Site shut down by hosting company because script w

Site shut down by hosting company because script is causing 'high load on server...forced to take immediate action for the health of the server'

Has anyone else had this problem before? What did you do to resolve it?

The cache is set be refreshed manually, Primary cache size is 25 and Output is 50....

I'm hoping its an oversight on my end so that I can finish up the site and move forward with my marketing plan...but want to make sure the site isn't to 'stressful' for the hosting company. Any recommendations are more than welcome.

To say I was surprised when the hosting company contacted me would be an understatement, I'm using HostGator, I've been using them for years without a problem.

1. Larger cache sizes cause more server load.  Smaller cache sizes actually tend to make things easier.  Having an unlimited cache size (0) is frequently better, but can also cause issues with larger shops.

2. Using robots.txt to limit crawl rate (using crawl-delay) helps a lot.

3. Using robots.txt and .htaccess to prevent bad robots from crawling your shop helps a lot.

4. Keeping a single instance of cpshop below the 50,000 product threshold helps a lot.

5. Using cpoutput helps a lot, depending on your traffic patterns.

This is an issue for me, too. Thank you for those ideas, Marty. I confess I need a little more direction.

1. For this one, I made my Primary Cache Size 10mg and my Output Cache Size 20mg, as recommended. Clear cache once a week.

2. I don't have a robot.txt file and don't know what it should say. I can create one and upload it, but I need to know what to put into it. Can anyone help with this?

3. Ditto for an .htaccess file. Don't have one because I don't know what it should say. I've tried to learn about this but it's like Greek to me.

4. No problem there.

5. I use cpoutput.

Thank you!

I am also having this issue. It's happened to both of my sites on three separate occasions.

I'm not sure why it's suddenly happening since I've had the sites for 6+ years.

I'd need some assistance too as to what to put in a robot.txt or .htaccess file to keep it from happening.

I was shut down again today and told that I needed to upgrade my cgi scripts to stop it from happening. Any thoughts on this?

Just a quick follow-up:
I went through Admin, and edited the 'Program Options' and I haven't heard from the hosting company again. (keeping my fingers crossed that, I don't jinks myself.)
