I've got a [to me] puzzeling situation, that I hope somebody may be able to shed a little light on it.
I do a little bit of PHP programming so always have Apache, PHP and MySQL (+ the usual suspects) installed. I just set up a new computer and thought, for convenience's sake to try out the XAMPP installation. I downloaded and installed XAMP 1.6.1 using the installer file.
Now it all worked out great, however, I just noticed in the task manager that I have a total of 4 separate processes of Apache running, taking up quite some memory.
With my previous [manual] installations I only noticed one. When I check the services I have the entry of Apache 2 with the description of :
Apache/2.2.4. (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.4 OpenSSL/ 0.9.8e mod_autoindex_color PHP/5.2.1
Are those the four processes ? Do I have to have them all at once ?
I don't think I'll be doing anything (locally) that involves SSL ...
PS: I must also admit that my knowledge of actual Apache terms is very rudimentary.
