Hi

I see the following in process manager:

2421 (Trace) (Kill) nobody 0 0.1 0.7 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
2422 (Trace) (Kill) nobody 0 0.1 0.7 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
2423 (Trace) (Kill) nobody 0 0.1 0.7 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
8040 (Trace) (Kill) nobody 0 0.1 0.7 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
2420 (Trace) (Kill) nobody 0 0.1 0.6 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
2389 (Trace) (Kill) nobody 0 0.1 0.4 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
Is there supposed to be multiple entries? What does this mean?

Thank you in advance.

Hello :)

Yes, it's normal to have multiple Apache processes running. Idle child server processes will wait for connections.

Thank you.
