Not sure if the current httpd.conf cpanel setup default can handle this many hits? Does it?

Equally important is what sort of site is it. If the pages are static then you can serve a great many more than if they are dynamic php/cgi pages.

If you need to serve a *lot* of static files and you should look at running an alternative web server as apache is really pretty bad in terms of performance. We have had excellent results with thttpd:

Even if you use thttpd to serve the images and apache to do the php/cgi stuff you will save you a huge amount of memory and cpu over apache alone.

Right, I understand that, but I just wanted to know so I can prepare for my customers. What time period? Does it mater? Who cares, if it means so much, 1 year, 6 months, whatever. exclude the server specs as well, I wouldn't ask this question if I was running a celeron 1.2ghz with 256mb...

I just wanted to know the default cpanel settings, can it handle 1 million hits?

I think you mean 1 milliom hits at once, which if im correct would be impossible to get from just one site. Your woud need a datacentres worth of Servers to have 1 million hits at a time.

If you mean overal depends on how quickly them million hits come next to each other.

again, besides the fact that I need or don't need this type of equipment, this and that... Say i do have a DC, 5 if it floats your boat... can the default cPanel settings give me accumulative hits to 1 million per month...

well, you're asking if cpanel could limit the amount of hits /month, but you're forgetting that cpanel runs on ONE server. If it were a limit issue, would be solved by running MORE servers, therefore the questions asked by the other forum members.

To give a vague answer to your vague question, YES, you can accumulate 1 million hits /month using cpanel.

No, I didnt forget that cpane runs and will run on one server... And yes, my question is very vague, which was not stated for that very reason. I know what I want/need to do, I just thought I want to see what you guys are thinking and recommendations in regards to cPanel defaults setting inside httpd.conf, esp the max user access, etc....

Basically, what else do I need to do to enhance my httpd.conf to allow this type of traffic, if cPanel hasn't done already so...

traffic will be at 1 month, 1 million hits...

As has been stated there is more to it than just httpd.conf configuration. Page sizes, images, databases, etc... all need to be taken into account. There is no default yes/no answer.
