Hi all,

I installed apache-itk on ubuntu hardy lts and configured it with a user
as stated on the documentation file.

The only way to verify that apache-itk is really running is running from
console apache2 -V.

But I got a strange number of processes and I never see a process with
the user configured on the virtualhost.

For example:

<IfModule mpm_prefork_module>
    StartServers        150
    MinSpareServers     50
    MaxSpareServers     100
    MaxRequestsPerChild   0

but , from console:

ps aux | grep -c apache2

I was expecting 150+50=200 processes, with the userid stated in

Moreover, using mod-status I obtain :

45 requests currently being processed, 14 idle workers..

and I was expecting 50 idle workers..

What I'm missing?

Is there a way to log the uid transitions, as for debugging porposes
