I’m running drupal on a server at home, but it can be really slow. From a cold start, it will take anything between 1 and 10 seconds to serve a page.
AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.00 Ghz (I think its about 5 years old)
Lots of hard drive space
SBS 2011 (on 2008R2 stack with IIS7.5)
PHP 7 NTS 64 bit
(all pretty much fully patched and latest versions)
I’ve followed a number of different suggestions, such as boost, wincache, css compression, tweaking this and that .ini parameter.
1. Is my hardware too old and I would benefit significantly from newer faster hardware, or is my problem more configuration based?
2. Is there a simple PHP webpage I can install on my server that would run simple checks for performance and tell me what is wrong without needing the ability to interpret detailed log files?
3. Anything else?
