Hello apache web community,
 
I upgraded apache web server on RHEL 7 from v 2.2 to v 2.4. I have a question about the procs that are spawned after the web server is started up.
 
For example, when I would start v2.2 (./apachectl start) it would have the root process and spawn 2 additional apache procs. This would give me a total of 3 like so:
 
root          29124           1  0 12:14 ?        00:00:03 /opt/apache-2.2/bin/httpd -k start
apache    29129  29124  0 12:14 ?        00:00:00 /opt/apache-2.2/bin/httpd -k start
apache    29131  29124  0 12:14 ?        00:00:07 /opt/apache-2.2/bin/httpd -k start
 
However, when I start the new v2.4 proc, it only spawns 1 apache proc like so:
 
root          59585            1 28 16:08 ?        00:00:00 /opt/apache-2.4.39/bin/httpd -k start
apache    59591  59585 57 16:08 ?        00:00:00 /opt/apache-2.4.39/bin/httpd -k start
 
What controls that? I need that second apache proc to start up as the site starts giving status code 400 errors when trying to load static content.
 
Any tips or guidance that could lead me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
