I am hosting a single wordpress site on the linux economy shared hosting plan.
Resource limits seem to reach their limits, when a single visitor loads the site.
I kept Getting Resource Levels breached Notifications, and decided to investigate.
Apparently, the PHP version desperately needs an upgrade to 7. There were innumerable security threats patched for PHP 5. Also, Opcache is not optimal in PHP 5. Also Memory Leaks galore.
If you can not upgrade to 7 for whatever reasons best known to you, make those reasons and an ETA to PHP 7 visible when people choose a hosting plan.
That said, there is Absolutely NO Reason why PHP 5.6 which I chose, should TOP the CPU and RAM charts.
Is there a leak Not fixed?
What could be the possible reason for PHP hogging 90% Available CPU and Memory?
On a Single visit?
Do you use SUPHP OR fast CGI?
A Note to those who might suggest "Caching plugins for WP".
Right Now, with a site of 4-5 posts and 3-5 pages, and maybe 2-5 visitors per day,
I do not need to expand my attack vector by employing more plugins.
I Intend to use opcache, coupled with a basic object cache that uses a remote redis server.
This , is AMPLE caching for a blog, with moderate traffic.
The problem is NOT Caching, But an unaddressed memory leak, somewhere on the shared host.
Also, There is NO way, a hoster, can debug where the memory leak is, except on his own Jailed Home on the shared host.
Thank you for posting. If you're hitting resource limits with a single visitor there's something going on there. Especially if you've got a vanilla WordPress with nothing installed and are having the issue. I'd recommend reaching out to our support team.
