Today I went to add a new page and the nothing happened, it just kept trying to load until the server timed out. After further investigation it turns out that my site caused a high cpu usage and crashed the server (shared server). This happened awhile back and I thought it was because of a plugin I had installed. I removed plugin in question and no problems since. Then I was paranoid to install and other plugins so we have been focusing on adding posts and pages only. One thing I have noticed that always seemed odd to me. Posts always save quickly, pages on the other hand seem to take forever to save. It even takes a long time for a new page to open?? I've reviewed a number of posts about high cpu usage, but they didn't seem to relate to this set of circumstances. Now my site is down and my hosting company (ewdhosting) is threatening to disable my account if I don't get this problem fixed.
Any insights that could help me resolve this would be greatly appreciated!
