Apache 2.4 defaults to mpm_prefork from mpm_event on update

July 13, 2017 2.2k views
Apache Ubuntu 16.04

Running: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS Apache/2.4.18

Apache is set to mpm_event with php7fpm.

Every single time I do apt-upgrade and apache is updated it reverts back to mpm_prefork during the update process.

I can't figure out how to prevent this from happening. Any help is appreciated.
