Site crashes all the time (3 posts)

    I am running the latest WP and have a Woothemes ecommerce theme installed. My hosting is VPS via Hostgator.

    I have had problems or ages with the site crashing. Hostgator increased my PHP memory to 512 and that helped, but the site still crashes a few times each day.

    The error only occurs when I link to the site using my Facebook and Twitter accounts. I use the Hootsuite Firefox plug-in on my browser to share the links to my social account, as soon as I do this the site runes really slow for about a minute and sometimes crashes altogether. The Hootsuite app is installed on my Mac browser and is not installed on the site or anything, so I don't understand why this happens?

    Hostgator can't really help, so I was wondering if anyone else knows what is causing it.

    Here are the installed plugins
    WooCommerce
    W3 Total Cache
    Akismet

    Thanks in advance
    Darren

    Does the site crash when using a different browser or without that plugin?

    Also try deactivating all your plugins and resetting the plugins folder (in case any are not fully "off").

    If that still does not work, try switching to the default theme.

    Try different browsers. Also, clean your web cache. BTW, Is there any other details of "crashing". What do you see when It crashes?
