Subject [users@httpd] child process launching the child process in prefork
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2006 15:21:23 GMT
Hi All,

I am using apache 2.0.55(wirh prefork) on Linux,

In normal conditions single control process is responsible for launching
child processes which listen for connections and serve them when they

Problem: the child processes are also launching child processes, so when i
started(restarted) apache, it is starting with 15 ( or more) servers, even
though the StartServers is 5. Further more, to serve one request the total
processes are going as high as 48.

Can somebody tell me about the solution or where it went wrong? Is it
problem with Apache or OS (Linux) ?
