We have a error on our site that is sending 3000 PHP API requests to an external IP address which we use to automate invoicing. This huge amount of requests is crashing our server and we need it resolved so that only the correct requests are being sent at the correct times.
We have worked with malware specialists and it is not malware, but a PHP script error. This script is crashing our server.
The site is in php codeignitor.
I think this is the error that is crashing our server because it is overloading it:
I think (and could be wrong) process that is running and crashing the server:
mysql 1144 4.4 1.7 140460 27064 ? Sl 15:41 0:11 \_ /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/ --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql --log-error=/var/lib/mysql/[url removed, login to view] --open-files-limit=2174 --pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/[url removed, login to view]
We need this urgently fixed!
