That's an eight-year-old version of a legacy branch. If you don't have a truly excellent reason
for sticking with that, I suggest that you think about upgrading.

StartServers only affects the initial process creation. The number of workers at any time
after that will be determined by other factors including (but not limited to) MaxSpareServers
and MinSpareServers.

correct ?

MaxClients determines the maximum number of simultaneous requests which can be served. If
you have enough RAM to serve 200 simultaneous requests and deal with everything else the OS
will be doing then that would be reasonable, yes.
