Hi Luca,

Thanks for reply.
Actually I want to use apache web server for some transaction where I can't
afford any type of failure. That's why I was trying If by mistake someone
killed or something happen to my parent process then still apache can
handle requests and serve. Thats why I have query that if parent process is
not there then what are the functionalities will I lost ?
