Infintely Requesting itself

  • Hey,

    A week ago ( even before I upgraded to 3.0 i noticed that my bandwidth usage increased like 1000 % while the visitor count remained relatively same. I got a message from my hosting provider that I was using 50 GB of bandwidth a DAY for my tiny blog 😐 . Later they told me that it was because ” wordpress was infinitely requesting itself”. It got to a point where it began to strain the resources of the shared server.I upgraded to 3.0 hoping it will all clear out , but it did not.

    Any ideas on what I can do to get it to stop .

  • Request more specific information (server log) for how "wordpress was infinitely requesting itself"

    Also, have you recently installed any new plugins?

    Nope .. no new plugins.. where can i find the specific logs that need to be analysed ?

    Since it’s a shared server you’ll probably need to ask your hosting provider for the pertinent logs.

    Need to check the activity log. Open a ticket with your hosting company immediatly as mentioned. Have seen where this is caused by SQL injection.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Thank you for contacting Hosting Support.

    It appears the over-utilization is being caused primarily by your account accesseing itself repeatedly. Here is a brief look at your log files during the time of over-utilization.
