Fix high CPU usage / Wordpress / Dokan Multi-Vendor Site / Block Malicious Robots / Plugin Checkup

Please read:

I have a site ground cloud server. For some reason it is experencing high CPU Usage. It started to get worse when I was installing Dokan Business on a wordpress site, but according to the siteground engineers it's happening because of many bots.

What is happening? Server load shooting up to above 200 and crashing. I need it under control.

Here is a note from Siteground engineer:

Hello Salvador,

Thank you for contacting our Help Desk.

The server got overloaded. Here are the most executed scripts:

Hits Scripts

47404 /home/movieboo/public_html/[login to view URL]

3533 /home/movieboo/public_html/[login to view URL]

960 /home/movieboo/public_html/[login to view URL]

As you see the issue is mainly triggered by your primary domain - [login to view URL]

I see a lot of hits from bots:

You can solve the issue by following our guides:

[login to view URL]

[login to view URL]

[login to view URL]

bingbot can be blocked by [login to view URL] file and the following lines:

User-Agent: bingbot

Disallow: /

I also see executions generated by the WP Rocket which is interesting because WP Rocket should reduce the resources consumption instead of increasing it.

Hits IP Address User Agent

25397 [login to view URL] WP Rocket/Preload"

I suggest that you reach your developer for further assistance.

If you decided to deal with this on your end you can follow our guides:
