This server is configured to overload. Any site that is supposed to handle a heavy load will be configured with PHP running as a module, not a stand-alone program (also known as "CGI"). Running with PHP as a CGI guarantees at least 50% additional overhead for every access (as in each page viewed) over running as a module. Not to mention that, if your account ID is "admin60", they've configured OUT a number of security features...

You may not want to change hosts right now, but start shopping.

Thanks for that piece of knowledge. I am "admin60".

I've got to talk with some of the other guys to see what they want to do with the site...if we do switch hosts, do any of you have any recommendations?
