I am running CentOS 5.3, from what I know default limits for standard users
file is 200000

Anyways to make sure I edited /etc/passwd to

So I could login as apache (I set niginx.conf as user  apache apache;)

and then as root typed
[root at firewall2 ~]# su apache

and then as apache typed
core file size          (blocks, -c) 0
data seg size           (kbytes, -d) unlimited
scheduling priority             (-e) 0
file size               (blocks, -f) unlimited
pending signals                 (-i) 77824
max locked memory       (kbytes, -l) 32
max memory size         (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files                      (-n) 200000
pipe size            (512 bytes, -p) 8
POSIX message queues     (bytes, -q) 819200
real-time priority              (-r) 0
stack size              (kbytes, -s) 10240
cpu time               (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes              (-u) 77824
virtual memory          (kbytes, -v) unlimited
file locks                      (-x) unlimited

Is there any reason I still should bump into file limits?
