I noticed SS3 is slow on my local development with MAMP, especially when I run ?flush=1 or dev/build, this takes long before I get the result. this was not the case with 2.4 versions of SS.

Anyone had this issue?

Hi sajok,

Have you tried enabling xcache? It made things much faster for me. Also editing the php ini for more memory might also help (not sure what the default memory limit in MAMP is). You can add the php ini directives to the htaccess file and it should work.

MAMP wasn't too bad for me though I had increased PHP memory limit by quite a lot. However, switching to the native Apache server and installing PHP/ MySQL is a lot quicker, in my experience at least.
