I had an OS reinstall after which if i try to fetch a file using fopen, fread functions its very slow..
Prev the file used to get transferred on my server within sec but now its taking hell lot of time..
I have tried downloading from different servers but the same prob..
What can be the possible reasons for it..
May be you miss configuration or some unusual daemon is creating problem or if your application is updated might be its creating some conflict, will you please tell us what operating system you were and you are using now.
If after the OS reinstall the account got assigned a new IP address, there is a possibility that it does not have a PTR record. Remote connections can slow down while attempting to establish a connection to a domain with a missing PTR record. That is if you are issuing the fopen command to an external host.
