I'm not sure what you mean here. Apache doesn't authenticate at startup, it just starts. And
usually changes to a specific user if it can. Process IDs are just process IDs, not some kind
of authentication methods.

The stuff about different paths is correct though. :-)

More daemons yes, but not necesarily twice as much.

Look again at the line above. You see that it shows a path? That path pretty clearly states
that the httpd in /usr/local/sbin is running. A httpd in another path will show another path,
so you can see the difference.
