    Hi,

    after doing lots of updating, apache tends to hang, with the log showing many

    [warn] mod_fcgid: too much processes, please increase FCGID_MAX_APPLICATION​

    System info from Plesk:

    CPU Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1271 v3 @ 3.60GHz (8 core(s))
    Version Plesk Onyx v17.0.17_build1700161028.14 os_Debian 7.0
    OS Debian 7.11​

    This seems to directly address the issue: https://kb.plesk.com/en/130473

    The path seems to be valid for Debian 8 only, though (and not sure about the arch). How can I patch my system?

    Thanks you :)

    Unfortunately not. As I got the license through a reseller, I need to get a support plan first.

    You need to find where your files are in debian, i can only help for centos, but apache is apache, its the same.

    Find fcgid.conf setup in /etc/httpd/conf.d

    Adjust it to your needs, google for what others use and have to say about it. fine-tune over some period of time to see what works the best for your type of websites.

    Ours is

    Code:
    # This is the Apache server configuration file for providing FastCGI support
    # via mod_fcgid
    #
    # Documentation is available at http://fastcgi.coremail.cn/doc.htm
    
    LoadModule fcgid_module modules/mod_fcgid.so
    
    <IfModule mod_fcgid.c>
    
    <IfModule !mod_fastcgi.c>
        AddHandler fcgid-script fcg fcgi fpl
    </IfModule>
    
      FcgidIPCDir /var/run/mod_fcgid/sock
      FcgidProcessTableFile /var/run/mod_fcgid/fcgid_shm
    
    ##FcgidIdleTimeout default = 300
       FcgidIdleTimeout 300
    
    ##FcgidProcessLifeTime default = 3600
    #  FcgidProcessLifeTime 300
    
    ##FcgidMaxProcesses default = 1000
    #  FcgidMaxProcesses 32
    
    ##FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass default = 100
    #  FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass 32
    #  FcgidMinProcessesPerClass 0
      FcgidConnectTimeout 30
      FcgidIOTimeout 300
      FcgidInitialEnv RAILS_ENV production
      FcgidIdleScanInterval 10
      FcgidMaxRequestLen 1073741824
    
    
    </IfModule>
    
    ## = the default, commented if we use the default but left in there to know it
    # = what was originaly there

    save and restart apache.

    You might want to empty /var/run/mod_fcgid/sock/ from time to time, just to clean up.

    AGAIN: these are paths on centos, on debian it might be in an other location.

    hope this helps
    regards

    Thank you - very helpful. I've upped the limit a bit in the conf file and will see if it helps. Not much server load anyway, but only started to happen after the update; so hopefully this fixes the problem.

    Plesk sometimes overwrites fcgid.conf at an update. Simply get your old back from a backup, restart apache and your good to go (till the next update).

    We have monitors in place that mail us when files are changed we don't want changed.

    regards
