Support » Fixing WordPress » CPU spikes to 70% when opening a page, php-cgi!

  • Hi there

    Hopefully somebody can help me. I run wordpress on a vps with a single core cpu 2ghz+ and 2Gb of ram. Now, When I open a page, the cpu load spikes up to about 60 or 70 percent for about a second, this is not only on pages of my website, but also on the wordpress admin pages. It’s “php-cgi” which causes the cpu usage spike. I tried to deactivate all plugins, still got the spike. I run php5 on my server. Is this normal? What can I do about it? I mean 70& loaded for a single user..? How can i simulate multiple visitors browsing my wordpress site?

  • What you are seeing is normal. You should be using some form of caching to ensure that you are not overloading the server. WordPress is CPU intensive and not meant to be run without a cache.
