No problem.

Look into the number of busy httpd servers, that might be your problem
(and why it's not accepting any new connections). To do that you can
use a configured URL in Apache (I believe it is /server-status) or you
can at least estimate using "ps" and comparing with the settings for
maximum number of servers in your httpd.conf.
