    Apache - 2 processes with user root


    Hi,

    Why is that the ps command lists two apache processes with user root. In fact there should be just one process with root ownership which is used to listen for new connections. The second apache process with user root is seen as a child process of the other one with user root.

    Do you have the server listening to port 80 and 443? If so that's it.
