Server Bug Fix: Unable to enable mpm-event in httpd | centos 7

Original Source Link

I am kind of new to mpm and all so please don’t mind.
I have a web server running 8 websites (php based) on it. And my RAM usage goes over 90 % and the swap usage goes over 80 %. And when i check

service httpd status

the number of request generally bounces to 30k and i see a lot of httpd processes.
i tried to fix it via searching google and trying out this solution thinking that enabling php-fpm and mod_mpm_event will take all the loads off my RAM and SWAP, but it didn’t work and the sites loaded like this where as the original site looked like this. So,
i reverted to my old configurations.

my configurations:

00-mpm.conf

[[email protected] conf.modules.d]# cat 00-mpm.conf

# one of the following LoadModule lines:

httpd -l

[[email protected] conf.modules.d]# httpd -l
Compiled in modules:
  core.c
  mod_so.c
  http_core.c

SYS config:
RAM- 6 GB
SWAP- 6 GB
CPU- 8 Core
php -v: 5.4.16
httpd -v : 2.4.6

The image you provide show that you didn’t have a PHP handler set up (correctly).
You should be able to use (in 00-base.conf):

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so

Then make sure the following is not commented:

LoadModule mpm_event_module modules/mod_mpm_event.so

Finally you need to change:

<FilesMatch .php$>
    SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
</FilesMatch>

To:

ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*.php(/.*)?)$ fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/path/to/your/documentroot/$1
DirectoryIndex /index.php index.php

Make sure you use the correct /path/to/your/documentroot. Also, php-fpm needs to be running (and listening on 127.0.0.1 port 9000) for this to work. If it doesn’t work, look in de logs of both Apache and PHP-FPM. Usually these are located in /var/log/httpd and /var/log/php-fpm.
