    Sorry to say but you are doing many things wrong.

    To start off, if you are using Nginx you don’t need Cpanel/WHM/Plesk offered by Hostgator.
    You are already spending $200/month on hosting (ref)
    So better get a dedicated server without bloated WHM/Cpanel.

    WordPress needs PHP, MySQL & Postfix (a sendmail program). You can install them from easily using this tutorial.

    Next, wordpress needs RAM. You have 4GB for $200. Again you can get much more RAM per $ using or some other dedicated server provider.


    Now if you are happy with Hostgator (which gets dedicated server from SoftLayer by the way), rather than using a DB manager plugin, you can use Hostgator control panel’s to backup mysql.

    Or from command line, schedule a mysqldump.

    If you want to otpmize mysql, you can do using a another cron job

    Finally, mysql needs tweaking. It you don’t do it nothing will help. Please refer this to tune your mysql –

    @jmorrow Did you figure anything out with the plugin? I’m having the same issue, but it’s only causing about 32% for me. But even that seems like a lot for something that’s not supposed to be running all the time.
