Slow http download. Fast via FTP and module


I have some trouble with speed on my virtual host. apache seem to top at 600kb/s. I don’t know why. When downloading from the server via FTP or vie the webmin file manager module, I can get up to 3.5Mb/s.

I tried to play with the httpd.conf, StartServers, MinSpareServers, MaxSpareServers, ServerLimit, MaxClients and MaxRequestsPerChild but noting change.

Is there somewhere I can look to trouble shoot this issue?

The webmin server run on a VPS. Have 512mb ram but only ~240-260 are used at this time.

Thank you!

Most likely, your host limits the speed on some ports.
Open a ticket with them and ask.

Did you enable mod_qos on your apache?

mod_qos: I didn’t touch anything. apachectl -t -D DUMP_MODULES doesn’t return it.

Host limit: If it was my host, I would also have the problem in the file manager plugin.


Isn’t file manager on https?

I know it is old topic, but try EnableSendFIle off in your domain apache config.
Did wonders for me

Thanks for the info.

After multiple test on different OS and architecture at the same hosting, I decided to switch to a new host. I don’t have the problem anymore,

I’ll keep this in mind if I ever get this problem again !
