    I’ve been using WP Remote for years and haven’t really had problems until lately. I manage 6 websites on my C-Panel hosting and they’ve run smoothly until the past week. After some digging, I discovered dozens of PHP Process were still running over the past 24 hours, hogging my CPU Usage, Memory Usage, Number of Processes, I/O Usage.

    I called my hosting provider and they recommend to turn off every plugin and experiment with each plugin. The first one I tried was the most obvious, WP Remote. I came back after 24 hours and it had half a dozen of processes still in progress and wouldn’t auto-terminate.

    I turned off WP Remote and tried Wordfence. No problem whatsoever. I turned that off and tried a few others, but still – no problem. Turned on WP Remote once more and the same problem happened.

    This is very frustrating because users can’t get to any of my sites and unless I manually go to my C-Panel PHP Processes and kill those in progress. In taking to both my host provider and getting advice from two WP User groups on WP, everyone agreed that there is some kind of faulty code within WP Remote that needs to be fixed.
