Support » Fixing WordPress » Maxed out Memory problem

  • Resolved limavadyhigh


    Hi all, we use WordPress for our school website ( For the past number of months we’ve had some on-going problems – mainly plugin related. First off, WP Super Cache and WP Stats went mental causing our database to be 600+ MB. After it frequently crashed the MySQL server our hosting company suggested we strip the database and move the site on to a VPS. After I resolved the issue things have calmed down, and we now only have the essential plugins running to maintain our site. We’ve been experiencing 2 strange ongoing issues though, they are detailed below:

    1) Even with the required feature enabled within WordPress I am unable to blog via email or my iPhone app (which we did before Christmas) and it’s a feature I’d like to use more often.

    2) On Apaches ‘Service Status’ area, the server load is usually around 0.07 – 1.15 (4 cpus). The memory used area though tells a different story. It sneaks up from 44% to a whopping 100% and I can’t understand why. If I end HTTP services and restart it falls to acceptable levels again but throughout the day slowly makes its way up to 100%. I presume something is hogging the memory but don’t know what – or how to fix it.

    Unfortunately I’m not technically minded. Would anyone know how to resolve these two issues?

    Warmest regards, Chris
