The following is a segment from a current Apache installation I'm attempting to decipher for bad performance. I noticed the below, both uncommented:
<IfModule mpm_prefork_module> StartServers 5 MinSpareServers 5 MaxSpareServers 10 MaxClients 200 MaxRequestsPerChild 0 </IfModule> <IfModule mpm_worker_module> StartServers 2 MaxClients 150 MinSpareThreads 25 MaxSpareThreads 75 ThreadsPerChild 25 MaxRequestsPerChild 0 </IfModule>
When prefork and worker are both defined, what happens? We're using PHP, so I assume that prefork would be what we want.
