comment Windows 2008 Server VM stops responding to network connections
FYI, this question was closed one day after I updated it to reflect that I narrowed it down to a Windows 2008 Server Firewall configuration issue. I'm assuming it was closed because I was previously looking into it as a VirtualBox issue? I don't see how a Windows 2008 Server issue would be off topic. Does the question remain off topic in its current iteration? (I'm not asking for it to be reopened..)

I updated the question to reflect that VirtualBox isn't actually the problem here -- Windows 2008 Server has decided to play games with me...

comment Windows 2008 Server VM stops responding to network connections
While it's nice to think about overhauling the infrastructure here, unfortunately I don't have the resources to perform a migration right now just to get this working again. We have 3 users and the services are lightly used. It's been working fine (zero problems) for 1 year in the current configuration and it was on another host machine for the 3 years preceding that, also with zero problems until the host machine hardware failed.

comment How do I tell if apache is running as prefork or worker?
I confirmed via the apache documentation at httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mpm.html that MPMs can be built as DSO modules and dynamically loaded with the LoadModule directive, on "Unix and similar platforms". So the MPM can indeed be changed at load time under certain circumstances (which might be the most common configuration these days..)

comment How do I tell if apache is running as prefork or worker?
FYI, according to httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mpm.html the MPM can be a static module on all platforms, or built as a DSO (on Unix). When it is built as a static module, "The server must be rebuilt in order to change the MPM." Is the apache documentation incorrect about the static module MPM being unchangeable except by rebuilding the server?

@ChrisJohnson, interesting discovery... My understanding was that the MPM could not be changed by configuration, only by compilation. It seems the OP thought the same, since he commented on his question with "or more technically 'compiled to run as'". I'll look into reproducing your answer and once I've confirmed it I'll revoke mine.
