Does anyone have any idea how to do this. I installed build-essentials already but am totally lost. I am a linux compile newbie!

I need to change apache to Worker MPM mode, limited to a single process for a messaging app I am working on.

Thanks in advance

Why are you using hardy, out of interest? – Tom O'Connor Oct 27 '10 at 7:37

You don't need to recompile it. Just install apache2-mpm-worker

sudo apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker

And it'll install the correct binaries for you.
