I came across some really excellent tutorials on DigitalOcean on how to install LAMP on Ubuntu, but none of them mention anything about choosing a specific Apache MPM (Multi Processing Module).
The latest versions of Apache offer the Event MPM, which is the Apache’s only hope and fighting chance for good benchmarks against NGINX. The Ubuntu 14.04 LAMP image is configured with the oldest Prefork MPM, which is also the clumsiest and RAM hungriest of all Apache MPMs.
It would be great to see a tutorial on how to configure Apache in a LAMP setup to use the Event MPM with - or without - PHP-FPM.
