Help! Server load problems with WordPress!
Help! I host my websites at Westhost.com, and I have been there for about 7 years. Recently, we changed 6 of our websites from different CMS into WordPress. Somce of those other websites used PHPNuke, some used MovableType, and one used a home-grown CMS. Now all 6 use WordPress
In the last few months that I have changed all those wbesites to WordPress, I have been receiving warnings from Westhost that my websites have been using too many system resources on the server and they are threatening to shut me down! Of the 6 WordPress websites I run, 4 have received multiple warnings.
Now, over the last few months, none of my websites have seen a dramatic rise in traffic. And, I still have one website (my largest) which gets about 50,000 page impressions a day (quite a lot for a blog), but that is NOT using WordPress and it is causing no server load problems. it is humming along fine with minimal problems to Westhost.
The problem is WordPress. I have seen others on theis board complain about similar problems. It seems to use lots of resources when accessing the database.
Here is a print of my logs to show where the problems lie:

Does anyone have suggestions or is there a plan for the future to remedy this?
