Apache mod_mmap_static for super performance

Ok here is the deal if you do not want to switch to other web server software (e.g. Cherokee, thttpd, roxen, boa, lighttpd) and want the best performance for serving static files that do not often change the best solution is to use mod_mmap_static module. This module is not compiled in by default and you will need to recompile apache to enable it:


Don’t forget if any of your web files change – you will need to restart Apache web server…. it’s up to you now – use it or not :)
