[pmwiki-users] Recent edits page not loading

Ok, so I was setting it in the right place then. Apparently even setting it as low as 5 doesn't fix the problem. I also edited the Site.AllRecentChanges file by hand (noticing that the text=* line had over 228,000 characters on it) to make it smaller, but the page still isn't loading. Is there another piece I'm missing?

Oops, tpo, I meant local/config.php
Sorry about that.

I've tried setting it in local/config.php and even inside the PostRecentChanges function in pmwiki.php, but it doesn't alleviate the problem, so I assume I'm just not doing it right. I tried editing it, but that requires the admin password which, of course, no one has given me yet. Talking with some other people, I realize that the last guy apparently got frustrated with the recent edits page and set a maximum execution time on it of 30 seconds. Obviously you'd hope that the execution time is always way less than 30 seconds, but I imagine that's not helping the situation.
