Required Apache Modules for Running WP? (2 posts)

    Does anyone know what are the minimum required Apache modules to run WordPress? I'm trying to optimize Apache on CentOS 5.2. Unfortunately, I don't know a lot about Apache. I have noticed that in the Apache httpd.config file, there are ~50 modules being loaded, which seems excessive. I'd like to cut that number down to improve Apache loading time, but I'm not sure which ones I should comment out.

    Any ideas, thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    For those interested, here is the list of modules in Apache 2.x I narrowed it down to:

    LoadModule dir_module modules/mod_dir.so
    LoadModule log_config_module modules/mod_log_config.so
    LoadModule mime_module modules/mod_mime.so
    LoadModule setenvif_module modules/mod_setenvif.so
    LoadModule alias_module modules/mod_alias.so
    LoadModule authz_host_module modules/mod_authz_host.so

    #--Module Required for WordPress
    LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
