apache-mpm-worker - Implements a hybrid multi-threaded multi-process web server (experimental)
This Multi-Processing Module (MPM) implements a hybrid multi-process
multi-threaded server. By using threads to serve requests, it is able to serve
a large number of requests with less system resources than a process-based
server. Yet it retains much of the stability of a process-based server by
keeping multiple processes available, each with many threads.
The most important directives used to control this MPM are ThreadsPerChild,
which controls the number of threads deployed by each child process and
MaxClients, which controls the maximum total number of threads that may be
This package contains the main binary of apache, a powerful, full-featured,
efficient and freely-available Web server. Apache is also the most popular Web
server on the Internet.
This version of apache is fully modular, and many modules are available in
pre-compiled formats, like PHP and mod_auth_external.
This package defaults to a maximum of 128 dynamically loadable modules.
You can change these values at RPM build time by using for example:
--define 'maxmodules 512'
The package was built to support a maximum of 128 dynamically loadable modules.

Note that the worker mpm (this package) requires thread safe modules. This
package is totally experimental and may not be stable or suitable at any time,
in any way, or for any kind production usage. Be warned. You must manually
add HTTPD="/usr/sbin/httpd-worker" in the /etc/sysconfig/httpd configuration
file to be able to use this MPM.
