Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress server load on post

  • I have 3,129 posts and 4,624 comments with a lot of attachment pages on my wordpress site. I have installed wp-supercache, don’t have many plugins with about 16 queries per page load. I’ve tried optimizing my dedicated server as best I can, but WordPress is still taking it down. I’ve noticed that sometimes when I publish or edit a post, the load skyrockets and won’t go down until I restart httpd.

    The thing is the load has been shooting up in the morning when I post, but at night everything is fine even if my site is receiving 4 times as many hits.

    Can anyone think of what might be wrong? I’m almost to the point of getting a separate mysql dedi, but I don’t believe I need that kind of setup yet.

  • sunscream, did you ever find a solution? I am having the same issues.

    Same issues here

    Just to add my discoveries so far

    Simple Tags was causing most of the server load by making too many calls to the db

    I disabled it and the site is easily 1000% quicker

    Hmmmm… ok. I don’t use that, I’ve removed all other plugins that I believed to cause a strain. Still in the same boat here. 🙂
