What's weird is, this is a new problem when the server has always had more than 175 users. This is with the latest Apache/PHP install as provided by custombuild, running on a FreeBSD 6.4-STABLE machine.

Basically, we were forced to comment out some Includes in /var/httpd/conf/extra/directadmin-vhosts.conf to get them down to 175. We can comment any of them out, it makes no difference on the order or which accounts.

Once that happens, Apache loads and everything is fine, I can then manually go in and uncomment the rest of the Include's, and issue a reload to apache and the rest come up, however if/when a restart is issued it will crash apache entirely.

My first guess was increase some kernel limits such as maxusers, maxfiles, and maxfilesperproc. I did this significantly but still no change.

I am stumped as to what it could be. If anyone has any ideas, I'd be curious to hear them.

Are any logs produced when you try to start apache with more than 175 users?
