I'm having a problem with my production web server.
When I start apache with the command:
/usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl -D SSL -k start
This problem doesn't happen if I start apache with the command:
Then the open file handles get out of control and then my hosting company (verio) shuts the site down.
You can check the open file handles as user root with the command:
/usr/sbin/lsof | wc -l
I need an expert to help me fix this today. I'll give ssh access to the person I chose to fix the problem.
