Redhat linux 2.2.19-7.0.1, gcc compiler, Apache version 1.3.12
Compaq ProLiant ML330 Single Pentium 3 with a gig of ram.
each apache process is opening 150+ files multiplied by 60-80 connections. Most of the file
are log files for virtual hosts. Apache will continue to grab file descriptors no matter how
high I set file-max in linux and it never releases them, so I am constanly running out of
files and have to reboot.
Is there a fix for this, it is killing our web site. Is it possible not to log for virtal
host?? If this is possible I can remove the logging entries as a temp solution. Still the
big problem is Apache needs to release the files when there are not many processes running,
else I will continue to have this issue and need to reboot daily which is not acceptable.
Doesn't show a problem on URLS. Errors show up on the system itself. OR the machine slows
  to a crawl and needs to be booted.
I have tried increasing max-files and max-inodes etc... , but that just gives me an extra
day before Apache eats all the file descriptors up and I have to boot.
