RHEL/CentOS 7 – Which MPM should I use for multiple vhosts?

Simone ReF asked:

I’m working on a RHEL7 environment with Apache 2.4.6 and I need to set up several vhosts for several users (let’s say one vhost each UID).

In the last two days I’ve read almost everything related to MPMs and vhosts configuration.
A couple of questions have crossed my mind though:

  1. is mpm-itk the only MPM capable of handling multiple UID/GIDs e to set options in a per-vhost perspective?
  2. since it’s not native on RHEL based distros, is it possible to achieve the same thing without installing mpm-itk?
    • If yes: how?
    • if no: is it possible/safe to install mpm-itk on RHEL 7?

Don’t know if it is a silly question. I hope you can help me with this.

My answer:


The mpm-itk Apache module is available in the httpd-itk package in EPEL. I’ve never heard of anything else that solves the same problem in any similar manner.
