Title
I'm getting the error that there are not enough file descriptors.

Summary
I'm getting the error that there are not enough file descriptors.

Prevention


Details
Solution:

To increase the number of file descriptors per process (default is 1024) on the Private Server use the "ulimit" command.

To list all ulimit values:

ulimit -a

To change the number of open file descriptors for the current bash session:

ulimit -n 2056

For the daemon hitting the open file descriptor limit modify its init.d script so each time that daemon is started it gets the new value. So for example edit /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd and add ulimit -n 2056 before httpd is run.
