    How large/active is your forum?

    Have you considered switching hosts or upgrading?

    It's not that big... About 70 active users a day.

    In which case I would definitely look at other hosts.

    I was on shared hosting with many more users than that without issue.

    Is 25 processes at a time not enough for xenforo?

    Actually realized that I had a script running in loop for some reason, cheers anyway. :)

    There's at least 6 completely unique users hitting the script within the same second - I suspect you'd find that would be busier than even XenForo.com. If that's not your normal traffic pattern, it could be a burst from being listed on a big site or it could be something like an attack pointed at your forum; you'd likely need to trace through your web server logs for more information.

    It may be that your host has blocked access. As mentioned before, it may be time to consider a different one.
