"Since my last article, the Apache Software Foundation has
released the fourth alpha version of Apache 2.0. In this
article, I will review some of the features new to the 2.0 series
and explain why they were added and how they will help site
"Piped logs are a feature that Apache has had for some time, but
they have just been added back into 2.0. Because they are a useful
feature and are brand new to the 2.0 series, I will discuss them
"Apache has always provided support for CGI programs through the
mod_cgi module. When a CGI request is received, the child process
that accepts that request creates a new process and runs the CGI.
The data output from the CGI program is then sent back to the
client as the response to the original request. This works fine
with Apache 1.3, but it has serious performance implications with
Apache 2.0. Mod_cgid avoids the performance problem by creating a
new CGI daemon process. Before any of the child process are started
in the parent Apache process, the mod_cgid module creates a new
process, which will become the CGI daemon."
