Collected a long time ago a bunch of WAMP. PHP 5.2.8. Especially did not pay attention all this time, because visually not felt, but if relatively one store script on a cheap hosting works almost 10 times faster. I also have a very hard drupal. Although my car seems to be not weak and there are no competing programs. If anyone knows how to increase the speed of php on windows, tell me pliz. What settings can.
Most likely, an op-code cache is on the hosting, but not on a Windows machine. I think so. eaccelerator apc, etc.
