Setting up Xampp for speed

You are here


At times using Xammp on a Windows machine you need to find ways for Xammp to work faster. The easiest way is to change the speed of your PHP memory. To do this do the following,

  • Find your php.ini on Windows it will more than likely be (  C:\xampp\apache\bin\php.ini ).
  • Open the file using notepad 
  • Find the line that says memory_limit = 32M.
  • Change it to anything you like, I make it 256M so that frame works like Drupal and CiviCrm can be tested on it.
  • Save the file
  • Restart Xammp
  • Now you have a faster Xammp installation

Please note that you don't add too much to the memory_limit as this will affect your computers performance. I hope this works and makes your web development a more enjoyable process.
