Question Apache won't start: "Too many files error"?

Hi All,



I suddenly have a strange Apache error. I'm on Fedora Core 5 test server using ISPConfig 2.3.1-dev.

Apache (httpd) went down about 2 hours ago. I tried the typical /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart command, and noticed that apache reported "failure" for both stopping and starting httpd.

I had a look at my error log: /var/log/httpd/error_log and noticed the following error:

Code:
piped_log_spawn: unable to setup child process '/root/ispconfig/cronolog --symlink=/var/log/httpd/ispconfig_access_log /var/log/httpd/ispconfig_access_log_%Y_%m_%d': Too many open files
Unable to open logs

I haven't changed httpd.conf!

Also, please note that ISPconfig's apache loads fine and ISPConfig is accessible from the web.

My server is under a heavy load at the moment, but I have never had issues with Apache in the past when putting the server under load...



Any ideas? Thanks.........
