Spiking CPU usage with friendly URL's

Apr 20, 2013 at 12:24 AM
I have my site hosted with Power DNN and we just upgraded the DNN site to 7.0.

The problem is, we are still running a 3.7.8 Active Forums and every time a user links to a URL, the server CPU spikes.

I am not convinced that upgrading Active Forums to 5.0 will fix this problem.

I need some insight on this ASAP. Our site is down and I need a fix. FAST!

I can't provide much assistance here because my involvement in the project started at version 5 and I do not have the 3.X/4.X source code.

Obviously, 3.7.8 is a very old version and I believe there were some performance enhancements in 4.0. You may want to try upgrading to 4.X.

Note that upgrading directly from 3.X to 5.X is not supported.
