Re: ulimit for mysql and www-data

  I had the same problem (with apache) , and found that the best way is to
ulimit -n 32000
ulimit -u 2048
at the begining of /etc/init.d/apache
And I think that is the best way to do it.

sometning like /etc/rc.boot/ulimit_optimize possibly won't work, because
limits are inherited through fork() , and to execute your script, the init
fork()s,exec() your script,the parent waits for the end of it's
execution, and then continues, so he shouldn't see the change in the

(sorry for my rusty english :) )
