    You can visit the site at http://www.star104.net and see how slow it loads right now during one of our peak hours.

    Increase MaxClients to 250, increase MinSpareServers to 10, increase MaxSpareServers to 20, increase start servers to 5, decrease KeapAliveTimout to 3, and restart apache. If this still does not help, you may want to look into increasing your RAM.
