My Apache2 sometimes gets really slow.. Looking at the log file it's showing server reached MaxClient settings, consider raising the MaxClients setting at the times apache is slow, so I guess that this is causing the slowdown. After some googling I found this. The problem now is that I do not have MaxClients in the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf , but I do have it in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf In apache2.conf I have to times a MaxClients! Code: <IfModule prefork.c> StartServers 50 MinSpareServers 50 MaxSpareServers 200 MaxClients 256 MaxRequestsPerChild 1 </IfModule> <IfModule worker.c> StartServers 2 MaxClients 150 MinSpareThreads 25 MaxSpareThreads 75 ThreadsPerChild 25 MaxRequestsPerChild 0 </IfModule> Do I need to set both MaxClients, or do I need to add a MaxClients to the httpd.conf? Also. The server (Debain Sarge 3.1) has 4GB of memory.. Will a MacClients of lets say 1000 be okay?
