I have created a web server with XAMPP for a WordPress website. All works fine except for the custom permalinks. When the permalinks are set to default the page loads for 3-4 seconds. However, using custom permalinks takes up to 15 seconds for a page to load!
Is there a way to fix this? I need to use pretty permalinks because the SEO dropped drastically since I am using the default permalinks (?p=postId). Please note that the website has about 40 posts and 10 different categories.
I have already configured Apache to work with WordPress permalinks:
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files. # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords: # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit # AllowOverride All # # Controls who can get stuff from this server. # Order allow,deny Allow from all
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
