Issues with MediaTemple + BuddyPress + bbPress
Forum home url: http://netballscoop.com/forums/latest/
Buddypress version: 1.6.4
bbPress: 2.3 beta 2
In the last week, I migrated a forum from phpBB to my bbPress + BuddyPress. I’m currently on the Grid Service MediaTemple hosting plan ($20/month).
Just 7 days into the billing cycle, I’ve already hit 1752 GPUS (we are allowed a maximum of 2000). The projected overage for this month is 1006 – an extra $100 on top of what I’m already paying.
My site has 1250 users, is receiving almost 4000 pageviews/day since implementing the forum.
Wait time is around 3 seconds:
admin-ajax.php seems to be a huge culprit:

“Get mediatemple grid service. It’s $20 a month and will never get shut down. It works fine for less than 5000 users. If you ever get larger they can upgrade you without you having to worry. Stay away from super cheap hosting.”
I’m not sure what the culprit is?
2. BuddyPress and bbPress
3. I have to upgrade my hosting
or something I’ve done wrong?
The previous phpBB forum was running absolutely fine on a host that was just $5/month.
Where am I going wrong? Please help!
