    http server

    Hey folks,

    Need some help. Our Apache 1.3 web server on our dedicated server hasn't been working correctly for the past three days. It's configured to accept a maximum amount of connections of 400 connections, however, when it reachs between 30-50 connections it stops accepting anymore it seems. The server has been restarted several times without fixing the problem. I am also getting an [httpd] defunct error in my process list, and when I deleted the access_log file and restarted this didn't fix the problem as my google search had suggested.

    Here are the server specs:

    Genuine IBM eSeries Rack Server
    Dual AMD Opteron 242 CPU
    1GB ECC DDR Memory
    80GB 7,200 ATA Disk

    I'm at a total loss here. I don't know what to do, our site requires quick load times and several connections simultaneously at all times. Please help.

    Can you paste some of the configuration paramaters you have inside of your httpd.conf for limiting connections?

    Actually, I figured it out just now. I was looking at /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log, but each of my domains had separate logfiles of their own under the domlogs directory, and one domain had reached the 2 gig limit. I setup a steady log rotation script for all domains and subdomains and now the web server is back to full speed. Thanks for your help.
