I would like to know or count how many pages there are in a database driven site? How would I go about counting them? Searching search engines index count isn't accurate if the pages don't get indexed.

Since nobody knows the answer, I did a lot of digging this week. Not a programmer, a server admin, google enterprise, and 2 forums knew.

However the answer is quite simple and I want to share it. Download a site map xml generator. Or any sitemap generator. I downloaded one to my pc, rather than to a server. It takes several hours to spider a website with 10,000 pages, but well worth it if you didn't know how many pages you have. The sitemap generator I used had a statistics tab that allowed you to view a page count, and any broken internal links as well as the exact page they are located on to edit them. I suppose the handy thing about a sitemap generator is that it helps SE's keep tabs on your website.

A free tool like Xenu's Link Sleuth would do the job as well.
