It’s been a whole day since my server keeps exceeding the max. 4000MB I can possibly allocate, and it’s completely unusable at this stage. I only host a bunch of WP sites and I did not update any plugin / theme / settings / whatnot when this issue started occurring yesterday.
My support ticket (#6229793) is untouched and I’m running out of options. I managed to use FTP eventually and deleted the cache plugin (WP Super Cache) thinking it might be the culprit. No change. I’m unable to work in the backend as anything I do crashes the server.
I used a sort pmem command and it seems that the fault is possibly with php53.cgi. I’ve then changed the main domain from php 5.3 to 5.4, thinking it may help. It doesnt seem that it did.
I’m at my wits end and support keeps mum about it, not even a “looking into it” message.
Any ideas how could I find out what causes this? Mind you, the logs show I’m using in excess of 7GB RAM some times and all I have is a handful of small wordpress sites. Prior to this issue, 1GB RAM would’ve been sufficient.
Thanks all for any input!
