Too many open files

Our site is getting busy and we are now getting these errors:

2010/08/30 16:10:47 [alert] 4729#0: accept() failed (24: Too many open
files)

I’ve already looked online in several places but am unclear about how to
more clearly diagnose the problem and correct. Any help as always is
greatly appreciated.

Running: cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max

yields: 800669

Running ulimit

worker_processes 5;

events {
worker_connections 4096;
}

I’ve looked here:

and here:

Running CentOS

Yes, that revealed the cause I think that was set to 1024.
