Hey all, for some reason user 'apache' is stopped from running over a certain number of processes even though i've set that user's maxproc to unlimited.
Heres a snippet from my /etc/login.conf
Code:
default:\
        :passwd_format=md5:\
        :copyright=/etc/COPYRIGHT:\
        :welcome=/etc/motd:\
        :setenv=MAIL=/var/mail/$,BLOCKSIZE=K,FTP_PASSIVE_MODE=YES:\
        :path=/sbin /bin /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/games /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/bin /usr/X11R6/bin ~/bin:\
        :nologin=/var/run/nologin:\
        :cputime=unlimited:\
        :datasize=unlimited:\
        :stacksize=unlimited:\
        :memorylocked=unlimited:\
        :memoryuse=unlimited:\
        :filesize=unlimited:\
        :coredumpsize=unlimited:\
        :openfiles=unlimited:\
        :maxproc=20:\
        :sbsize=unlimited:\
        :vmemoryuse=unlimited:\
        :priority=0:\
        :ignoretime@:\
        :umask=022:

apache:\
        :maxproc=unlimited:
I keep seeing this in /var/log/messages;
Code:
kernel: maxproc limit exceeded by uid 1004, please see tuning(7) and login.conf(5).
My kern.maxproc and kern.maxprocperuid are both over 5000 so i can't see what the problem is here, does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Chris
