Yes, that should be fine - we've been running SHARP with > 1500 sites
without any problems.

That's odd - and a new one for us.

Could you cut-n-paste the content of the "Ready for Submit" page into
a text file and send this to us? This way we can check what might be
the problem ...

Also: you could try and increase the variable

  $cgi_lib'maxdata    = 131072;    # maximum bytes to accept via POST - 2^17



(eg doubling it) and see if that helps?
