Subject Re: [users@httpd] Query regarding performance-differences, in using a "servlet" VS "PHP module"
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 17:02:57 GMT
Thanks Eric for the reply.

So, is it possible to run PHP in Apache, with each client-request being
serviced in a different thread (and not a new-process-per-new-request)?
Because, it is a well known fact that a process is a much-higher entity
than a thread.

If not, Apache-Tomcat looks to be clear winner over PHP-in-Apache (please
correct me if I am wrong) :)

Please, I must say at the outset that I am not in favour, or against any
technology, but just wish to gauge some inputs on Apache internals, from
the Apache experts :)
