max user processes question/problemm


Hello.
First i have a question.
When i do the following with logged in with root:
Code:
su user1
ulimit -a
i get

Code:
core file size          (blocks, -c) 200000
data seg size           (kbytes, -d) 200000
scheduling priority             (-e) 0
file size               (blocks, -f) unlimited
pending signals                 (-i) 8027
max locked memory       (kbytes, -l) 32
max memory size         (kbytes, -m) 200000
open files                      (-n) 100
pipe size            (512 bytes, -p) 8
POSIX message queues     (bytes, -q) 819200
real-time priority              (-r) 0
stack size              (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time               (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes              (-u) 100
virtual memory          (kbytes, -v) 200000
file locks                      (-x) unlimited
When i login with user1 and do ulimit -a
i get
Code:
core file size          (blocks, -c) 200000
data seg size           (kbytes, -d) 200000
scheduling priority             (-e) 0
file size               (blocks, -f) unlimited
pending signals                 (-i) 8027
max locked memory       (kbytes, -l) 32
max memory size         (kbytes, -m) 200000
open files                      (-n) 100
pipe size            (512 bytes, -p) 8
POSIX message queues     (bytes, -q) 819200
real-time priority              (-r) 0
stack size              (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time               (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes              (-u) 20
virtual memory          (kbytes, -v) 200000
file locks                      (-x) unlimited
Why is the max user processes different for the same user?
And how can i change this. I need for this user more then 20 processes...

I hope you can explain and help me with it.

That's because
Code:
su user
logs you in as target user, but with orig/src user's env.
To get target user's env, you need
Code:
su - user

Yes indeed. I see now that the max users processes are the samen.
I both cases they are 20.

But how can i make them higher?


Edit: Problem is solved. It was a cPanel problemm. I had to disable fork shell protection
