    Hi there.

    I have 7 sites running on a VPS with the above cPanel VPS installed. I am unsure if this even cPanel related but figured it was worth a shot. Lets say the host name for this machine is ""

    One of these sites tends to gobble up a pretty big amount of memory. It is a rather old Drupal (5.3) system.

    I have found through webalizer that this site's highest ranked host for visits is the server itself ( To the tune of 5% of total hits. No other site on the server has hits from the server itself.

    Anyone care to guess why the site would be recording hits from it's own host?

    Are you running nginx as a reverse proxy?
