2007 at 1:42 pm Reddit-proofing WordPress

By Mick West [UPDATE] Since writing this

I had another huge spike in traffic (20,000 visitors in a day), which again caused a crash.
As a result, I installed WP-Super Cache, which is much more robust that WP-Cache.
I also adjusted the theme to use a static stylesheet (style.css) rather than a dynamic one (style.php) -.

This totally eliminates all load on the PHP and MySQL backend

vastly improving the situation.
The use of style.php vs.
style.css varies by theme, it’s an option in the tiga theme used here, but for many themes is unnecessary.
….
Some time this morning my blog started acting a bit wonky, giving me errors about not being able to connect to the database, and then finally becoming inaccessible.
I could not even get into my server control panel , and had to request a power cycle.
After it came back up, I found out why it was having problems.
I’d been linked from reddit.com, a user-generated news site, and I was getting a new connection every few seconds, already several thousand connection had been made, and the sheer number of requests was crashing the server.
All of the request were for this page: http://cowboy programming .com/2007/01/04/mature-optimization-2/ But why was this making the server crash.
Well, the most immediate problem was that wp-cache was not enabled.

This meant that every page view had to be re-built from the MySQL database using PHP

If the requests are coming in faster than the page can be built, then they’ll get backed up.
Eventually thing crunch to a stop, seeing as the basic workings of WordPress also require database connections .
And since cPanel also uses a database, it too fails to work.
I could probably improve this somewhat by increasing the number of connections , but really they should be cached.
So I re-enabled the cache, and things seemed to go swimmingly.
I then took a look at what was being downloaded as part of the page.
I was rather surprised to discover that the SyntaxHighlighter plugin was serving up a bunch of JavaScript, even though it was not used on this particular page.
That seems like a bit of a bug.
I was able to trim this down quite a bit by disabling every language except for C++.  later I hacked it to only include the JavaScript if needed.
I then noticed that my header image and my background image were about 100K each, which is rather silly.
I took them both into photoshop, and tweaked them down to about 15K.
The background image was a GIF, but this was still compressable by a significant amount by just setting “lossy” to a small number like 4 or 5, and there was no perceptible degradation .
Finally.

My Reddit effect was seemingly having a knock-on effect in South Korea

where I had linked to a 2.5MB pdf file that was hosted at Seoul National University.
This was currently inaccessible.
I’m not sure, but suspect a few people were trying to download it (I was at 5,000 visitors by then).
I wanted to re-host it locally, but I could not even read it myself.
So I just deleted the link, then 20 minutes later things had died down, so I was able to grab the file.
I re-hosted it on my server, and put up a new link.
So my server has been up about six hours now, .

And since then it’s been continued to be hit fairly constantly from Reddit

In that time there has been 70,000 accesses (3.17 per second) , accounting for 724MB.
It’s about 20 times the normal daily traffic for this site.
Here’s a graphical look at what happened: As you can see, bandwidth is not really the problem .
It peaks at 1Mb/sec, and my server can serve at 100Mb/sec.
You could probably handle this load on a 768K DSL line.
The Server degrades severely at around 8:00AM, then around 8:20 is when I reboot it.
I re-enable the cache a few minutes after this, but this does not have any effect on the bandwidth, seeing as the pages being served are identical, .

Just less load on the PHP/MySQL back end

Then at around 10:00AM I start optimizing, shrinking the background and header images, and trimming the syntax highlighter, which more than halves the bandwidth.

Regards, Jim Mirkalami 2 David says: March 7th, 2008 at 3:50 pm If you’re on a hosting plan with tight bandwidth restrictions, submitting content to social networks could be more harmful to you than good.
This article has saved me a lot of hassle in handling with vast amounts of requests easily and a lot less painfully; thanks.

2008 at 10:19 pm Very good plugin

5 estetik says: March 28th, 2008 at 12:12 am I think using the stylesheet file as style.css causes a fast web page load.
Great idea.
Thanks a lot.

12 varun says: April 6th, 2008 at 12:34 am thanks for such a useful plugin….
13 Don says: April 6th, 2008 at 5:16 am what i found help s reduce the strain on wordpress or any server in general is caching (as you have mentioned) and enabeling gzip.
though I know the plugin has sissues with gziped content.
What you could also try is to cache sql queries (ask your host about this).
14 Gene says: April 11th, 2008 at 1:33 pm WordPress does seem to put a massive strain on my sites when one of the articles goes viral and I get a massive surge of traffic.
I think I’m going to follow some of your tips to see if they help 15 Vids says: April 12th, 2008 at 3:31 pm Usefull post.
Thank you.
Does WP Super cache works also with new wp 2.5.
16 says: April 12th, 2008 at 4:05 pm Yes, it works with 2.5, you just need to make sure you have the latest version (0.6.2) 17 Jen says: April 13th, 2008 at 9:33 am @Mick: Is WP-Super Cache still running well for you.
18 says: April 13th, 2008 at 10:12 am Seems fine.
I’ve not really had any huge spikes though.
I’m pretty sure it could handle a slashdotting though.

19 Jen says: April 13th

2008 at 10:34 am Ok, thanks Mick.
Going to install it right now.
20 WordPress Themes Park says: May 4th, 2008 at 3:33 pm wow huge traffic 21 dizi izle says: May 5th, 2008 at 12:10 am what i found help s reduce the strain on wordpress or any server in general is caching (as you have mentioned) and enabeling gzip.
