    Hi,

    On my Centmin server this command is running all the time. Is this something normal? How do I stop these if it's not normal?

    I think its from cron. You can disable the cron.

    If you have used centmin.sh menu option 22 to create Wordpress Nginx site, it automatically adds a cronjob to auto update Wordpress plugins every 8hrs and one of the commands is wp plugin status check.

    cronjob listing with grep filter on Wordpress updater scripts will show you each auto added cronjob entry
    Code (Text):
    crontab -l | grep 'wp_updater'


    It should end running after cronjob finishes. But looks like yours has issues terminating and/or you have many Wordpress installs and all their cronjobs are running (as expected) - just you have a lot of Wordpress installs?

    You can try running this command to kill those processes. But you still probably need to find out why they aren't ending

    Code (Text):
    kill -9 $(ps aufxww | grep 'wp plugin status' | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}')
