For cPanel & WHM 11.44

(Home >> Service Configuration >> Apache Configuration)

This collection of features allows you to configure Apache. Apache functions as your web server software and handles HTTP requests.

  • Global Configuration — This interface allows you to adjust several advanced features of the Apache web server.
  • PHP and suEXEC Configuration — This interface allows you to change Apache’s PHP handlers' configuration, PHP version, and enable or disable the suEXEC program.
  • DirectoryIndex Priority — This interface allows you to specify filenames that Apache will recognize and display as index pages.
  • Include Editor — This interface allows you to add other configuration files to your Apache configuration file (httpd.conf).
  • Reserved IPs Editor — This interface allows you to configure Apache to ignore HTTP requests on specific IP addresses. Use this feature if you wish to prevent the assignment of specific IP addresses to new accounts.
  • Memory Usage Restrictions — This interface allows you to examine Apache’s memory usage history and limit its consumption. The feature limits each individual Apache process, rather than all Apache processes combined. To activate this feature, click Proceed.

    Note:

    This feature increases your server’s stability but may result in a slight loss of performance.  

  • Log Rotation — This interface allows you to specify which Apache log files cPanel’s cpanellogd daemon should manipulate.
  • Piped Log Configuration — This interface allows you to pipe Apache access logs to a separate process, so that Apache does not need to restart every time that it processes the logs. To enable this feature, click Enable piped apache logs.
