I am having some speed issues that I would like help with if possible. We have just moved our VLE internally so hosting it ourselves is relatively new. Please be patient with me
We have a server which serves Moodle 1.7.2+. It is a Windows Server 2003 machine with IIS6, PHP 5.2.3 & MySQL 5.0.37. We have 2GB of RAM installed and I'm not sure of the processor, although I think it is dual core (can't be certain though)
Basically the main problem we are having is the home page loads very slowly. The header section loads fine but then it takes about 5-10 seconds for the rest of the page to load. I have read a lot of forum posts on this but most of them mention RSS feeds, which we don't use. I have checked the settings and RSS is disabled.
Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?
There is also a general slowness of the site aswell. It could be linked to the home page but again I don't know what could be causing it.
