If we were to change the permissions and allow the home server to write to the xml files, will that work? I did try this last week before reading this thread. I have a simple box with CentOS 5.1 installed, I changed all the values to the ones on the "real" server. LOL..After 200 hours, I had to stop it. Problem that I have is that I got a video script in a subfolder that pulls the videos from youtube. This seems to be causes the lengthy process. Also one difference I saw, as the home server crawled the main site, I saw the process in the window. But no process seen if I run the script on the main site.
