I believe as long as the data is not complicated, you can do it with plain text files. Has to be done intelligently though using directories, subdirectories and at times certain values in text files. Depending on how complex the database is and how complex the site itself is, I think it's achievable. But may or may not be advisable.

to hack around at a bandaid solution.
It isn't that my host is so unreliable, all servers eventually have problems. I'm looking for a solution that will resolve such issues when the host server has a problem, regardless if they are supposed to be dependable or not.
I would just like to be able to have the freedom to host a site without the dependence on server resources accept for delivery of content.
In this way, I could use a server that does not support databases or server side scripting and everything would still work.
