Thanks Daniel, that sounds about right. I'll see if my host will up the number of workers.
I don't currently have access to the httpd.conf  I'm afraid, although I might have to ask
for a copy of it sending.

Thanks again, and have yourself a good weekend.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but, I am trying to diagnose why my website keeps falling
over often by reaching MAXCLIENTS.
    I have asked the server host to give me access to server-status ( MOD_STATUS ) and one
thing that I have noticed that is different to ALL the other examples I have seen is the size
of the line of W's and R's and C's etc.
    Mine has only 10 characters but every other example seems to have 40+.

    I understand that if they all get stuck in the W state that this may cause the MAXCLIENTS
to get reached so that's something I am watching out for, however I was wondering if the small
size of "child servers" shown might indicate something in itself?

    Many thanks for any help you can offer or point me to!

  I may be speaking out of school here, but I believe that means you have too few workers.
Do you have access to your httpd.conf?

  The code for mod status simply iterates through the server_limit x thread_limit and prints
a character for each.
