    Default Apache Modules

    This is more a comment than a question. Apache comes stock on your Webmin VPSs loading like every module and their mother. On some of the lower end packages (ones with less than 512MB RAM), just loading a second instance of the server to handle a simultaenous request results in the VPS hitting it's upper memory limit.

    Why not pare down the list of pre-loaded modules to the bare minimum and let the user select which modules to load?

    I guess it's just as easy for the VPS admin to go de-select the modules (as I have done), but it's just a comment.

    decrease load and increase performance.

    apache 2 or 2.2
    modules : cache, deflate, disk cache, file cache, memcache, headers,

    Add following settings to httpd.conf

    StartServers 5
    MaxClients 250
    MaxRequestsPerChild 600

    <IfModule mod_mem_cache.c>
    CacheEnable mem /
