I recently installed PHP on my local machine and I've been noticing that it's running quite slow. The response times for my web applications are really long, and it's becoming quite frustrating.
I'm not really sure what could be causing this slow performance, so I'm hoping some of you experienced PHP developers could help me out. Are there any steps or techniques I can use to investigate and optimize the performance of my PHP installation?
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance for your help.
