long php startup times

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)
