  • would also be useful if some skilled wordpress users gave me their input on this problem

    Most people will say that "this must be caused by one of your plugin", because as far as everyone understood, Wordpress' core module is much stable upon its release (unless you using their beta version, and also if there's any)

    For starter, please look back at what you've just done to your site. By look back, I mean thinking of any changes that you have done, like (of course) installing plugin, settings, performing pentesting like detectify or something similar. You name it.

    Or perhaps it's neither you nor Wordpress fault at all, but rather your site is under "attack" by someone. In this case, then you may need additional protection to your site, like Wordfence or using Cloudflare (I'd recommend Wordfence if you weren't the one who set up DNS'es between your site and domain name)

  • it would help if you gave us your website address
    so we can see how much time it takes to be displayed also errors

    general recommendations

    it is also possible that some bot or person continuously send a request to server
    in that period

    Anyway, you can always find those wordpress expertise at their official site. I'm just giving you the "picture" of possibilities of what's going on to your site

    my website url is: https://nicholasjoseytdb.rf.gd/-home but i don't know if you will be able to access it at the moment as its currently suspended by infinityfree for going over cpu limits and the infinityfree website suspension is also causing issues with my websites ssl certificate only when my website gets suspended by infinityfree, ssl certificate runs fine when my website is running normally

    So what would you do?

    If you have many plugins, I suggest you to disable any unnecessary plugins and only enable the important ones.

    your website was suspended also on Sep 7 for the same reason
    I believe that the problem is in one of the plugins
    because as you said you just edited the page and was suspended for the CPU

  • Hi guys, update the problem has seemed to go away after I did some optimization on wordpress from a guide that was linked by OxyDac
