Hello, I have a problem, don’t know what cause. Using droplet with 2GB RAM 2 CPU, wordpress site on nginx. About 30 - 35 users always online. But CPU is going too high, CPU user about 70% and system <1% Added also cloudflare cdn+full optimisation to speed up, but still slow respond. I don’t think its too much users for this kind of droplet, and using only few wordpress plugins to be quicker. Thanks in advance

Try disabling all of the plugins temporarily, does that cause the CPU usage to drop to normal levels?
