first-of-all i'm new to SS.

I'm having a problem with the site sometimes not loading. As if the server is responding with a blank page. This happens in the front-end and also in the back-end. This also happens when i'm updating content. Approx 1 out of 4 refreshes works. In the admin, when i'm saving i get an error. After some (2-3) clicks on the Save button, i get a Succesfull message.

From what i guess this could be
1. a htaccess issue
2. a cache issue
3. db issue

I had a fresh install yesterday. This was happening constantly. (no modules or other extras installed)
I then deleted everything and reinstalled, dupmed db, reinstalled (without the statistics checkbox) and the site worked like a charm.

I then put up some modules (blog, forum, gallery and youtubeservices). Run /db/biuld/?flush=1 and went to bed.

This morning the site is showing the same symptoms. ~60% of all requests made to the server don't come back. Or come back empty...

Anyone have any ideea where to look?


just click on the menu links and a balnk page shoul now-and-then appear. when that happens refresh a couple of times.

Could it be a memory limit issue? that would explain why things bailed with extra modules

Physical space could not be a problem.
PHP allocated mamory? Could be... but wouldn't i get some php errors if that was the case?
Also RAM related issus shouldn't be. As i have another 2 db driven sites on the same hosting account and i'm not experiencing problems with those.

I reinstalled everything on a different hosting and it seems to be working fine now... I still don't know what the problem was, but i'm happy as its working now.

Thanks for looking into my problem willr :)
