    [Thu Aug 11 07:11:20 2005] [error] server reached MaxClients setting, consider raising the MaxClients setting

    I started gettting this yesterday and it's been fairly persistent. I raised the MaxClients settings by 150 and it still crashes and in a hurry.

    looking over the Apache status in WHM I have many lines like this:

    You'll have to patch all Php based applications such as: PhpBB, osTicket, and PhpNuke. Overall, you need to secure your server and stop these hackers/spammers from using your server as a weapon.
