    Guys, my website involve some mathematics. It turns out that sometimes, this is overcomputed or re-computed. I know it's the host problem cos it wasn't happening when I had low users and also it rarely occurs. I chat up the host but they seem to always talk gibberish. I sometimes see my i/O, entry process, iops, CPU usage, physical memory, virtual memory all filled up. I'm guessing the error occurs when these things get filled up. I don't know what to do. I'm on a shared hosting on namecheap. I don't know if it's really the cause...plus I'm not on WordPress. Help ooo

    This generally occurs when you have a increased amount of traffic. What kind of specifications do you have? Like the ram, I/o? You might need to look into upgrading your package or find another host.

    I/o is 20.... The funny thing is I don't know what plan will increase it and worse, I'm not sure if it is the reason

    Not much we can really go on there. The best person to help would be name Cheap since that is where you are hosting.

    you said that you are on a shared plan so it could be that the configs they have set up on the shared server really don't meet what your needs are. you would need to talk to them about resource usage.

    Or better option since you said they were talking gibberish is to move to a better host. You could even do a shared hosting plan again but that host would be able to tell you then what your site is using and give you a better Idea of what resources that you really need.

    Cheap is good when it works. But 9 times out of 10 it might not be the right option to go with. Better servers and support are always a better option
