    Hi David

    Thanks for your help so far. One query, just recently I have been getting the following error messages on a regular basis:

    "CGI Timeout- The specified CGI application exceeded the allowed time for processing. The server has deleted the process."

    The site is hosted a Windows server. I am not sure why this is occurring and therefore how to fix it.

    I have checked the Read/Write properties of the Cache directories and the pages are restricted to displaying 20 items.

    Some ideas and suggestions would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    See FAQ What optimizations can I do to speed up Associate Engine?

    The "CGI Timeout" time is set by your hosting company in the server's configuration; it is not a setting of Associate Engine.

    If the server still does a timeout after you do the optimizations, then either ask your hosting company to increase the timeout time or considering moving to a linux server at your current hosting company or consider moving to a different hosting company.

    I thought I would pass back the response I had from my service provider.

    "In order to ensure server reliability, the timeout on Fasthosts' servers has been set to 10 seconds for CGI scripts, and 15 seconds for ASP scripts."

    I have no idea whether this is normal or not but since I raised the issue with them the problem seems to have suddenlt gone away.

    Best wishes
