Subject [users@httpd] apache http running in multithreaded mode
Date Mon, 28 May 2012 20:10:16 GMT

I am new to apache httpd. I noticed that apache httpd spawns many
processes to server user request. one of the httpd process is the
master (i.e. running with root id on linux). the other ones are it
children ( i.e. running with daemon id). is the master httpd process
kind of like a load dispatcher and the ones running with daemon like
the workers ? Is there a way to build apache such that it does not
spawn new processes. instead it spawns new threads within the root
process to handle incoming request ?
