  • 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

    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.
