Howto reduce the memory footprint of Apache

To reduce the memory footprint of Apache consider to remove the loading of the mod_mp3 and mod_perl modules. This can quite easy be accomplished by commenting out a few lines from your httpd.conf file:

#LoadModule mp3_module libexec/

#LoadModule perl_module        libexec/

#AddModule mod_mp3.c

#AddModule mod_perl.c

save changes and restart Apache with rc_httpd restart.

On a 0.2.7 test machine this dropped the memory footprint with 1 to 2 Mb per started httpd process.
