I’m using WordPress. I have disabled all the plugins and even put my website in maintenance mode (so it’s not possible anymore to produce a high amount of usage), I’m still getting the same error even after 1 day.
UPDATE: I needed to re-activate the website, so in order to make the admin panel functional, I manually refreshed all the pages that I get errors (as the message indicates, refreshing the page fixes the issue for one particular file).
Though, this is just a workaround and the issue still needs to be addressed IMO
@Greenreader9 Thanks. I found & read this article yesterday, upon searching the error message on Google. Then I disabled all the plugins and put the website in maintenance mode - by doing so, I was intending to reduce the usage & was expecting it to get fixed by today. But that wasn’t the case, I ended up manually refreshing all JS files to make the edit page functional
UPDATE: The same thing happens again. All the files I recently refreshed started giving this error again. You can see some of them in the Album page. You’ll see it cannot load some images.
This is a simple WordPress site containing a lightweight theme and some well-known popular plugins. We also don’t get too many visitors, maybe a few each day. I don’t understand why it considers this as a “high usage”
Note: I have listed my plugins and theme in one of the above messages. After posting that message, I deleted WP Forms Lite and Hello Dolly.
So, the up to date list:
Flexible SSL for Cloudflare
Insert Headers and Footers
Page scroll to id
Post Ticker Ultimate
Really Simple SSL

I checked the Album page, and it seems that your code is causing almost 150 images to be downloaded all at the same time. Our servers have rate limiting in place to prevent people (website owners and visitors) from overloading the servers by sending a lot of requests at the same time.
So I’m sorry to say that this is intended behavior.
Please try to restructure the album pages to spread the images across more pages, and/or use image sliders that can lazy load the images as they are being accessed, instead of downloading them all at the same time.
use image sliders that can lazy load the images as they are being accessed
Yeah, the plugin currently doesn’t support lazy loading as we’re using the free version. I’ll look into that if this is the root cause.
I understand if it gets rate limited (which is a different situation than described in the error message) due to this, but the error message is about PHP processes and images are not PHP files, so accessing images should not run any new PHP process? Am I wrong?
One thing I could think of that would possibly work is to combine your images into several big images and then split them apart (on the client’s machine) and load them. Otherwise, using an external image hosting website would be a great idea!
