  • For some of my web servers I setup and configure, for scaling I use the httpd.conf settings for these. Sometimes I forget which servers are prefork and which are worker MPM, so I use this to remind myself. Show Sample Output

  • This version also attaches to new processes forked by the parent apache process. That way you can trace all current and *future* apache processes.

  • Simply add this to whatever apache startup script you have, or if you are on a MAC, create a new automator application. This will show a pretty growl notification whenever theres a new Apache error log entry. Useful for local development
