How do I update my max clients setting?

To update your max clients setting using SSH:

  1. Connect to your server via SSH (more info).
  2. Switch to the root user (more info).
  3. Open /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf in your text editor. (We recommend "vi." At the command line, type vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf).
  4. Change the setting "MaxClients 10" to a larger number.

    Note: You must modify both max clients entries.

  5. Save and close httpd.conf.
