Live blogging plugin crashing apache? (3 posts)

    Hey Chris,

    First of all, amazing plugin! I installed it on a fresh copy of wordpress installed on a folder on my webspace and it worked like a charm.

    I do however have another blog that welcomes between 45,000 and 50,000 visits a day. This blog is running on a shared hosting package, and the moment I activated the live blogging plugin my blog stopped working and my hosts informed me that the admin-ajax.php file in WordPress was causing serious server load.

    I really wanted to implement Live blogging to better my users' experience so I decided to upgrade my package. Just in time a friend offered me a dedicated server to run my blog off, and when I installed wordpress and migrated the database over and activated the live blogging plugin, it crashed apache on that server too (which is a pretty strong server)

    I'm just wondering if you could give me a bit of help here mate. I've gone into the live-blogging.js file and increased the call from every 15 seconds to every minute but that still doesn't stop apache from crashing.

    Please advise as I'm feeling completely lost. I've had a considerable amount of downtime and I'd love to get the site back up and running, preferably with your plugin supporting at the forefront

    Thank you

    If you use Meteor, there'll be no load on Apache at all. The FAQ has some more details.

    Basically, you need to set up a Meteor server, configure the live blogging plugin to connect to it, and then you'll be all sorted.

    I had the same issue -- too much traffic, brought down entire server. Shame.
