How do I limit the number of cgi processes that my web site uses?

On a shared server, if one web site gets a lot of hits, it can adversely affect the other sites on the server.

If you experiencing a denial of service attack or huge number of hits that is causing the server to become sluggish, you can limit the number of processes in use by your web site by editing your Web Configuration via the control panel, adding the following:

FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass 3

Change the number 3 to the number of processes to which you'd like to limit your web site.
