I have been using Apache on my PC for awhile, and have had no problems until I bought a new computer preloaded with Vista. Among the many other problems I have had with this awful operating system, the weirdest one is with Apache.
If I simply type http://locahost/ in Firefox, it sometimes takes over a minute to load, and if I actually type in my own webpage to work, it has taken as long as 5 minutes to load. When I was using XP, the page would snap into view as soon as I hit the enter button.
The problem is worse when there is no wireless network around. If the computer has hooked up with a network, it seems to work better.
Any suggestions?
This makes working on my website almost impossible.

Thanks in advance,
Michael Smith

I've got the same problem. Not sure what to try. Everything was great under Xp, but on Vista, pags served up from localhost are SSSLLLLOOOWWWW. Sad I've got Apache 2.4 with PHP 5 and even serving up a basic html page it painfully slow. Everything works, but it is just so slow. Sad

Well, turns out for me, that the problems I was having with speed seem to be related to Coldfusion. I have Coldfusion/Apache2/PHP5 installed and working as I always had on my old Xp system. With my current configuration, when I don't have Coldfusion running (trying to save a little memory unless I actually need it) Apache runs like a dog. This was NOT the case on my old Xp system. As soon as I fire up Coldfusion, everything, Apache, CF, PHP all run great. When I only have Apache running (Coldfusion service stopped) it runs like a dog again. Must be trying to test/check for Coldfusion with this setup. I was running Xp with CF MX/Apache2.2/PHP4 and now I now I'm running CF MX7/Apache 2.4/PHP5. Weird. Must be the combination of things that is doing it.

I don't know if this helps but I was having the same problem as well (though not related to CF). I editted my hosts file and commented out the "::1 localhost" line and that seems to be helping a lot.

Any progress on this problem? I have Apache running locally on Vista.

When I send and HTTP://localhost request from IE7
at exactly 12:54:15 the Apache access.log states: - - [06/Sep/2007:12:54:18 +0200] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 304 - "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506; InfoPath.2)"

It shows that my request was received with 3 seconds delay.
Any ideas where these seconds are spent when working with localhost? Sending requests "outhere" runs instatnly.

I made some tests and fixed the problem putting the computer's name in the HOSTS configuration file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts), like this:

----------------------------------------------- localhost
::1 localhost computername


Ex.: http://computername/phpinfo.php

It also runs fast when you access the server with IP address. Ex.:

I'm running Apache 2.2.8 and Windows Vista (without any Service Pack)
