I have a strange situation with apache2. Meanless, random 403 errors. Any page (html, php etc.) normally working. but if i request repeatedly by pressing refresh button of browser. it interrupts & sends a 403 randomly. after a few seconds it works again.
in the error log, i see
client denied by server configuration.
main error log of apache says
[info] server seems busy, (you may need to increase StartServers, or Min/MaxSpareServers), spawning 8 children, there are 99 idle, and 137 total children
my current values
i've increased 10 by 10. from 20. but nothing solved. i've disabled KeepAlive.
What may cause this problem ?
thank you in advance.
