Support » Fixing WordPress » CPU usage is too high, need to identify the problem..

  • Hello,

    Yesterday I’ve got an email from my host, they say the cpu usage of the shared server is too high couse of my site and they are going to shut down my site if I can’t solve the problem.

    I’m sorry if this is a stupid question, but I’m not a good coder, so I’m having hard times understanding where or what is causing the problem.

    I tried disabling some unused plugins, optimized (the little I could) sql database, I even disabled Statpress-Reloaded plugin, couse I’ve read somwhere in internet that this plugin can cause this kind of high cpu usage issue 9even if I liked it. Than I have installed DB-Cache plugin, in the hope this can help, but I’m not sure if this help.

    More details:

    my site is:

    wordpress version: 2.8.2

    the site is on a shared server from and it is running since 3 months ago

    plugins actually running:

    All in One SEO Pack
    Category Icons
    Contact Form 7
    DB Cache
    Google XML Sitemaps
    NextGEN Gallery
    Really Simple CAPTCHA
    Register Plus
    Shadowbox JS
    Simple Tags
    User Photo
    WordPress Database Backup
    WP Super Cache
    WP Wall

    I have to say that WP-Optimize and DB-Cache where istalled after the email I got hoping those could help with the issue.

    I have istalled SQL Monitor too, but I am not able to fully understand the results it shows.

    I really apreciate any hint on how to identify the problem, or where to see the cpu usage…

    Thanks in advance for your help. And sorry for my bad english 🙂

    If you need more details please ask.
