I've tried to fix the "Too many connections problem" following the suggested

I've ran into other seemingly nonsensical errors.

I have a new unused server here where I’m trying to install/use nginx for
php for the first time.

Strange error for unused server?
Firstly, it seems strange to me that I would get “Too many open files” for a
new unused server. ulimit -Hn/Sn showed 4096/1024 which seemed adequate whie
nginx was using only 9/10 acccording to: ls -l /proc//fd | wc -l

Anyhow, I followed the instructions and now I get this error:
2013/02/15 16:30:39 [alert] 4785#0: 1024 worker_connections are not enough
2013/02/15 16:30:39 [error] 4785#0: *1021 recv() failed (104: Connection
reset by peer) while reading response header from upstream, client:, server: localhost, request: “GET /info.php HTTP/1.0″, upstream:
“”, host: “″

I’ve tried increasing the worker_connections to large numbers e.g. 19999 to
no avail.

Any tips?
