Thanks for the link. But I think I wasn't very clear on that comment. I reread it and see that now.
The reference was just a reminder (to myself) that in the past there was something that I had to deselect to improve performance on a totally unrelated project. So I was thinking that maybe there were other settings, like that one, that I needed to optimize for faster work within php and WA projects.
Hope that makes sense. But if you think of anything else, I would love to try it out. My 4 new gigs of RAM are on order. That might be my problem.
Having said all that. Reading the article you referred me to, did bring up a possible area of concern. Maybe I don't have my site settings correct for both local, remote and testing server.
Would anyone care to share their settings on a Mac for a site? In generic form of course.
My Mac OS X Leopard is running on HDD1 and so is my DW application. My web site files are in a folder on my desktop called "WebSites".
My testing server is local and in HDD1/Applications/MAMP
Scenario 1 - DynamicSite1 settings...
Site Name: DynamicSite1
Local root folder: HDD1:Users:MyName:Desktop:WebSites:DynamicSite1:
Default images folder: Users:MyName:Desktop:WebSites:DynamicSite1:images:
Links relative to: Document
HTTP address: http://localhost:8888/DynamicSite1/
Server Model: PHP MySQL
Testing server folder: HDD1:Applications:MAMP:htdocs:DynamicSite1:
URL Prfix: http://localhost:8888/DynamicSite1/
I have a couple other test projects setup with the remote server and testing server setup remotely. Performance doesn't seem to improve either way.
