------- Additional Comments From jorton@redhat.com  2006-09-05 12:36 -------
The use of ulimit -n in apachectl is certainly broken, I agree.  It is only
supposed to be used if the configure script detects that "ulimit" is tested to
be OK to use the assumption that the configure script runs under /bin/sh has not
been valid for a long long time.  An alternative "fix" for that would be to use
@CONFIG_SHELL@ in the apachectl.in hashbang line rather than hard-coding /bin/sh.

But IMO apachectl should not attempt to workaround system misconfiguration like
this, it is doomed to failure and doomed to be break in interesting ways in
unanticipated circumstances.  It's entirely silly given that httpd-as-root can
bump limits directly via setrlimit(2) anyway without having to mess with
shell-specific stuff.

There are some other PRs on specific ulimit -n issues which could be reopened,
or you could open a new one.
