New space, same old stuff

To follow up on my post: Changing a domain overnight, it’s been a week of ups and downs for sure. Monday, I kept getting a 500 server error on the Thinking Stick at it’s old home. jeff.scofer.com/thinkingstick/ and actually I’m still getting it and can’t figure out what I did. I contacted my host support and received this reply. Hello Jeff, Your site has caused high server load this morning. This forced oursystem administrators to restore the default memory limits for youraccount in order to secure the server’s health. As a result these 500server errors started occurring. Please note that by default the resource usage of each account on ourservers is limited. On shared-hosting environment there are specificlimits that are imposed on every account. The default memory limit is65MB. A month ago your memory limit was raised to 95MB, which was anexception.

I’m not real good with php and databases so all my tags are gone at the moment and I can’t seem to get them back. Help! I’ve tried everything I can think of at the old site to try and get the processes down. I’ve upgraded the site to WP 2.0.5 thinking that might help. I’ve deactivated all the plugins, but that’s about it. Even when I’m logged into the admin side I get the 500 server error, so I’m limited in what I can do. So my questions, if you can help are:1) What can I do to get the processes down on the site enough to at least navigate it? (I haven’t change scripts in months)2) Is there a way to forward links that link to the old site to the new site? Or do I...
