It's been fine but over the last few months has been getting slower and slower and slower.
Now it takes about 4 minutes to load a page.. that's anything from post > add new in the backend to viewing a page on the front end. It is completely unworkable.
I've tried all sorts, adding this to my hosts file:
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1
commenting it out, i've just uninstalled xampp and installed xampp lite 1.7.7, I've commented out any unused sites from my hhtpd-vhosts.conf file, I've moved all my sites to a backup folder and only kept the current ones, i've turned off my virus checker and firewall (avast), restarted, restarted xampp services etc etc.
Having reinstalled to the latest and litest version and still thigns take 3 minutes to load... what can I do next? I now can't use localhost for wp dev which is not good for me.
