The site is large...17,000 pages or more.

I don't have TotalCounter installed. I have fastcache, spaced and swf-sites2 
in the cookbook folder, but I'm not pointing to spaced in config.php and 
fastcache.php is already commented out. spacewikiwords is in the local 
folder and enabled.

My host went down for about 45 minutes a few days ago. Another recent change 
is that they have recently done away with PHP 4 support, but I was already 
using PHP 5.3.10 (going from memory, but I think that's the correct 
version)...so I don't think that's an issue.

Thanks for the tips. I'll try your suggestions on the config.php file when I 
get home tonight and report back.

Thanks again,
David Bruce Murray
