As the title says. System is running SuSE 9.3, apache2, and, since this is where the problem was first seen, php 5.2.0.
I was receiving an out of memory error on a php script, and from some of what I saw on the net, I thought I might be able to partially free memory by restarting apache2. After I did so, I refreshed my page's window, then went to take a look at the ps ax output. I found seven copies of the following line:
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
Is this normal, or do I have some kind of problem on this system I need to take care of?
