I'm running a MacOS Xserve using a Tenon apache/php build. I've noticed that once maxclients is reached, I start getting errors like 'Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /Library/Tenon/WebServer/Documents/'

Our server hosts 100+ websites and each are configured using their own vhost file, but Tenon has a default 'DocumentRoot /Library/Tenon/WebServer/Documents'.

Would reaching maxclients interfere with being able to properly parse vhosts?

I think I figured out why this was happening. See Proper way to disable Apache listening on localhost for an explanation and further question
