Search not working (loads forever) (1 post)

    Happy new year everybody!

    New year - new problems :-p
    after the server move to a new wonderful 4GB Quad core server, all the sites, even most of the galleries, load under 1 second. On the old server I thought, it was just the slow server that produced this problem.

    But still -

    the search function on my site doesn't work and I have no idea why. Once you send the form, it calls index.php?s=searchword and loads forever and forever...

    Can you help me on what causes it?

    This is the search page:
    http://johnny-depp.org/jdorg/search/

    the same happens when I put the search widget into the sidebar.

    This is my search.php (the template for the search site)

    <?php /* Template Name: Search*/ ?>
    <?php
    /**
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Default_Theme
     */
    
    get_header(); ?>
    	<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    
    		<h1 class="pagetitle">Search Results</h1>
    
    		<div class="navigation">
    			<div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?></div>
    			<div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?></div>
    		</div>
    
    		<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    
    			<div <?php post_class() ?>>
    				<h2 id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    				<small><?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?></small>
    
    				<p class="postmetadata"><?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?> Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?>  <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?></p>
    			</div>
    
    		<?php endwhile; ?>
    
    		<div class="navigation">
    			<div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?></div>
    			<div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?></div>
    		</div>
    
    	<?php else : ?>
    	<?php endif; ?>
    
    		<h2 class="center"Try a different search?</h2>
    <form id="searchform" method="get" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
    <p><input name="s" type="text" id="s" size="33" maxlength="99" />
    <input type="submit" class="submit" value="Search &raquo;" /></p>
    </form>
    
    <br style="clear:both;margin:10px 0;" />
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    this my searchform.php (although I also removed this file to have the search.php call for the default searchform - same problem)

    ` <form id="searchform" method="get" action="/">
    <div>
    <input type="text" class="alignleft" style="clear:none;" name="s" id="s" size="25" />
    <input type="submit" style="width:auto" value="Search"/><br class="clear" />
    </div>
    </form>`

    what have I done wrong?

    Thank you, Martina.
