comment Split VMWare's Hard Drive
No, I think it now needs to reside on a FAT32 drive -- so he can't expand it on a FAT32 partition because it can't handle files this large.

comment How can I find exactly which PHP scripts are taking up all server resources?
You're right, it doesn't show you the time a PHP script takes to finish, but it does have a column for how long each thread/child has been working on sending reply (The Req column) as well as what CPU percentage each thread is using. So it's a quick way to get some data, but not a total picture. Your answer sounds more thorough.

comment Why is this mod_rewrite RewriteRule directive not working in the .htaccess file?
Hm. Well without seeing all of httpd.conf I'm not sure what's rewriting the requests to /category.php/$1 but I'm glad it's working now! I suspect that something sees a PHP script with that basename and rewrites. (That's why I suspected FastCGI PHP). Do the same rewrite change for /view and /order and you should be set.

Something is rewriting requests for /category/(.*) to /category.php/$1... Do you use FastCGI PHP?

It should be working as you originally expected, although the [R] flag not taking effect is unusual. Can you enable the rewrite debug log?

$_GET isn't an environment variable -- it's a superglobal containing the result of query strings. What he's trying to do should work.
