Support » Theme: BoldR Lite » 90% CPU usage on index.php

  • Resolved onlanka


    I’ m getting high CPU usage (80% – 90%) in my linux VPS due to boldr-lite theme.

    I traced the process and found /public_html/index.php (wordpress home) cause of this high CPU load.

    I didn’t see single.php or any other page taking such high loads.

    I disabled all the plugins and tested, but same result as before.

    Also my server has several wordpress installations, only this site (other sites has different themes) has this type of issue due to the boldr-lite theme.

    Please check and issue an update to reduce the server load.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi, every request to WordPress is processed by index.php, which is why most of the CPU usage is linked to this file. Note that this is WordPress’ main index.php file, not the theme’s index.php file.
    A high CPU load may indicate a traffic spike or DDOS attempt. I suggest you look at your server’s log and see if your site gets an abnormally high number of (spam) requests, and investigate the source of such traffic.

    If your site gets low traffic and still high CPU usage, I suggest you try to get more details on what happens during each page load, this should greatly help to identify the culprit.
