Hi @AlexDicant,

It seems your ApacheWorkers and ApacheMaxConnections limit is 200. When you reach that number any other person that tries to open the website gets in a queue which is presented by your website just spinning and waiting to open.

You should be able to edit this configuration in your Apache2 folder in /etc/apache2. Once you change it, just remember to restart Apache2.

Oh, one last thing, make sure your MaxConnections are a higher number than your ApacheWorkers.
