This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

The message you get is a message from your server. Please consult your servers manual first to understand what it means. Additionally please consider using a server support forum first, like serverfault. – hakre Feb 15 '11 at 10:02
This is quite clearly from the title asking what sort of Apache tuning should be done specifically for Wordpress. That is specific enough to belong on wordpress.stackexchange.com IMHO. Send it back where people with more experience relating to Wordpress may be hanging out. – dunxd Feb 15 '11 at 13:13

Have a read through this site: Optimize Apache for WordPress

You can try lowering the file size in the admin panel for PHP and if that does not work try it in the wp-config.php file.
