We are getting this error in the log. We have nowhere maxed resources so I am wanting to adjust the values. I noticed there are no settings for this in the httpd.conf so I was wondering if CWP has these settings stored elsewhere or if I am safe to add them to the httpd.conf.

Thanks.

Already asking about MaxClients

Where is that file to increase MaxClients ?

What values can we set this file with?
Do I need to make settings elsewhere after changing this file?

/usr/local/apache/conf/extra/httpd-mpm.conf

You just need to change the value in the appropriate section (prefork, worker, event) of:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/apache/conf/extra/httpd-mpm.confand then restart Apache.

The value depends on available (free memory). Don't set the value too high. I recommend you to following:

1. Check how much free memory you have;
2. Find the most memory expensive http/apache process;
3. Divide free memory by the RAM usage of the most expensive http/apache process;
4. Divide the result by two.

Don't forget other services eat RAM too :)

I recommend you to check the following guide:
https://www.woktron.com/secure/knowledgebase/133/How-to-optimize-Apache-performance.html

Also, you can use:
Code: [Select]
/scripts/apache_mpm_calculatorto get values recommended by CWP.

Another recommendation is to switch to nginx if you want a more performant web server that consumes less resources than a patchy (apache) web server.

Which option should I enter the values in the calculation?

StartServers                    3
MinSpareThreads              63
MaxSpareThreads             127
ThreadsPerChild               382
ThreadLimit                     382
MaxRequestWorkers         3056
ServerLimit                      3066
MaxConnectionsPerChild    4000

I got into this part. I hope my problem will be fixed.
Do I need to edit anywhere other than here?

<IfModule mpm_event_module>
StartServers              3
MinSpareThreads           63
MaxSpareThreads           127
ThreadsPerChild           382
ThreadLimit               382

ServerLimit               3066
MaxConnectionsPerChild    4000
</IfModule>

Run:

Code: [Select]
/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -V| grep MPM
in shell to find which MPM you use (most likely "event").
