-U n means the service will die after it services n connections.
-T n means the service will die after waiting n seconds for a connection
(i.e. without any work to do).

If you want it to run 24/7, drop the -U and -T. And don't prefork 5 of
them if you want just one of them active.
And -T + prefork means your system will be killing and respawning processes
every n minutes, as all preforked processes die and are immediately
