Really slow on Windows 11

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I have recently switched from Mac to Windows. I exported all my sites from Mac, and then imported on Windows. Everything seemed to be working fine, other than the speed of the sites. They were loading instantly on Mac, but on windows they can take anywhere between 4-8 seconds to load. The websites is really simple, and only have two plugins enabled. My PC hardware is top spec so that isn’t an issue.

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Not too sure since this seems to be device specific.

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @devN

Have you reviewed our performance guide below? Specifically, the Windows items mentioned?

You need to manually edit file php.ini.hbs in your conf/php website dir. Remove everything related to xdebug. Restart website and it will fly.
