Subject Re: [users@httpd] Restart or Reload after changing MaxClients and ServerLimit
Date Sun, 24 Apr 2016 18:52:39 GMT
Hello,

While reloading httpd did increase MaxClients to 400 as specified, it did
not increase ServerLimit to 400 as specified.  What is worse is that since
ServerLimit remained at 256, this caused MaxClients to be reduced to 256
since ServerLimit seems to be the hard limit for MaxClients.

Even more frustrating is that when I did a service httpd restart, it not
only did not increase ServerLimit to 400, but it threw an error that the
attempt to increase ServerLimit during a restart was ignored.

Any ideas why I cannot increase the ServerLimit?

Thanks,

Laurence Cohen
