    Ok guys, here's the problem:

    this morning I added a new account on one of our servers. Everything went fine, apache restarted without a problem but after that all of the sites on the server were down.

    So I deleted that new account again, restarted apache and all sites were back up.

    Now it seems I can't add a new account on the box anymore unless I delete another account, so there must be a limit somewhere. Even adding a subdomain goes wrong, which means that when one of our customers adds a subdomain all sites will go down after apache restarts.

    To prevent this I've deleted some inactive accounts on the server. But of course that's only a temp. solution.

    So my question now is: can I change the maximum number of accounts/sites/domains somewhere? I've looked in httpd.conf but couldn't find anything related to that.

    These are the current # of domains on that box:

    # of Users 390
    # of Domains 585
    # of SubDomains 420

    Thanks in advance.

    Go on, have a guess
    I'm not aware of any limit at all. When you say that apache wouldn't start, what exactly were the errors are what was shown in the apache error_log when you tried to start it?
