 A Day in the Life of #Apache

"On Apache 1.3, Apache runs in what is called a prefork model. There's one Apache parent process, and several child processes, each of which can answer incoming HTTP requests. Lots of people like the prefork model, but some people want choices. Choices are good. So, in Apache 2, you have choices. These choices are called MPMs, because they represent different models of multi-processing. If you like prefork, then use the prefork MPM. There's also worker, which is threaded. And there are a variety of other ones, including ones that are specifically for non-Unix operating systems, such as mpm_winnt and mpm_netware for Netware."
