Apache HTTP Server - traditional non-threaded model
Each Apache Multi-Processing Module provides a different "flavor" of web server binary, compiled with a different processing model.
The prefork MPM provides a non-threaded implementation using a variable number of processes where each process handles only one connection at the same time. It is not as fast as threaded models, but is considered to be more stable. It is appropriate for sites that need to maintain compatibility with non-thread-safe libraries, and is the best MPM for isolating each request, so that a problem with a single request will not affect any other.
