Ghost Update 0.11.5 Fixes High CPU Spikes

From the moment this article was written, I can confirm that the update 0.11.5 for Ghost has successfully fixed the high CPU spikes I was seeing.

A Bit of Background Information…

I am on a premium, with shared hosting package with unlimited bandwidth, but limited CPU, physical memory, and number of processes resources. I installed Ghost using Cpanel, which I know it’s not one of the recommended methods.

The Full Story…

A few days ago, I decided to take the Ghost blogging platform for a spin.I was seduced by the clean, yet elegant interface that overall provided a distraction free experience. I will admit, I was first intimidated by the new and foreign concept and even overwhelmed, but that was the least of my worries. Just yesterday, I tracked down a high CPU spike of 75% and it was related to my Ghost blog installation. Once the software was removed, processes and CPU went back to normal. I must admit, I was disappointed to say the least.


So what made me return if Ghost is such a monster to my resources? Simple. The promise of a new update. Ghost is still relatively new, and rough around the edges. Like any software, it still needs to be polished, and deserves a fair chance. As of right now, the 0.11.5 update seems to have fixed the high CPU spike I was seeing, even when installing ghost from scratch. Needless to say, I am excited to begin blogging, and discovering all Ghost has to offer.
