Wordpress VPS load issue due to attacks
I am facing this weird issue on my VPS where i get 100s of http calls at the same time which create load on my VPS because of the php and mysql on use so my VPS company take down my VPS regularly. I tried CSF, many wordpress plugins to stop brute force attacks, xml-rpc attacks and almost everything but no success i can't stop these attacks.
Just now i had 800 connections to my VPS and it went down again. And this got nothing to do with ddos because i switched to many vps providers with ddos protection but the issue remain same.
Any idea how can i fix it?
