Can you please post here the url of website where i can find it
mod_boost and MaxClients are values that can be adjusted in httpd.conf on your server.
I would also suggest tweaking up your Apache before concidering other webservers, as I suspect you'll end up with more-less same problem.
I am not 100% sure, but I think you can instruct Apache to send files, if not directly, but then to lower the memory buffer before sending files (like, load 1% of file in memory (which would be like 1 mb, if file is 100MB) and then send it, then load again 1% etc etc etc).
Also take a look at: http ://httpd.apache.org/ docs-2.0/mod/core.html#enablesendfile
(dunno, what files are 'static' nor what files are you offering for download).
And just one suggestion, try (costs nothing
to mail people @tucows, download.com etc to get you started in good direction (will certanly not offer you complete solution, but...)
