This s sthe ispconfig interface, but I've never seen that it used that much cpu. Please check your server with rkhunter and chkrootkit.

Still have this problem.
100% CPU usage
Help only ispconfig_server restart!

Please help!

I guess you had a old phpmyadmin version installed, there had been a few hacked servers trough this some months ago. This allowed the hackers to run some scripts on the ispconfig httpd server as phpmyadmin runs on the same httpd.

To fix this, I recommend that you do this:

1) stop ispconfig:

/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server stop

2) Move the ispconfig folder to another place:

mv /home/admispconfig/ispconfig /home/admispconfig/ispconfig_old

3) copy back the ispconfig config file:

mkdir -p /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib
cp -prf /home/admispconfig/ispconfig_old/lib/ /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/

4) Download the latest ISPConfig 2 release (2.2.35), unpack it and run the setup script. This will update ispconfig and recreate the contents in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig

Thank you!

I will try this.
But now I have 2.2.35 version.
After reinstall I feedback you.

Big thnks!
