http://serverfault.com – I'm encountering issues on a dedicated Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Apache/2.2.22), PHP 5.3 with APC. Every few hours I see this happen: [Fri Aug 17 15:36:51 2012] [error] server reached MaxClients setting, consider raising the MaxClients setting This causes the server to drop/refuse all connections. When I go to restart apache: [Fri Aug 17 15:38:14 2012] [warn] child process 8946 still did not exit, sending a SIGTERM [Fri Aug 17 15:38:14 2012] [warn] child process 7496 still did not exit, sending a SIGTERM [Fri Aug 17 15:38:16 2012] [warn] child process 8946 still did not exit, sending a SIGTERM (HowTos)
