    Multiple instances of apache running

    Is it normal to have this in your process list?

    2658 (httpd) /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd / /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
    2680 (httpd) /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd / /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
    2681 (httpd) /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd / /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
    2691 (httpd) /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd / /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL

    Wouldn't this mean there are four instances of apache running? How do I stop that?

    I'm assuming you're using a normal prefork MPM, so that's completely normal to see multiple processes.

    If want prefork server:
    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/prefork.html

    But most server work with forked apache. It's normal.

    You can tune process count use directive TimeOut MaxClinets in your apache conf file.
