My server takes forever to change maps! What's going on?

Half-Life:
There are a few possibilities here. First, your statsme log may have gotten too large, and it takes the statsme plugin a very long time to load it; I recommend you try shutting down your server, then deleting addons/statsme/statsme.log. Second, you may have other admin mod or metamod plugins that cause the mapchanges to be slow (the AMX plugin "csstats" is well-known to cause this, for instance); try disabling plugins to see if that will help. Third, your map files may have lost the hardlink to their source files on the server; you can ask us to run our repair script in this case.

Source:
Try deleting the .lst files in the downloadlist directory of your FTP. Disable any custom plugins for basic troubleshooting testing to see if the problem persists.
