Fix Server Overload due to Bots, Optimize Wordpress Site, Minimize executions!

Our issue:

I recently updated nearly 4000 posts (title tags, slugs, focus keyword, meta description). We have, overall 8000 posts on our blog. We get between 500-600 visits a day. However, our page goes down the moment we stop the cloudflare ddos interstitial. Our site cannot stay up. We have major server overload. Nearly 200,000 request daily.

We need a solution to keep our site up. Will your suggestions keep our site up?

Siteground response:

Hello Salvador,

Thank you for contacting our Help Desk.

To provide you with more information on the matter, I checked your server's statistics and I see that it is currently a bit overloaded as you can see from the errors generated in its server's log:

[Sun May 24 12:16:26.611150 2020] [:error] [pid 40576] Execute of /home/movieboo/public_html/[login to view URL] stopped because of load 34.09

According to the access logs, there are many accesses from spam referral bots and other bots that are indexing your websites as you can see from the details below:

You can limit their access by setting certain rules following the tutorials I am sending below in order to decrease the resource usage:

[login to view URL]

[login to view URL]

[login to view URL]

After you apply the modifications for all of your websites, the problem should not occur again. As an alternative solution, you can add additional resources to your server that could handle such traffic.

If you need any further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us back at any moment and we will be more than glad to help you further.
