Support » Fixing WordPress » Auto save – multiple entries

  • I am using 2.7,
    my account on bluehost has been suspended as my blog has overloaded the server. I found every autosave has been entered and saved on the database as a new entry – so for every post there are 20-25 versions.
    Bluehost believes it is a WordPress problem,
    would you be able to tell me if it is? Or if anyone else has reported this problem?

  • Did you overload the server or the database? Those are two different issues.

    Autosave does save “versions” of your blog posts, but not necessarily individual post entries. That doesn’t overload a database. What overloads it is when it is over worked, such as something hitting the database too frequently and too much.

    First, find out what their database limits are. Then go through and disabled all of your Plugins one by one to see if they are causing the problem. If they are not changing the impact on the database, and you have updated all of them to work with WordPress 2.7, and you’ve done nothing else in your Theme or code to tweak WordPress, then it could be that their limits are just too low for your site’s needs.

    Thanks Lorelle,
    This is what was said to me on a support Live-chat
    [6:02:35 PM]: Your account was shutdown due to a performacne issue
    [6:02:45 PM]: You’re causing problems for the mysql server

    So I presume it is a database problem on their server.

    I have upgraded tp 2.7 and all my plugins are on the list of compatible for 2.7. It is the same theme I have been using for the last two years – Caotic Soul.

    I am re-installing WP2.7 on a fresh database.
    I do not know what else I can do as a user.




    disable revisions, and the autosave “feature”.

    There are plugins that can do that for you. I haven’t checked if 2.7 has those options built in actually.

    it doesnt, i saw this asked here over the weekend — otto answered.

    Right then, Awmyth, this is such a plugin.

    There are more, I use this one.

    Thanks everyone,

    @ Gangleri, I will try the revision-control first – it is 2.7 compatible so should be above criticism.

    I’ll write to say how I get on.

    The Codex has a page on editing the wp-config.php file, which includes a section called Disabling Post Revisions by adding this:

    define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', false );
