Server load mysterious problem
I'm facing a very mysterious problem
My forum has 1000-1200 visitor and 50-60 posts per day and 4 commonly used plugins that are up to date installed on the forum. Also, mybb is up to date (version 1.6.9). CloudFlare is enabled for my domain.

It has normal server load but when problem occurs entry processes goes very high and site gets unreachable and this problem continues until I set chmod permission of plugins folder to 0000.

Plugins are:

I'd contacted my host support department and they said:

I don't know whether this is an attack or a bug. Can you help me about this?

RE: Server load mysterious problem
Id say its cloudflare. Never liked it, anytime I ver used it, it slowed my sites up something horrid.

RE: Server load mysterious problem
So you recommend to de-active cloudflare?

Yes I sure do. I can assure you that you will notice a difference. It may take up to 72 hours for the DNS to resolve, so don't expect an instant improvement.

Do you recommend using CloudFlare 'Railgun' technology?

RE: Server load mysterious problem
I don't know anything about railgun to be honest. Has your server load improved since you removed cloudflare ?

RE: Server load mysterious problem
I hadn't feel any difference in performance but spammer bots registration were reduced.

Just one month later than previous issue, I'm facing this issue again, even though I'd disabled CloudFlare service completely.
I'm really confused, the only solution is to chmod plugins directory to 0000 or else entry process reaches its limit and site goes unreachable (at first entry process reached its limit 475 times in two hours!)

RE: Server load mysterious problem
I'd upgraded my hosting plan to another server business plan, but still facing the problem.
I don't know what should I do to solve the issue

You host should be able to pinpoint this issue. Is your host refusing to help you ?
