Remove a stray application that is reporting but I don't know why


We launched a Wordpress site on LiquidWeb and enabled New Relic. The site is reporting as the site domain name, but additionally there is a phantom app called, “PHP Application” that is reporting. It barely has any usage. LW says it’s not them, but both the site’s application and this phantom one have the exact same server name. Any suggestions?



Check out the applications settings > Environment, tab. That should tell you more details and what is launching it.


I would definitely suggest looking at the kind of transactions coming in, and are they background transactions. PHP Agent is integrated with PHP in that environment, so if there is some PHP based cronjobs running, they may report and go to the default appname which is PHP Application.
