I'm having some issues with frequent processing areas on my site. Every now and then I used to get the "maximum number of processes reached" error message - which wasn't a big deal, I would refresh and never be torubled for more than a minute or so. But in the last 4 or 5 days I've been getting this error a lot, and it can lock me out for 10 or 15 mins at a time.
I have a process limit of 4 on my site which was put into place more than a year ago, but only until the last couple of days have I started having issues with it on a daily basis - even just trying to open the new post screen or add a new user.
I understand that the limit can be reached when running a heap of plugins at once (which I don't do anyway) and this error will pop up from time to time, but what I don't know is why this is now happening so frequently when all I'm doing is trying to open up a post or simple back end features that I use everyday.
Does anyone have any solutions to avoid this happening? Because at the moment I'm really struggling to even add new posts!
