Problem behind the “CPU Quota Exceeded” message

Posted on Friday, April 6th 2007 1:37 am by menj in Web Hosts

It seems that the WordPress index.php file on the www.menj.org is causing the CPU quota to exceed 20 seconds and overloading the host. I’ve already upgraded the WordPress files but the problem still persist.

I am not sure what I am going to do next. If the problem continues I might just go for another web hosting and close down this one.

      Hey, it has to be BlueHost’s problem cos my under utilised hosting there got the same problem too. I only have Frenzrss.com and Christian-Journey.com which have very little traffic. And yeah, I got the message whenever I tried visiting some of your blogs.

      I am not sure if it is some kind of flood attacks. My blog http://www.liewcf.com kena as well. The hosting provider installed “mod_evasive” module to block the attacks.
