Thank you very much for your concern.
I 'll try raising numbers. But, Why i used *? because the server is web
hosting server and each user has his own group name.
Now, do you have any idea about restricting such situation? Does * mean
restrict root also or just all users except root?
Do you know any -simple- guide for limits.conf?
Thank you very much
