Websites don't load. Memory problem. Any solutions


All my websites ( Wordpress blogs ) on my Dreamhost account started to load extremely slowly and very rarely

The support team told me that:

my scripts have been getting automatically killed by the Process Watcher script due to sites going over memory limits on the shared server:

2011-09-18 08:54:15 procwatch2 INFO: Process(pid=649, name=‘php5.cgi’,
uid=zargon5(2209571), tty=None, cpu=5.8, rss=28040.0, vsize=134260.0):
kill for total RAM
2011-09-18 08:54:15 procwatch2 INFO: Process(pid=651, name=‘php5.cgi’,

Do you know what could be the problem?

Thanks a lot!

You probably have several plugins that take up a lot of memory. I use WP Super-Cache and turned off Fast CGI. That stopped the my from keeping too many memory-hogging PHP processes running.

Two other setup I haven’t looked into is this combo:
W3 Total Cache
