XAMPP / WAMP / apache / php running slow on localhost solution

by on Apr.09, 2013, under Dev, Tech

SOLUTION:
open a command shell as an Administrator
type: netsh
type: interface
type: portproxy
type: add v6tov4 listenport=80 connectport=80

BACKGROUND:
Windows environment is such a complex environment to develop on.
Many things need to be considered if something goes wrong.
Firewall, rogue programs, anti-virus, etc…

Anyway, I’ve been developing in Windows for the past 9 years and only this past year that I encountered slowdown in my localhost which was not present before.
I’ve had this computer since 2008 and hardware configuration has been the same since then except for hard drive upgrade.
I’ve been using the same Windows 7 64-bit installer and settings since then.
The only difference was the upgraded version of the apache server (BitNami) that I’ve been using.

And after going on a leave from developing for a few months I haven’t touch my development environment since.

When I started my local server again, everything was slower than usual.
I thought it was something that I have set from an even earlier development when I was testing the loading of website bandwidth constraint using mod_bw.
I checked the settings. mod_bw wasn’t even installed now.

It was something else.

Now, with a new site to develop, things were reaching the maximum timeout of processing.
I couldn’t continue processing the page.

This wasn’t present on my Macbook Air, this wasn’t present on two of my friend’s netbook, and is not present on the live server.

I though it was the hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts). It’s not.

Then I searched Google there were multiple solutions to the problem but most did not fix mine.

After a few links, I found the solution. (see above)

Samsung Galaxy S now available on Globe for pre-order

by on Jun.16, 2010, under Gadgets, Reviews, Tech

When I was passing by Greenbelt 3 to get to Greenbelt 1, I noticed a “new” Globe hub on the way. It’s beside Powerbooks, in front of b_connected, near Healthy Options, etc..

It’s nothing new, I pass by Globe stores all the time but this one got my attention.

globe greenbelt 3It’s an advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy S!

So I went in. Circled the display looking for the phone. And at the middle there is the beautiful phone. Three of them :)

I picked one and meddled with it.

It’s bigger than the iPhone but a bit lighter and thinner (than 3Gs?).

It’s a shiny piece of black glass. And I mean shiny.

The screen is all black when the screen is off but when it turns on all you can notice is the screen and nothing but the screen!

The screen is AMOLED and it’s very very nice! Everything is crisp and vibrant!

And very captivating as well

But unlike the new iPhone 4, you can still see the pixels upon REAL CLOSE UP!

iPhone 4*, iPhone 3Gs*, Galaxy S

It’s very prone to smudges as you can see from the video and photos.

The Samsung Galaxy S packs the following features:

  • 1GHz Cortex-A8 based processor “Hummingbird” with integrated graphics
  • 4.0″ 16M color SUPER AMOLED screen with multi-touch
  • 3.5mm jack
  • micro usb port
  • 5MPx AF camera with tap-to-focus function and shoot vidoes up to 720p at 30FPS
  • 8GB/16GB on-board memory for your media
  • Accelerometer, proximity sensor, digital compass

As for the software:

  • Android 2.1 Eclair with reports of upgrade to 2.2 FroYo
  • Android Samsung UI (Pantheon maybe?)
  • DivX, XviD, MPEG4, H.236, H.234, WMV, VC-1, 3gp, FLV, MKV
  • Flash Lite 3.1 is also integrated into the browser
  • Live wallpapers
  • Layar
  • Swype
  • ThinkFree office app
  • Aldiko e-book reader

Android Live Wallpaper in action.

There is also a list view of the menu if you wanna go old-school or tired of the panes.

Interesting though, the fonts are different. I wonder if you can change the font or it comes bundled with the skin…

If only the phone was configured with the Android Market and WiFi I would have run some benchmarks nyahahaha~!

I wanted to play more with the phone but I was already fondling it for about 20 minutes. I never cared about the iPad that was in front of me :-p

I wanted to say more about this phone but I had spent only so little time with it.

I’m definitely gonna buy this phone maybe December or on my birthday, March.

I’m still waiting for the price to settle down :)

Unless of course the Droid X will be released here with a better competitive price by that time. I won’t hesitate to buy the Droid X if it’s around 30k, give or take 5k.

And I’m gonna be waiting for this dock.

It’s really drooling! hahaha

As for the price…

I asked the sales lady on when is the availability of the Galaxy S.

She told me it was available since June 3 on pre-order. And the price is: Php 31,000!

She said that you can also avail of this phone at 0% interest on a 12-month payment.

I also asked if when I will get the phone. She said that it’s on “reservation with the source” and you can get the phone in 1-2 weeks.

Now, I don’t know if the price she said was on contract. I hope it isn’t!

I don’t care if it’s locked to Globe. I’m on Globe anyway.

And on December, I hope they bundle the dock with the phone or something.

And that dock! I hope it’s gonna be cheaper than what I’m thinking.

There’s a lot of hoping going on here… hehe’

Anyway, let’s just hope wish for the best.

A lot of Android goodness awaits our future ^^,
