Subject Re: [users@httpd] several instances of httpd running- is this normal?
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2003 17:11:58 GMT

I am no MAC expert, but on Unixes, Apache spawns a copy of the whole 
process for each client that's connected.
In Windows, you'd have threads for the connected clients instead of 
processes (much cheaper than spawning a whole process).
So, I think what you have there is right...
