Subject [users@httpd] server limit stuck at 10
Date Wed, 20 Apr 2011 03:04:21 GMT
I have an unmanaged site,, running CentOS.  The
ServerLimt seems to be stuck at 10.  This works OK when most of the
people in China a asleep, but...

WARNING: MaxClients of 256 exceeds ServerLimit value of 10 servers,
 lowering MaxClients to 10.  To increase, please see the ServerLimit

 during restart
[Tue Apr 19 09:37:51 2011] [notice] Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) configured -- resuming
 normal operations

After the reboot of Apache, I get this

[root@server1 httpd]# ps -e |grep httpd |wc
     11      44     330

And I can't get the site on my browser.

[root@server1 httpd]# httpd -t
Syntax OK
[root@server1 httpd]# httpd -l
Compiled in modules:

Here is the prefork section of httpd.conf

<IfModule prefork.c>
StartServers      8
MinSpareServers    5
MaxSpareServers   20
ServerLimit      256
MaxClients       256
MaxRequestsPerChild  150

I have re-installed apache and tried it with the default httpd.conf,
and I still have the same problem.
