Support » Plugin: WP-o-Matic » wp-o-matic crashed my shared hosting

  • Its fantastic that finally WP-p-matic is back and being supported. For the last two years I have managed to use the old version and it just about kept working

    One big problem with the new version… If you use it on an existing database already containing thousands of wpomatic posts it will use so much CPU that it crashes.

    I suspect it is the duplicate post check. Rather than checking only the last 5 posts or so it is trying to search every existing post for duplicates.

    Does anyone know how to fix this so I can ask my shared hosting to re-enable my account?

    Hi @mv5896, I don’t think that the duplicate post check is causing this.

    The query is very simple and easy to resolve with low CPU:

    SELECT * FROM {$this->db[‘campaign_post’]} WHERE campaign_id = {$campaign->id} AND feed_id = {$feed->id} AND hash = ‘$hash’

    You can get a detailed log from each query running on your server from phpmyadmin.

    Hi. I have the same problems (server crash) using FeedWorpress and I’m looking for an alternative plugin for importing feeds. A part to the detailed features of the pluign, I need to understand which plugin can support the feed update for a large number of feed sources. I have about 300+ feed sources to check every day and every time the cron runs, server goes down.

    Does Wp-o-matic has the same problems?

    How many feed sorces can support this plugin without problems?

    Any idea on how to solve this problem (know any free or premium plugin) which can avoid such problems?
