Hello everyone, I have done some testing on a local machine trying to optimize apache 1.3.37. I've looked on the internet for some time now and all I got was things like tuning keepalive and maxclients a.s.o. These are not important to me as they are very easy to tune. I wanted more so I have found on the apache site in performance tuning some patches that I want to apply to the server. I did all that including lingerd (by iAgora) and everything looks ok to me. My problems are: 1. I would like a copy or at least the spec used to build apache by cpanel because I need to recompile apache and would not want to miss something. 2. I am wondering, since I am using lingerd if it will be a good idea to have 2 apache servers, the main one with php and all the other modules, and an other to handle images ? The second server will be a minimal apache. The two servers will have the same config file in order for the light apache to know from where to read the images and the main one will use mod_proxy to communicate with the minimal one. 3. I have never compiled php statically into apache(I want to have apache compiled with all the modules inside it, to get rid of DSO support), is this possible or I am talking stupid things here ? 4. I know that probably all this does not worth the effort, still I want to do it. Every suggestion, help and even critics will be of good help to me, thank you!
