I'm a IT Engineer who is trying to solve a problem with a wordpress server.
This is the situation:
A wordpress with woocomerce plugin installed on a web server with apache.
A mysql on a RDS (AWS Database server).
The wordpress has become mad, its doing a lot of connections to the database and I don't know why. As you know, for every new connection, apache creates a new process.
This produce that the server crash because it gets out of memory. It doesn't matter how many memory I put in the server, wordpress will eat it.
I'm pretty sure that it's a bug in the code but i'm unable to identify it and I worked too much in the design for rebuild the web.
I stabilized the RAM consume thanks to the mod_evasive to 1,5GB (it's insane for a test web server with only one user).
Someone could help me?
