Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress Time Out and 100% Processor Usage Issue

  • I am encountering a recurrent issue that I have run out of ideas on how to solve. I have a website running on Apache 2.2.14, PHP 5.3.2, MySQL 5.6.13, WordPress 3.8.3 using Gantry and Ximenia.

    The problem is that it sometimes goes to 100% processor usage, and the site times out, and any communications with the server become extremely sluggish.

    I have had this happen on two different physical machines now (with mirror copies of the same site) (both with traffic), so I know that the problem has to be related to one of the items mentioned above.

    The server logs do not mention anything related to this issue.

    I cannot determine if there are any plugins or themes that are causing it. Every plugin that is currently installed is being used.

    The following plugins are used:

    Allow PHP in Posts and Pages
    Arconix FAQ
    Category Post List Widget
    Contact Form 7
    Custom Permalinks
    E-MAILiT Social Media Sharing Widget
    Executable PHP Widget
    Gantry Template Framework
    Google Analytics for WordPress
    Google Language Translator
    JS & CSS Script Optimizer
    NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster
    Page View
    Popular Widget
    Really Simple Popup
    ReFlex Gallery
    Register Plus Redux
    RokCommon Library
    SEO Friendly Images
    Simple Tags
    Twitter Widget Pro
    WooCommerce Beanstream Payment Gateway
    WP Tell a Friend Popup Form

    I tried creating a mirror site, but the problem appears (guessing) to appear when there is traffic to the site. The problem does not appear on the mirror copy of the site that has no traffic.

    If anyone could assist me, I would greatly appreciate it.
