For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Sample Annotated Prefork and Worker MPM configurations
Further httpd Configuration example from a Well House Consultants training course
More on Further httpd Configuration [link]

This example is described in the following article(s):
   • Tuning httpd / the supermarket checkout comparison - [link]
   • Tuning Apache httpd and Tomcat to work well together - [link]

Source code: mpmsample.conf Module: A603
# Sample Annotated Prefork and Worker MPM configurations
# Apache 2.2.x ... from /usr/local/apache2/conf/extra/httpd-mpm.conf

# Prefork MPM example - for systems with one cpu

# Setting up with 35 memory slots for servers (that's the serverlimit)
# and all 35 of them may be used (the maxclients). If you change the
# serverlimit you have to stop and restart the apache daemon, but if
# you only change maxclients you can do a "graceful" and not put a
# blip in traffic

# four server are started when the server is started, and the number is
# increased to a maximum of 35 (maxclients) as required, with four spare
# servers being opened up ahead as traffic increases. As traffic drops
# away, the server leaves eight open servers available and waiting.

<IfModule mpm_prefork_module>
    ServerLimit 35
    StartServers 4
    MinSpareServers 4
    MaxSpareServers 8
    MaxClients 35
    MaxRequestsPerChild 2000

# Worker MPM example - for systems with lots of cpus

# Initially, start two servers (startservers) each with a
# fixed number of threads (threadsperchild) - that's 25 each
# making an initial total of 50 thread. As traffic grows
# the pool of free threads will reduce; once it gets down
# to 25 (minsparethreads) start another server - that will
# add a further 25 threads because that's the size of blocks
# they come in. There's a maximum of 150 client threads, and
# they will be spread over six servers (thats calculated from
# maxclients / threadsperchild) so that in this example you
# mayt be service from six cpus.
