This morning, our server ( went down and I can't figure
out why.  The Nginx log file has this error in it (all over the place and is

2009/01/13 10:07:24 [alert] 26159#0: accept() failed (24: Too many open
files) while accepting new connection on

Which of course follows up with endless:

2009/01/13 10:14:56 [error] 26159#0: *13007 upstream timed out (110:
Connection timed out) while connecting to upstream, client:,
server:, request: "GET / HTTP/1.0", upstream:
"fastcgi://", host: ""
