Description h4x0r1f1c 2010-02-11 22:21:33 UTC
On my Centos 5 (32-bit) I have the following configuration.

<IfModule prefork.c>
StartServers 10
MinSpareServers 10
MaxSpareServers 20
ServerLimit 100
MaxClients 100
MaxRequestsPerChild 1000

My problem is that Apache will not make more than 10 processes to accomodate my traffic. I have plenty of RAM for it to do so.

I've even set StartServers/MinSpareServers to 50 and MaxSpareServers to 80. Only 10 were created after restarting to apply the changes.

I have restarted Apache several times and it didn't fix my issue. I've even reinstalled it and my whole machine and setup the configuration manually again.
