    I get this when signing into a clients shell account (he does too obviously):
    bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

    I can't figure out whats wrong but I have tried re-enabling shell for him. It works fine in jail shell, but not in normal.

    Any ideas?
    Supposedly he was installing something and it hanged. So it exited.

    Go on, have a guess
    Looping processes, most likely.

    Login as root and do a:

    ps axf

    Have a look for ones owned by the username. You'll probably have to kill them off.

    The error indicates that that username has reached the maximum number of processes allowed to run under a specific username, or, it's eaten up so many that it's hit the server max. I'd suspect the former.

    Hello,

    How can you increase the number of processes allowed by a user?

    Replied in the other thread that you asked the exact same question.
