apache runs twice in the process of windows

Postby boremy03 » 26. January 2009 18:17

Hello,
first excuse my English I am French and my English is so poorly.
I use xampp on windows to create my local website.
Since version 1.7 when I run apache with xampp control panel, the process Apache.exe runs twice what diminishes my memory.
is this normal? or I have a configuration problem?
I used the installer to install the application xampp.
thank you for your response and good evening

I can understand and at least you have tried and that is good.

You don't have a configuration problem in relation to 2 apache processes running.

This is perfectly normal behavior.

There is always two apache.exe processes running, one of them being just a thin wrapper around the other.

Apache uses two processes as a failsafe and optimization mechanism, a parent process with a child process that handles the client requests.

The memory used is also normal as Apache is now resident in memory and will only take up a minimal amount to be ready for action when required and will only increase decrease as and when in use.

Please enjoy XAMPP and good luck.

Hello,
and thank you for your reply and explanation.
Now it is much clearer and I feel "reassured" .. not making improper installation.
Beautiful day
