Just moved to DH and found a slowness problem. Every php include() which opens a URL (to its own server) makes the page load extremely slowly. I didn't seem to experience this issue with my previous host.
Speed is great when include()ing through the local file system. The reason I'm using URL is because I need to pass arguments into the script (e.g. a counter perl script) which gets the input from the URL query string.
include('counter.pl?id=3'); --> doesn't work, of course
include('http://mywebsite.com/counter.pl?id=3'); --> works but extremely slow
Any tips on improving the speed?
