Hi,

I am on a VPS.

When I try to restart Apache, I get this error:

service httpd restart
WARNING: MaxClients of 64 exceeds ServerLimit value of 8 servers,
 lowering MaxClients to 8.  To increase, please see the ServerLimit
 directive.
[Fri Oct 03 07:54:53 2014] [warn] NameVirtualHost x.x.x.x:443 has no VirtualHosts

Check your httpd.conf file to see if it specifies a 'ServerLimit'.  Increase the ServerLimit to 64 if needed and then restart apache.

Will that be a problem on my host? I have a vps and don't want problems.

What is the server limit tag and what does it do?

If you have a VPS and your monthly amount includes support from the provider then I suggest that you raise a ticket with them to confirm the issue.  I imagine it is an issue with your host but if you pay support then they will advise or fix the issue for you.  If you're not confident with editing the config files then I would leave it to your hosting provider.

Your apache will restart anyway
WARN and WARNING are non-fatal errors.
It just tells apache will serve 8 connections at a time (4 users browsing site at a time)

If you identify your linux (e.g Debian or CentOS) I could tell where to get apache confiiguration right
