To start with, I don't know anything about coding and stuff. I am here to seek help from experts hoping they can help me resolve the issue.
I have a website/blog that runs on WordPress.
I have a VPS Server on which the website/blog runs. 2GB RAM, 2GB VSWAP, 80GB Storage and 1000 TB Bandwidth
Here is the problem:
At least once a day, my server goes on override with 100% RAM and VSWAP usage.
I tried to investigate the issue through cPanel (AwStat) and found something really perplexing.
"Unknown robot (identified by 'bot' followed by a space or one of the following characters _+:,.;/-) (HITS: 10,642+270) (Bandwidth: 820.94 MB) (Visit time: 10 Mar 2018 - 07:14)".
Upon further drilling down, I found something totally unbelievable! All these hits came from my own server IP.
Next I went on to see visitors' log on cPanel and found this:
"THEY WERE ALL ORIGINATING FROM MY WP-CONTENT FOLDER OR WAS A DIRECT URL OF MY WEBSITE."
I am totally stumped! What is causing these unusual hits from my own server from within my own website?
Can anyone help me to understand so that I can eliminate the issue?
