Thanks everyone for your replies. I switched to mpm-worker, and I no
longer have the above memory problem.

Does anyone have both the worker mpm and phpmyadmin installed on
Ubuntu? When I run "apt-get install phpmyadmin", it tries to remove
apache2-mpm-worker and install apache2-mpm-prefork. I'm trying to
figure out if there is a workaround for this (I also asked on a
phpmyadmin forum but haven't heard back yet.)

Thanks,

Rex
