Why is my Website very unstable and keeps going down? Why is MySQL maxing out my CPY?
Hi over the last few days i have been getting server timeout and the website hanging, and from what i can see it is saying that MySQL is causing this by looking at the monitor graphs in the DO dashboard.
I have not changed anything on the site since this started apart from updating plugins as normal and updating and changing some stock. I have reverted to the older plugins just in case also, but its still the same.
I have even upgraded to the next droplet, even though it was fine beforehand
It just keeps maxing out the cpu and then the website crashes. Unfortunately i am clueless to this technical stuff and the person who helps me with this site is away and unreachable(great timing i know!) so im desperate for any help(bearing in mind i dont have much technical ability - I have done websites in past on my own, but used managed websites un like DO)
I have attached my MySQL log as i read somewhere this may be useful but i dont know what it even means.
Any help or advice desperately needed.
