Default [SOLVED]FastCGI ignore directive


I have a big problem with FastCGI for php.
I created an another the master file (conf-custom) vhost to change these values :

     # Idle fastcgi will not be killed if their count is less than n
      # Set this to 0, and tweak IdleTimeout
          DefaultMinClassProcessCount 0

          # DefaultMaxClassProcessCount n (100)
      # The maximum number of fastcgi application instances allowed to run for
      # particular one fastcgi application.
      DefaultMaxClassProcessCount 4
I regenerate the vhost's config for my website, everything fine.
Then I used ab to test my server while monitoring it with top.
ab -n500 -c20 http://my-website.com/index.php
Top said that there was 20 php-cgi spawn by apache ... instead of the max I set (4) ...
I tried with FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass (http://httpd.apache.org/mod_fcgid/mo...cessesperclass), make it global in http.conf etc ... every time it's ignored ...

I don't know what to do ... I tried everything I know and every time it's failed ...

I used this tutorial to install my server : http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...nny-ispconfig3 (apache2-mpm-prefork)

Just used aptitude instead of apt-get.

I compiled and added eAccelerator (try with and without nothing change)

Then ... help ...

Edit : wait for the moderator to approve my last post with the solution.

Try to use this variable instead:

MaxProcessCount 4

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

I don't want to block the total of Fcgi child to 4 (already configured to 32).

This param works (just tried before going here) but I have other website on the server with that param the other sites are blocked as the Max is reached ...

And I can't use MaxProcessCount in <virtualhost>

Don't know what to do ...

Okay I found why ...

Because in the last version of mod_fcgi (2.3.6) they change how this param work.

I just goes to their website and find a patch to have the "old way".

Everything is here http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi
A patch is available here for a regression in this release.
Hope it'll help somebody else too.

(just had to install the patch manually, change one line with one other)
