A way to run apache2-mpm-worker on debian server (4 posts)

    2.9.2-1 debian WordPress has a dependency on apache2-mpm-prefork.

    There is a way to use wordpress with Ubuntu with apache2-mpm-worker.

    apache2-mpm-worker allows performance and low memory use on virtual server slices, so I'd like to find a way to use it. Installing from source might be a good way, or maybe just a way to discover why the debian dependency is there. What are the SVN checkout tags for the 2.9.2 release?

    Any hints appreciated.

    Are you sure you are interpreting the dependencies correctly?

    This is how I read it;

    2.9.2-1 debian WordPress depends on;


    - (the) Apache HTTP Server metapackage

    - (which is) also a virtual package provided by apache2-mpm-event, apache2-mpm-itk, apache2-mpm-prefork, apache2-mpm-worker
    or httpd

    I saw that in debian packages docs also. So I tried a apt-get install and the debian wordpress package enforces a dependency on apache2-mpm-prefork. I since read how to get wordpress easily:

    svn co http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/2.9.2/

    But is there a real worry with multithreaded Apache2?

    Is avoiding it only a debian choice? Are others doing fine with apache2-mpm-worker as a web server module?

    Symptoms of attempted debian install:
    sudo apt-get install wordpress
    The following packages will be REMOVED:

    You could always just use the packages for Apache and install WordPress manually, which doesn't have any such specific requirement.
