    There are many processes running under the index.php file, associated to my user name, that are killing the site, literally.

    I cannot get rid of this problem and it is getting so serious that it downs the http service on my VPS many times a day.

    Here is an example of a process created by this problem:
    /usr/bin/php /home/l********/public_html/index.php

    Could anyone help me, please?

    Can't anyone help me with this, please?

    My site was just brought down by the hosting company for overloading the node.

    Please help!

    First of all install a cache plugin like WP Super Cache and set "htaccess method" with 86400 expiration time or longer.

    If you have too many posts (more than 3000) consider deleting the old ones. I wrote a post about it here:

    And finally, change your theme because it may be using scripts like timthumb.php that rebuild the thumbnails every now and then.
