I am trying to install the Bitnami DreamFactory 1.7.6-0 stack locally on Windows (tried 7 and 8 so far) but Apache response times get unacceptably slow, I mean 30 seconds slow. I’ve googled around and found that there’s a bug concerning the hosts file (StackOverflow on the subject), but the trick didn’t work for me. When the browser sends a request, it gets “Pending” and “waiting” during most of the delay.
I actually think this problem is with the Bitnami stack, since I’ve got an ordinary Apache install working as expected, and the problem is just with the Bitnami’s Apache.
I have also tried disabling logging as suggested on this forum thread.
Are there any other way to deploy DreamFactory locally on Windows apart from the Bitnami installer? I would definitely give it a try.
