Apache Performance Tuning via MPM Directives

This guide will help you to configure #MPM directives in the #Apache server. You can simply configure MPM #directives by logging into the server and create an optimization file and add the necessary directive change. 

Starting with Apache 2.0, Apache extended its features with a selection of Multi-Processing Modules (#MPMs), which are responsible for binding to #network ports on the machine, accepting and handling the requests. These modules determine the basis of how Apache addresses multi-processing.

To know which MPM Apache is using:

1. Enable Apache mod_info.

2. Query the mod_info url, typically curl localhost/server-info.

3. The "Server Settings" section will show "MPM Name: #Worker"

4. Run httpd -V again. It will still show prefork, not worker.
