actually a bunch of things ... but your issue
is most likely caused by the broken config ...
did you create that with newvserver?
try ULIMIT="-HS -u 1000" and make sure that
your host allows for -u 1000 ...
you should also change the following:
- use a static context id (49152 is dynamic)
- do not use the legacy config files unless
it is a legacy guest (you will lose a lot
of features this way)
