Support » Fixing WordPress » Too many visitors…how can I optimize cpu usage?

  • Hello guys, recently my wordpress based website has increased significantely it’s amount of traffic reaching around 4000 upto 7000 visitors/day. These visitors are mainly visiting my website during afternoon with 150/200 visitors online. While during the rest of the day it’s much less.
    Now, since I’ve migrated to a new semi-dedicated server I’m still having problems due to the Apache CPU usage which reaches 100% and blocks the server.

    Is there anyway to optimize wordpress? I’ve read about WP-Cache and WP-minify, could these be useful? Is there any problem that I could get on using them?

    Thank you so much for your help!!

  • I prefer hypercache over super cache, but that’s just me. I would also check out Yoast’s rundown here.

    Opcode caching with Xcache will greatly reduce your overhead. Some hosting companies do not allow you to set it up. If you are running on a shared host you would want to contact them first.

    To set up xcache on a shared host follow these directions.

    Wp-minify is a good plugin, but it doesn’t work well with many plugins. Use with caution.
