Include points to a directory, rather than a file,
+Apache will read all files in that directory, and any subdirectory,
+and parse those as configuration files.
The Keep-Alive extension to HTTP/1.0 and the persistent connection
HTTP/1.1 provide long-lived HTTP sessions
+which allow multiple requests to be sent over the same TCP connection.
+In some cases this been shown to result in an almost 50% speedup in
+latency times for HTML documents with many images.
In order for Keep-Alive support to be used: +
See also MaxKeepAliveRequests.-This directive enables -Keep-Alive -support. - -
Apache 1.1: Set max-requests
-to the maximum number of requests you want Apache to entertain per
-request. A limit is imposed to prevent a client from hogging your
-server resources. Set this to
0 to disable support.
Apache 1.2 and later: Set to "On" to enable -persistent connections, "Off" to disable. See also the MaxKeepAliveRequests directive.
The number of seconds Apache will wait for a subsequent request
+before closing the connection. Once a request has been received, the
+timeout value specified by the
Timeout directive applies.
KeepAliveTimeout to a high value may
+cause performance problems in heavily loaded servers. The
+higher is the timeout, the more server processes will be kept
+occupied waiting on connections with idle clients.
