Hi Cpanel admins,

I have a problem and I would really appreciate if any of you can point in the right direction. The thing is that for the last couple of days I have been seeing my site running awfully slow and under the "processes" area in Cpanel over 20 of them keep popping up, terminating and popping up. Endlessly. I am currently hosting with Hostgator and their incompetence has led me to never ask them a question agains, given that their most common answer is "we are going to disable your site until you find a solution."

Have any of you seen this issue before? Could it be wordpress related, hosting related?

I disabled the plugins for a full day and the problems persist.

Thank you

Hmmm, I don't see the area "processes" in my cPanel. Most likely it is some custom module/addon developed by HostGator to make their users be to monitor processes generated by the websites.

Anyway, could you please show us what you see exactly ? It will help us to understand what kind of processes your account generates. Additionally please let us know if you use shared/vps or dedicated hosting. Also, do you have SSH access to your account ?
