Is that the norm for normal virtual private hosting to have the maxclients set at 5?
Just to double confirm Maxclients means users..
USers mean browsers/surfers/robots?

So if 5 people concurrently connect to mysite at that particular moment/second/instant.

My site wont load right?

Here's a quote from: httpd.apache.org

The MaxClients directive sets the limit on the number of simultaneous requests that will be served. Any connection attempts over the MaxClients limit will normally be queued, up to a number based on the ListenBacklog directive. Once a child process is freed at the end of a different request, the connection will then be serviced.

This seems to suggest that if more that 6 clients try to connect to your site at the same time, they will just experience a slight delay while the other users are served.

Thanks Elijah, didn't read the whole passage I guess :)

No wonder I experience a slight delay often times. Then I guess I need to up the tempo, but it will use more RAM as I read. So if I up the MAx to maybe 20 I wonder if it would crash the system if the RAM aint enough.
