Today I receive this email:

Recently your account 'howieforums' has been causing high load on the server.
This is a serious problem as it degrades server performance for all of our
clients whom you share the server with. High loads cause problems such as
delayed e-mail and slow site loading times. I have created this ticket
(#2995963) on your behalf to track this problem more efficiently. The following
applications/scripts appear to be causing the high load:

- Apache (CPU usage)
- /forum/misc.php?show=ccbmessages

Apache on your account is consistently using about 12% of the server's CPU.
Your hosting plan allows you to use up to 1%.

I am not a real experienced with vBulletin. this misc.php? that is causing so much load, what can I do about it? or is there nothing I can do about it? I have about 15 users simultaneously on my forum at one time, most of the times less.

He said I can go with a semi dedicated, but I am still limited to 5% CPU load, which he said I average even over that.

Any ideas? I don't really have the money for a dedicated. Or does anyone know where I can get a dedicated for relatively cheap?

I suggest you try disabling the plugin that has that, you can disable them one by one in the admin cp until you find that misc.php?show=ccbmessages isn't working anymore.

Or in general, remove misc.php, if it's not seeming to be used.

I found that it was linked to the chatbox.

I am still running at 5% load. I guess I am going to have to go the semi dedicated route.

I suggest you get a cPanel VPS. If you need help configuring it I'll be happy to help.

Shared hosting sucks and you are seeing why... :)
