    Hello,

    I'm facing problems with suPHP on my server. It's suddenly generating a lot of processes which makes the load higher and sometimes the server becomes unresponsive and because of very high load the server sometimes doesn't come back online until I reboot. I have included below the list of suphp processes under heavy load condition.

    Code:
     
    root@server1 [~]# ps aux|grep suphp

    root@server1 [~]# 

    The processes stays running for 5-10 minutes on the server and then starts disappearing. Server load comes back to normal when the processes are gone.
    Can anyone please tell me the possible reasons of this sudden flooding by suPHP?

    This sort of issue can be caused by a high load (i.e. number of requests) to a particular website - it's common to see it if a spidering / vulnerability search tool is run against a wordpress or other non cached site on the system and the number of php requests exceeds the capability of your machine to concurrently process them.

    Rather oddly, there is no inbuilt protection in suphp or cPanel to restrict the number of running php processes per user or for the entire system, as far as I'm aware you'll need to add on something like Cloudlinux or deal with the issue in a more hackish / less professional manner (i.e. determine the threshold of concurrent php processes your machine can deal with and run a script to kill requests when this threshold is exceeded to bring load under control).
