apache 2 MPM.

Post by klabaza » 2013/11/08 00:59:01

Hi.

Guys, reading a little about apache2 MPM modules, we have 2 available in the config file:
prefork
worker
Each one has his stra/wee.

My questions is:

1; How centos/apache decide which one to use if we have both enable?
2; Suppose we decide to focus in 1, is good to disable the other, putting comments at the beggining of each line? do this help apache?

Thanks for your time.

Hello,

In CentOS you choose the MPM to use by editing /etc/sysconfig/httpd.
By default it uses the "prefork" one, if you want to use "worker" stop httpd, uncomment "HTTPD=/usr/sbin/httpd.worker" then start httpd.
