    Hi, I have a very slow performance after logging in, especially editing pages in Avia Layout Editor mostly fails now and sometimes I get 500-timeout-errors.
    Error message in WordPress: “Connection interrupted. Saving disabled…”

    I use PHP 7.3 and the latest server settings after contacting the hosting company and usually it should be technically ok now. I also backed up the database after the first error happened, but it still shows up intermediately.

    Could you please log in and check what’s going wrong? (I share the credentials) It’s very urgent, because we want to go online with the site soon (only home page published now).

    Best regards,
    Dirk

    I’m getting that too. My server’s CPU usage is maxed out and the tech support folks at the hosting service are telling me “there are number of simultaneously running php and cgi scripts, as well as cron jobs and shell sessions limit 3554 times.”

    And the 500 error is rather random. The CPU will either be 100/100 or down to 34/100, at any given minute.
    The thing is that I’ve not done anything to the site for weeks with no problem. I’ve checked the Google Analytics and the site traffice is normal. Also, there does not seem to be a brute force attack going on.

    I’ve turned off the plugins and checked, but the see-saw CPU usage result remains the same. I’ve also returned the Enfold version back to 4.6.2 and this didn’t change anything either.

    To view the site, please see private.

    If you have any clues to what might be happening, please let me know. Thanks!

    Hi diggital,

    Can you please check the server log for error?

    Hi laptophobo,

    Please start a separate thread, describe your issue there and give us a link to your website.

    They say it’s a lot of scripts and php. Way beyond my understanding.
    What I am finding is that when I de-activate All-in-one event plugin by Time.ly, some of the CPU resources return. I also found that the WP upgrade to 5.3 may also be responsible. I am having the hosting service restore a previous version of the site (from 5 days ago) to see if that corrects the problem. Then I’ll hold off on any updates until we better understand this problem.

    Thanks for the quick reply on this. I’ll provide an update as soon as I know more. (I imagine others with this Time.ly plugin may be experiencing something similar.)

    Hi laptophobo,

    Thank you for letting us know. I hope you can get it back to normal.

    We’ll be waiting for further feedback.

    Hi Victoria,
    most of the time there’s a timeout and I also saw problems with the plugin wp-optimize which I just disabled.
    Still get the slow performance and another timeout.

    Please find the error-log attached in the private content.

    Best regards,

    Hey guys,

    I started this post and still wait for an answer! As I wrote before, this unfortunately is very urgent and there’s no solution yet how to get it fixed…

    Best regards,
    Dirk

    Dirk,
    By any chance are you using the All-in-One Calendar plugin? If so, that may be the problem.

    Hi laptophobo,

    thanks, no I don’t use this plugin.

    Best regards,

    Hi,

    Can you disable then all the rest of the plugins and check if the issue is still coming?

    Hi Basilis,

    I disabled all plugins and indeed, Yoast SEO and wp-limit-login-attempts both slowed down the performance and caused issues.
    Now editing is quick again. Does it mean we have to leave it like this when going online?

    I didn’t have issues with Yoast before, so what about the SEO now?

    Best regards and thanks for helping,
    Dirk

    Yoast SEO is a very powerful tool, but for many normal users it is a bit oversized.
    If you are clear about what you want to include in a SEO project, you often get along better with less.
    As a caching tool I like to use Cache Enabler at the moment. In combination with WebP Plugin which generates from my jpg and pngs webp this is a good performance increase.

    Since I am having a similar issue, I am wondering if my PHP needs to be upgraded from 7.2 to 7.3. What is the current recommended PHP from Enfold now?

    #1162834

    Hi Guenni007,

    thanks, I will give it a try.
    What’s your suggestion to get the SEO done without the Yoast plugin?

    Best regards,
    Dirk

    #1162835

    I would be interested in Enfolds recommendation as well. The Yoast SEO is indeed a power pig. And as I search for alternatives, The Seo Framework (thhttps://wordpress.org/plugins/autodescription/) is emerging as a great alternative. One reviewer mentioded that it was “lightweight and powerful” but I don’t know if it is substantially.

    I’ll be having to switch out my Yoast SEO plugins on several of my sites. I’m hoping that Seo Framework (or whichever is recommended by Enfold) will be the safe choice.

    Hi,

    Right now one of the best SEO plugins is the Rank Math SEO Plugin

    I would suggest to test this out, it will help you eventually make your SEO better.

    Also, do not trust those type of plugins for your SEO, if you actually want to grow, buy SERank, Ahref, SEMRush and start learning from there.

    Best regards,
    Basilis

    Thanks for the recommendation, Basils.

    The only thing I really use of the Yoast SEO plugin is the ability to change the meta title and description for each page. I already have a pretty good handle on SEO methods, so their plugin is simply too bloated for what I need. I’m hoping that Rank Math will be less taxing on our server’s CPU usage.

    This may be the wrong thread to post this (if so, I’ll start a new thread), but it does pertain to the aforementioned CPU usage issue.
    I’m currently using the Westhost hosting service. Unfortunately, they are not long providing the support and service they once had. Have you come across a hosting environment that works well with Enfold and provides really good customer support 24/7? I’ve found that the really big companies (e.g. GoDaddy) are too big to pay attention to smaller customers.

    Hi Basilis,

    thanks for your recommendation. I’ll give it a try.

    Best regards,
    Dirk
