hello does anybody knows how to remove Apache to server maximum concurrent connections ? somebody told me that internal server error 500 is actually due to the maximum user processes set by default by cPanel. By Default, cPanel sets the maximum user process to 25 . all my websites are down due to internal server error . i think if i remove Apache to server maximum concurrent connections this problem will be resolved . please help me in this urgent problem

thank you

Try these settings for apache :

Keep and eye on the server load after you make these changes. Dont forget to run the apache distiller /usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller
