CPU Usage spiked to 100%

Recommended Posts




We have noticed that running Pagelines is making our server spike up the cpu usage to a 100% then it gets stuck there and makes the website super slow to browse. We were running the exact same setup on a shared hosting servive earlier but now shifted to a dedicated server with a dual core with each core of 3.1 Ghz Dual core with 8 mb cache.


We've tried turning off all the plugins which was fruitless, when we changed the theme to Twenty 12 the CPU usage came back to normal. We've been facing this issue for already a few days now and it effects the business terribly. The live support was unable to help us with it. Please review our site and let us know what is going on since the hosting company has been unable to determine anything at all except that it is a php script thats causing the overload.

As with all the other 'why is my site slow' topics... we do require a lot more information than just your url!


For example, enable debug in the pagelines advanced tab, create a php.ini and give us the url


Do you have any php opcode cache installed? how is it configured?


Apache/nginx? what version of php? is it self compiled?


mysql could be holding everything up if it isnt tuned properly

      I've figured out how to turn a single section into a plugin by looking at the code for the PL Next Box. And this loads into DMS with no problems.     
      Here's an example of the header
      /*   Plugin Name: SMS Spacer   PageLines: true   Version: 1.0.0   Section: true   Class Name: SMS_Spacer   Filter: component   Loading: active */ class SMS_Spacer extends PageLinesSection { //do section stuff } However, I have yet to figure out how to load in a pack of sections from one plugin. Is this possible?
      Am I posting this message in the most applicable forum category?

      I was curious why our video is loading so slow on our site we are working on http://pharmacistrecruitersusa.com/
      When its finally up and running it runs smooth, but until it loads it just a blank white screen. This is just a sample video as well, low quality. Its going to take forever to load when we get a better quality video in place of it.
      So why is it taking so much time to load?
      Is there a program or settings you suggest to make the video load quicker?
      I used after effects to render out my mp4 and then used a convertor for the webm and ogg

      Installed and updated the plugin and could barely use wordpress.  I did a scan and the speed was a D, I deactivated it and deleted it and now performance is better and backend loads better.  Uninstalled all other plugins til I got to that and it is what was slowing site down.  Just wanted to let you know.

      Hi, i'm sure this is a lower-than-average question.
      I've tried to understand how iboxes work but i can't get out of it. I don't know where and how to add the image to "images" media type iboxes.
      Can you also tell me what attribute should i change to modify mouseover backcolor for "icon font" media type
      Thank you

      Hello People & Thanks in advance for any light you could bring !
      I have this terrible problem i cant understand why it appear... 
      I have 3 different websites with the same Pagelines Lite template and in all of them i have the same custom code and sliders, they are really similar; No new plugins were installed since the Quicslider Worked...
      Here is what is happening... :
      the Quickslider wont load... meaning that it only loads a 1000x10px frame, like the one it appears when you wait until the quickslider's image loads... 
      Detail: None of the quicksliders will load in the entire website:
      Please, if you know the answer or anything it could be causing this problem i would be really thankfull !
      Cheers everybody!
