    Help! I don't know how to diagnose what is causing this. I assume one of my plugins? How should I go about solving this -- disable all plugins? And how can I do this if my website isn't up (therefore can't access WP Admin)?

  2. Wow, they certainly don't give you any useful information. Would you mind listing off your installed plugins? One of them might be a known offender.

    More importantly, who is your host ?

    Thanks for looking at this thread. Macman, I thought the info was useless too, I will ask my host for more, they said they are "investigating."

    Obviously this is a HUGE problem to me and I want to get it fixed this minute (I'm posting this from in-class at school right now).

    My host is Canaca.com. I have been with them for over 1 year and I like them pretty good. Tons of bandwidth, 5 SQL databases with my account, has supported PHP/WP and everything I've wanted to do so far. Also have multiple accounts with them, so don't want to switch unless necessary. However if you recognize anything Canaca does/did wrong please tell. They have never shut down a site of mine before.

    After school I will try to list my plugins for you. The problem is, I can't see my site or my Admin. So I will just have to guess/remember. Do you think it would tend to be the newest plugin(s) I installed? The latest was Viper's "Alphabetical Plugins" list but I really can't imagine that was taxing the PHP too much.

    Only plugin I have suspicion of, is Extended Live Archives. I only bring this up b/c I have noticed on my traffic stats for the last several months that the URL getting the most hits/entries/exits from my site was mysite.com/blah-blah-blah/exendedlivearchives.php (something like that).

    Any of this ring a bell? I need help & feel clueless where to start addressing this. Should I write to my host & what should I ask for?

  5. No, it doesn't have to be one the newest plugins. A poorly-coded plugin can accumulate data and steadily increase load over time.

    From what I can remember, Super Archives has been the cause of some high loads and hosting service evictions before. Since Extended Live Archives is based off of Super Archives, it may be the cause. Have you contacted the plugin's developer?

    Also, did you have any "recent comment" plugins enabled? And, can you access your /wp-content/plugins/ directory, either through FTP or a backup, and list its contents?

    dgold, how did you make out with this? Canaca pulled this trick on me as well. Honestly, I dont think we arent actually doing anything wrong other than using more than they anticipated for total usage.

    I am chasing this, but they wont give me anymore info other than
