    Hi all,

    Does anybody know what is the maximal number of vhosts/subdomains that ISPConfig can manage.

    One of the hosting solution uses piped apache logs to make the limits to 900 domains.

    Can one host, let's say, server 5000 vhosts ?

    I know that Apache by default can handle only 1024 file descriptors and after that it has to be recompiled.

    Does ISP Config have a workaround solution ?

    Update:
    It seems log files can be combined. That's pretty cool.

    The Limit is your hardware and maybe some limits compiled in apache but not ispconfig. ISPConfog would be able to handle a million vhosts, but your hardware will most likely not be able to server the pages.

    ISPConfig uses vlogger for logging and not a access log file per site.
