My web host only provides 64-bit OS, but the 64-bit Apache webservers take too much memory and occasionally lead to thrashing, under not too much external load.
Is there any way to configure Apache to use less memory, or do you suggest any other configuration?
My server has 256MB RAM and runs one wordpress and two other subdomains with static pages.
Current Apache process configs as shown by Webmin are:-
Min processes: 10
Max processes: 15
Initial startup processes count: 8
Max simultaneous connections per process: 4000
Update:- Right now I see 11 Apache processes running each taking about 360MB of RAM on my 256MB system!
