    Hi everybody,

    Today, o one of my servers Ive changed Apache from 1.3 to 2.2. Afrer doing this Ive noticed the increased performance - pages load faster, server load is minimal. So everything is great ;)
    Ive compiled Apache with mpm_prefork, but Ive also noticed mpm_worker. As Ive browsed Apache documentation:
    1) prefork - more stability, lesser performance;
    2) worker - better performance, less stable in some cases.

    So I would like to know your expirience using worker.c and opinion – which is better - prefork or worker?

    (Sorry for my english)
