My site crashed earlier today. I de-activated all of my plugins, and a one-at-a-time re-activation showed cMap to be the culprit.
I’ve got the latest WordPress version running, never had a problem before.
Any thoughts?08/11/2017 at 10:25 am #432027
RE: My site crashed earlier today.
Could you better define “crash”? More specifically what was the actual result? Any error messages?
What version of cMap? Is it the latest? is it “stock”? Meaning, have there been any edit made to it? Have you created any custom override files? Do you have any code snippets added to your site for Connections or cMap?
Did you recently apply any other updates when this started?
Can you share the link to the directory page?08/11/2017 at 11:38 am #432041Bill BowmanGuest
Version 5.2.1, no changes. Don’t think I have any active directories right now.
I got the error message telling me the site was not available. Went away when I disabled cMap.
Only new thing I did was upgrade to the latest WordPress version. No new plugins since then.
Thanks.08/11/2017 at 12:27 pm #432043
Sounds like the resources allocated to PHP have been exhausted. I see you have all (most?) the other template activated too. Try this, deactivate the other and activate cMap again. Same result? If you can activate cMap, then try deactivating all other plugins you are not using and then reactivate the Connections template. What’s the result?08/11/2017 at 1:24 pm #432048Bill BowmanGuest
I went into my cPanel and found that they still had me on PHP version 5.4, so I upgraded to 5.6 and re-activated the cMap plugin. So far no problem, so that may have been the cause.

Connections is tested on PHP5.2.x and greater. So is cMap. PHP 5.6 is faster and more resource efficient. So, that could account for it. If you host has the option to run PHP7.1. I recommend switching to it as it is far faster and more resource efficient. Not all plugins will work and fail to run. You’ll notice immediately if that is the case. WP actually even recommends PHP7.08/11/2017 at 2:36 pm #432054Bill BowmanGuest
I actually did boost it to 7.1. I paused at 5.6 to make sure nothing untoward happened, first. So far, so good.
