    Moodle Homepage Slow to Load

    I have just installed moodle and transferred for the testing of bring moodle in house.

    It seems though that the homepage and login pages are slow to load. but once into the courses they are really fast.

    Link here is my development site its taking around 7/8 seconds to load whereas my LEA hosted site takes around 3/4 seconds link

    any Ideas as to the cause? its exactly the same site. Mine is hosted on a DL380 G5 with Quad Core Xeon and 6gb ram. Running on a 10mb down/9mb up line. and at this time of day nothing else will be running on the machine.

    What system?
    are you running a php cache ? try this PECL :: Package :: APC
    for win: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_APC_in_Windows

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install php-apc
    might help?
    I'm not sure it would explain why the site is fast after logging in...

    Cool. Thanks. It also might be worth running mysqlcheck (I don't recall the switches) to optimize the database, ESP if its imported from a large site.

    Yeah I was working through the different things. I've done the AD intergration/slowness will look at the optimization soon.

    Do you know a simple way to assign the system roles to AD groups? As I can't seem to find much apart from one post here.

    It says you need to edit those files but doesn't say what needs editing/adding!

    Our roles are assigned via Sims. Might be worth starting a new thread..

    One of our ex employees wrote an integration (PENFOLD_99). It hinges on Sims UPN's being imported to AD.
    He now maintains the zilink paid module.

    Having thought I had fixed this last week by installing a php cache it still appears to load slowly - around 7/8 seconds. Also it seems to be that login takes too long.

    Not sure as to why though? any further ideas?

    run 'top' on the command line as you click the link - you'll get a list of processes and may be able to work out what is grinding ( mysqld or httpd )

    neither! the most resource intensive app on the server is top! apache pops up but for a spilt second - although moodle is not the only site on this its everybody's homepage aswell.

    Although this error is popping up in the apache log which i have just noticed

    [Mon Feb 14 15:56:57 2011] [error] [client 192.168.112.12] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /var/www/moodle/theme/Clouds/, referer: The Weald School's Virtual Learning Environment
