I recently installed Apache/MySQL/phpMyAdmin and WordPress on my mac so I could have a dev environment for my live wordpress site. Shortly after installing and setting up a local version of my live site, I received a notification from my hosting company, Siteground, that my live site had too many site executions in the last 24 hours.
The data on Siteground(IP address, time of executions) suggested my machine and, most likely, my recent install was to blame. After turning off the stack, the problem abated. Yesterday, after weeks of having no issues, I got brave and turned everything on to test some site changes I wanted to implement. By the end of the day, my Siteground account said once again I had exceeded the maximum number allowed daily executions.
By all appearances, it looks like every time I turn on localhost (Apache/MySQL) it’s somehow causing executions on my live site.
Admittedly, I’m not a professional stack/web developer, and I could have misconfigured something. Would anyone have any suggestions as to how to go about resolving this issue?
