Wondering if anyone else is seeing this. I'm normally used to FreeBSD not Ubuntu (13.04) so I'm not even sure if this is normal Even when running a static .html file with php it normally takes 20 ms to do- root@lb01:xxx# time php ok.html OK real 0m0.022s user 0m0.008s sys 0m0.012s root@lb01:xxx# time php ok.html OK real 0m0.020s user 0m0.012s sys 0m0.004s Using real PHP files are even worse. This is on a 512 MB droplet. On my FreeBSD machine (dedicated) it works as expected- root@lb1:xxx # time php ok.html OK0.023u 0.005s 0:00.02 100.0% 8470+7210k 0+0io 0pf+0w root@lb1:xxx # time php ok.html OK0.028u 0.007s 0:00.03 66.6% 8470+7210k 0+0io 0pf+0w The BSD box has a lot more extensions loaded than the Ubuntu one but it does have the same ones Ubuntu does have loaded. That is- pdo, apc, gd, memcache, mysql, mysqli, pdo_mysql, xdebug, mongo. When I remove all extensions it doesn't make a huge difference. As well I don't believe it's related to the disk. I tested it and it was OK. My FreeBSD box uses normal HDDs. Is this just a difference that should be normal? P.S. PHP versions: Ubuntu 5.4.6-1ubuntu1.2 FreeBSD: 5.4.10 (built from ports Apr 22)
