Page taking along time to load in Firefox

    Hi Guys
    I have succesfully installed and configured my server using your guides/fedora core 6 & ispconfig. Everythings up and running serving up web pages. When using Firefox I have one particular page that takes a long time to finish loading.

    This page contains some php/mysql for a user log in script. This is the only thing that makes it different from the other pages which all load up fine. Also exactly the same page is hosted by a hosting company with no problems at all loading up in any browser from there servers, which are fedora linux. My thoughts are that it must be something in the set up of my server so i was hoping someone might be able to give me a clue?

    I have compared php.ini files from the hosting company and my server and set them to the same values, but that has not cured it yet.

    Many thanks in advance

    Does it also happen with other browsers?

    Any errors in Apache's error log?

    Is it maybe a DNS problem (domain name pointing to the hosting company's server instead of yours)?

    Hi Falko
    Thanks for your reply

    It seems to be a problem with Firefox & Netscape only. It is all fine in IE6.
    My server DNS is not pointing to my hosting company in any way , i have just put the same site on my local server to see how it performs as a comparison.

    I am sorry for being such a nube, but where is the apache log file on a fedora 6 & ispconfig set up.

    I found the apache error log file.

    I seem to have this error repeating allot

    [error] an unknown filter was not added: PHP

    that sounds like a clue...?

    Have a look here

    However, this is not your problem (I think).

    Hi edge

    I have made those changes in ispconfig but like you said, it is not the cause of my problem. So I am still struggling with it...

    So I guess this is caused by some Firefox plugins. Can you disable them one by one and test again?

    Is it only on your system that it's slow, or also with other "Firefox" users?

    Hi Guys
    I have had a few people try to connect to this page on my local server over the weekend and it seems that they are having the same issue using Firefox 1.5.xx. The problem is not there in Firefox 2! The problem still exists in Netscape.

    The bit that I find strange is that the same page loads ok from the remote hosting companies servers (Haisoft) in any browser and any version.

    This is what lead me to believe it was a configuration setting on my local server.

    Very strange!

    And there are no more errors in Apache's error log?

    Hi Falko
    Everything seems fine in the apache error log.
    Can you confirm the path to the error log, just in case i am looking at the wrong file.

    This still sounds like a DNS problem to me.

    Normally it's in /var/log/httpd, /var/log/apache, /var/log/apache2, ...

    Hi Falko
    There are no more errors in the apache log for sure.
    I have just updated Netscape to the latest version and the problem does not exist any more either. So thats the main 3 browsers working ok now.
    Everything seems to be fine with regards to DNS but I am no expert.

    May be it was just time to update the browsers?
    Thanks for your help again.
