Configure Apache for optimum performance
Another raging debate is on whether to use Worker or Prefork. Our Apache server uses the non-threaded MPM Prefork instead of the threaded Worker. Prefork is the default setting and we have left it at that. We haven’t had LVVuHV wLWK WKLV GHIDuOW FRnfiguUDWLRn DnG KHnFH DUHn’W motivated enough to try Worker.

Set the HostnamesLookups to ‘Off’ to prevent Apache from performing a DNS lookup each time it receives a request. The downside is that the Apache log files will have the IP address instead of the domain name against each request.
