I'm trying to set properly an apache installation on an aws instance EC2 m3 Large (with 7.5 Gio or RAM).
Once or twice a week, apache crash with the message: [Thu Aug 14 12:38:33.552250 2014] [mpm_prefork:error] [pid 6279] AH00161: server reached MaxRequestWorkers setting, consider raising the MaxRequestWorkers setting
My question is, how should I set my httpd.conf ?
For now, I always have at least 4.5 Gio RAM free.
I would like to use my hardware the best I can and to prevent apache to chrash suddenly.
Here are my apache settings:
<IfModule mpm_prefork_module> StartServers 20 MinSpareServers 15 MaxSpareServers 30 MaxRequestWorkers 80 MaxConnectionsPerChild 1000 </IfModule> KeepAlive On KeepAliveTimeout 2 MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
My request are average 25Mb and I allow php to do post for 125 Mb
Is there someone who can advise me?
