at the copy of the original database. Then copied all my images and files to my new installation. Once the site seemed to be running fine i copied it onto the main server and hey presto!
