There can be only one! - Connor MacLeod --- Of course you probably really want to know how to control the number of processes. –  Zoredache Dec 2 '09 at 8:52

Say what now?

Prefork is non-threaded.

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/prefork.html

If you mean the number of child processes, then yes, you can set certain directives to regulatehow the parent process manages these.

Are you having any particular (performance, or otherwise) issues that might lead you to believe you need to change these settings?

I would bet he is looking for the MaxClients directive which sets the maximum number of child processes that will be launched. –  Zoredache Dec 2 '09 at 8:55
