    * Apache (httpd) Fails!

    Hi,

    I am really tensed about the problem of Apache Failure very frequently, whenever there are 150 Connections being processed and CPU Load 1-1.5, Apache (httpd) restarts...

    I am on 2.4 Celeron Processor with 512 RAM , and hosting some downloadable content which is highly downloaded at every moment... so anyone have any idea that why httpd restarts so frequently even after 30 mins when connections are 150...

    Also (For an Idea) the Bandwidth consumption is also such that in 1 hour 1 GB data is being downloaded. So, because i have never experience such issue so don't have any idea on this...

    Try increasing MaxClients in httpd.conf.

    Assuming your using the default config, you can simply run this shell command:

    replace "MaxClients 150" "MaxClients 300" -- /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf;service httpd restart

    Let me know how it goes

    Simply use the shell command I gave you.

    replace "MaxClients 150" "MaxClients 300" -- /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf;service httpd restart
    that would be easier than manually editing it, but if you would like to manually edit it, try using:
    pico /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf

    You may have to use nano instead of pico, because pico isnt an option on some OS anymore.

    That is true but the same can be said about nano - many servers don't actually have nano installed.

    Remember that you must restart Apache for the changes to become effective. You can restart Apache using:
    service httpd restart

    Seems that you don't have enough ram and apache isn't good for serving large files. Also, maybe you have some of script that restart apache when it reaches x load.

    You could use lighttpd to serve those files, heard it's very good.
