Soft limit is the default limit set when a user session starts and can be increased up to the the hard limit using ulimit. The hard limit is the absolute limit.

In you case both are the same so the value has a fixed maximum from the outset.

a2enconf, a2disconf - enable or disable an apache2 configuration file SYNOPSIS
a2enconf [ [-q|--quiet] configuration] a2disconf [ [-q|--quiet] configuration] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the a2enconf and a2disconf commands. a2enconf is a script that enables the specified configuration file within the apache2 configuration. It does this by creating symlinks within /etc/apache2/conf-enabled. Likewise, a2disconf disables a specific configuration part by removing those symlinks. It is not an error to enable a configuration which is already enabled, or to disable one which is already disabled. Note that many configuration file may have a dependency to specific modules. Unlike module dependencies, these are not resolved automati- cally. Configuration fragments stored in the conf-available directory are considered non-essential or being installed and manged by reverse dependencies (e.g. web scripts). OPTIONS
-q, --quiet Don't show informative messages. -m, --maintmode Enables the maintainer mode, that is the program invocation is effectuated automatically by a maintainer script. This switch should not be used by end users. -p, --purge When disabling a module, purge all traces of the module in the internal state data base. EXIT STATUS
a2enconf and a2disconf exit with status 0 if all configurations are processed successfully, 1 if errors occur, 2 if an invalid option was used. EXAMPLES
a2enconf security a2disconf charset Enables Apache security directives stored in the security configuration files, and disables the charset configuration. FILES
/etc/apache2/conf-available Directory with files giving information on available configuration files. /etc/apache2/conf-enabled Directory with links to the files in conf-available for enabled configuration files. SEE ALSO
apache2ctl(8), a2enmod(8), a2dismod(8). AUTHOR
This manual page was written by Arno Toell <debian@toell.net> for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution, as it is a Debian-specific script with the package. 14 February 2012 A2ENCONF(8)
