I think that's the other way around:  "How many connections can a busy 
server handle?"

And to answer that, it depends entirely on the type of system that yo 
uare running.  I've had Apache doing over 1,000 simultaneous connections 
without a sweat, on an AMD Sempron 2400 w/1G RAM and U166 SCSI disks, 
with some slight modification.

So I think a better question would be "How many connections can my 
server handle?  It is a xxx yyy zzz".  With that, we can better help 
you.  YOu can also find many benchmark reports with a quick google, and 
you will find that Apache is a very robust server.
