The reason I recommend you upgrade to 1.4.3 is that 1.1.4 is no
longer supported. It is very old, and numerous problems have been
fixed since then. If you find a bug in 1.1.4, it will not be fixed;
you will be advised to upgrade to a newer version. Perhaps the
problem you are experiencing now is one of ones fixed in newer
versions. I don't know. But upgrading to the latest version is
certainly the first thing I'd try when I encounter a problem with a
software package.

I'm not familiar with the error message you received, so the only
advice I can give is to treat it as if it's telling the truth:
perhaps you really do have too many files open. I do not know what
the limits are on the operating systems you're using. For example, on
Mac OS X 10.3, I believe the limit is about 12,000 files open at
once. On Unix-like operating systems, I believe the "lsof" command
will show you which files are open, and running that through "wc -l"
will count how many files are open. "lsof | wc -l" on my PowerBook G4
shows about 1500 files open. On my MacBook Pro, over 4000 files are
open. How many are open on your server? What's the limit for your
server's operating system? (Consult its documentation.)
