    Hello

    One of my WordPress installations Tonedango is maxing out my shared server's processes and sending out error 500 messages 1/3 of the time.

    The process that are always going are:
    /usr/bin/php /home/xxxxx/public_html/index.php
    /usr/bin/php /home/xxxxx/public_html/index.php
    /usr/bin/php /home/xxxxx/public_html/index.php

    I have seen several unresolved threads about this has anyone found a culprit for this conditional problem?

  2. How many Multisite blogs have you got and what's your traffic?

    The tl;dr of all things is you probably need a bigger server that you can manage and optimize.

    This installation is operating 7 different websites.
    I have just reconfigured this website and have only begun to experienced this problem today. I don't think I need a larger server yet, my traffic is next to nothing. 14 visitors today 177 pages served.

    I have already tried deactivating the plugins and reverting back the .htaccess (I did a bunch of 301's for a subdomain that I moved to a new website) but that seemed to change nothing. I have other websites on this same server that are not running nearly as many processes but which carry more traffic. I have added Super Cache after this problem started and it did not lower the average processes.

    My guess is there is a more functional state of being for this wordpress installation. Do you have any advice half-elf?

    So... In order to display some of the post content from each blog on the front page of the blog network, I used the RSS widget to gather feeds from the other blogs in the network. I guess this lead to the index file getting pulled 7 times for each load of the home page.

    I am going to try this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/
    to see if I can get it sorted out.

    Oh wow, okay, that's why you're slaughtering your site :) Don't do that! What that does is loop through WP over and over and over to get the info.
