[nycphp-talk] XML files

Well normally its suffice to say that if you have even > 1000 XML files that
you shouldn't even be using XML @ all ... if you need to query out an XML to
someone (say a client or web service client) then you'd build a layer
between a database and the client to format the results to XML and use the
same tool to suck in the data.

Client/XML <-> [My PHP Layer] <-> Database

Do you know if your current method is sucking up all the XML into
DOM/Memory?  This would cause the box to crawl to a halt.
