[pmwiki-users] Large ammount of articles... about 50k

You might consider using the SQLite recipe: http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/SQLite

It's a pretty simple change to make, and should be transparent to users of the wiki. I believe it can coexist with flat files as a separate page store. The caveats, as I recall: it only creates new pages in the database (existing pages are imported as they are changed). Also, I'm not sure how you would export from the SQLite database to flat files, if you ever want to go back. That can probably be done via a loop of PHP code.

If you find 250k articles is too slow even with SQLite, in theory a recipe could be written for SQL or another database. The ability to handle huge numbers of page would be a nice addition to PmWiki.

Do report back on your experience.
